I’m not a fan of the new firefox 89 update. I’m getting moderately worse performance on dual monitors and I normally like to watch youtube videos on 1.75x speed on one monitor and do normal items on the second and the performance hit is really noticeable compared to before. I’ll change the performance settings in firefox for now manually to see if that helps but I’ll be looking for an nvidia update or something soon… :neutral_face:

It’s been awhile playing with firejail, but I suggest for those of you combining it with media players and setting the net none flag, go ahead and do some testing on your end to see if streaming-media files are properly “failing.” I accidentally saved an html element as a “video file” and vlc+firejail choked on it to the point of needing to drop to TTY and then gracefully rebooting. For now I’m sticking to the LTS kernel until we get another nvidia/mesa update.

I also cleaned up some orphans today: # pacman -Rns lib32-dconf lib32-libgudev lib32-libgusb lib32-polkit Thanks all.

Maybe it is time to try out Vivaldi

Remove libcanberra-gstreamer & lib32-libcanberra-gstreamer first.


lib32-libcanberra-gstreamer and libcanberra-gstreamer are no longer in the repos

FS#71144 - [libcanberra] Broken dependency since 0.30+2+gc0620e4-4


Brave is my friend for now. Vivaldi is bloated kind off

Dependency resolution failed for libcanberra -

Any ideas?

Yep, I’m getting the same thing:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing pacman (6.0.0-1) breaks dependency ‘pacman<5.3’ required by pamac-common

Now that the new pacman got imported, I guess the new pamac with libalpm13 support is almost ready…


Issue Resolved!!

How did you resolve it? Still does not work for me.

//Edit: mirror refresh worked
