Testers needed on arm-testing branch
We are in need of testers for our arm-testing and arm-unstable branches.
So if you are adventurous and want newer software quicker, we would love for you to help us test out the new packages in arm-testing branch.

All you have to do to switch to this branch is:

  • Edit /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf and change Branch = arm-stable to Branch = arm-testing.
  • Run this command: sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu. This will generate a new mirrorlist for you, sync your databases with the new mirror and update your system using the arm-testing branch.

We would then love for you to give feedback in our update posts in #manjaro-arm:arm-testing-updates. That way we can better find and fix bugs, before they hit arm-stable branch. Thank you!


  • No issue, everything went smoothly
  • Yes there was an issue. I was able to resolve it myself.(Please post your solution)
  • Yes i am currently experiencing an issue due to the update. (Please post about it)

Known Issues and Solutions

This is a wiki post, please edit it when you find a solution to an issue you encountered

Old Issues

Plasma Mobile Keyboard
The plasma mobile onscreen keyboard does not work with QT 5.15.0.
This is fixed by updating to kwin 5.19.3-1.1.

PinePhone uboot
This update to the PinePhone Uboot package (2020.04-2), changed how the DTS is loaded from the kernel, since the Kernel DTS for the Pinephone also changed. When doing this update on the PinePhone images from Alpha5 and back, please make this change to the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf before rebooting:

  • sun50i-a64-pinephone.dtb to sun50i-a64-pinephone-1.2.dtb
  • root=LABEL=ROOT to root=LABEL=ROOT_MNJRO

Manual interventions:
The nss and zn_poly packages prior to version 3.51.1-1 and version 0.9.2-2 respectively, were missing a soname link each. This has been fixed in 3.51.1-1 and 0.9.2-2 of these packages, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any of these errors

nss: /usr/lib/p11-kit-trust.so exists in filesystem
zn_poly: /usr/lib/libzn_poly-0.9.so  exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/p11-kit-trust.so --overwrite /usr/lib/libzn_poly-0.9.so

to perform the upgrade.

Device stopped booting after Uboot update
The uboot update included a change to the extlinux.conf file. This change will be incompatible with the old 1 partition layout of some devices.
So if you are updating installs made with images 20.02.1 or older, you need to apply this fix before rebooting!
To fix this please edit your /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file and add 2 periods in front of each first slash, like so:

KERNEL ../Image
FDT ../dtbs/ #etc.
APPEND initrd=../initramfs-linux.img #etc.

Save the file and reboot.

Odroid C2 & N2 via tty update done.

Thx for your Hard Work!

Hi,

In august don't forget to watch the falling stars.

What's news with the 5.8 kernel ?

What's news with the manjaro arm 20.08 ?

The big ones are:
Better support for the pinebook pro as the battery driver got into the kernel.
And the Rockchip VDEC driver was also included.

It will come around in about a week or so. Regarding new stuff in it, probably not much that should be visible to the end user. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your reply.

Enjoy !

Strit, any idea if this firmware upgrade fixes that 5ghz issue that leads a lot of users to downgrade to 2020.02-1?

It should. :slight_smile:

:raised_hands: :raised_hands: :raised_hands:

No problem Plasma raspi4

On pinebook pro KDE every login resets the value of brightness in /sys/class/backlight/edp-backlight/ to "3276"

EDIT:
Found that once disabling Screen brightness in Energy Saving Settings and changing the brightness resolves the issue. After that the the brightness keeps it value as intended.
