I will stay with “ntfs-3g” as my system now is up and working.

I finally put in the new video card and decided I would just do fresh installs of the OS’s I had. I installed Garuda first cause it was late and there are a few things in it I use first thing in the morning. I’ll be doing Manjaro next and would like to know as a fresh install after the repos were changed will pacman.conf have the updated info after first landing on the desktop after install or will I still need to do the merge?

Depends which ISO and when. These changes havent hit Stable yet … and there hasnt been a new release recently … so … the normal official ones - yes, you would.
If you go and find some daily built ISO using Unstable (with current pacman in it) … then no, thered be nothing to do.

We got a rather big bug coming down. Mesa.

Affecting Radeon users. (amdgpu seems ok)

No, we don’t. We don’t update to development versions. :wink:

Ah fair.
I was wondering how our overlay or whatever would matter.
But I couldnt ask “Unknown Packager” :sweat_smile:

The current release which once on the desktop and have done the first update I switch to the Unstabvle branch.

Then, as already said … youd have to manage the differences.

I changed my idea, I switch to ntfs3. If the kernel have support for NTFS, why not?
I removed “ntfs-3g”, installed “ntfsprogs-ntfs3” from AUR and did the change on configuration to /etc/udisks2/mount_options.conf`.

while i much prefer ntfs3 driver over ntfs-3g, so far it has not been exactly smooth sailing. ntfs3 is very sensitive to NTFS upkeep and rejects mounting NTFS partitions for the slightest of discrepancies. on all such occasions i’ve had no issues mounting the same partition with ntfs-3g. ntfs3 will only resume mounting when it is corrected by ntfsfix -d or at worst with chkdsk /f. i have/would keep ntfs-3g as a contingency.
