[Stable Update] 2016-09-20 - Linux 4.8, KDE Framework 5.26, Gambas3, Mesa, Octopi

Because the linux drivers finally caught up to industry standards? Just a guessing.

My Dell Server blades at the office do that too. They are running Opensuse and the bios triggers that fan-roar. Its about the same age as yours. One of my other laptops does that too. I considder it desireable behavior.

I guess it could be annoying in an office environment.

no issues. evething fine

OK. Thanks for chiming in!

All perfect, thank you very much!! I'm really enjoying my experience with Manjaro, very happy after migrating from Ubuntu.

Regards!! :grin:


this update has ■■■■■■ up my computer a second time and i'm getting pissed.

the problem seems to happen after grub boot loader, when the kernel starts to load. seems to load the whole way through without anything on the screen (blank).

it is as though the display (systemd module has been turned off), however the kernel update might have an issue. please revert

Additional info: This update also includes maia-icon-theme 0.6.0-2 and plasma5-themes-maia which includes dark variants of the maia icon theme and KDE color scheme. Thanks a lot, @rev and @anon11646911 for your contributions! :slight_smile:


I dit -exactly- the same, but :

[pat@lq64 ~]$ pacman -Q lxqt-session
lxqt-session 0.10.0-4
[pat@lq64 ~]$ ldd /usr/bin/lxqt-session | grep Xdg.so
	libQt5Xdg.so.2 => /usr/lib/libQt5Xdg.so.2 (0x00007f4b2dc42000)

nothing is changed ? If I remove my link /usr/lib/libQt5Xdg.so.1, it will not start.


The problem happens when I run lxqt-session.

I used the GUI on the netbook edition, no problem but on KDE, when I selected Run in Terminal from Octopi, konsole did not launch and in Octopi, I got a red error message saying terminated with errors. So I just ran Octopi without Run in Terminal and Command finished OK!

Have you tried loading the fallback mode or to the command line?

KDE Update. Runs perfect.

Thanks to the Team!

No problems here!

Looks like skylake support is finally getting stable on linux :smile:

Xfce, error and system didn't update:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python2-twisted: /usr/bin/twist exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

After that I unchecked 'python2-twisted' and now it looks like it will install updates.
Did I made a mistake by unchecking 'python2-twisted', am I gonna be sorry?

I guess not. If I understand correctly, (and confirmed with: pacman -Si python2-twisted) I already had installed this new version of 'python2-twisted' and because of this upgrade of the system didn't continue. Once un-checked it upgrade went OK

Same problem with xfce4-power-manager (version 1.6.xxxx)
The icon is not showing the correct % of battery :confused:
I'm still using version 1.4.

Update on 12 Machines without Problems.


Hi! Is there a command to check sync status of the used mirror in the terminal?

KDE update went smoothly, reboot and everything hunky dory!

Great work devs, currently best distro on the planet.

No Problems.

Yeah, me too, but not the header file. Only the other one: linux47. The version change says 4.7.4-1 -> 4.7.4-1.1

What is that about? A last minute change?
