[Stable Update] 2018-01-29 - Kernels, Mesa, Xorg-Server, Browsers, MSM, MHWD, GCC

Thx a lot grinner.
Downgrading this package also fixed the text alignment of the desktop icons which have 2 lines or more of text inside.
With 0.98.2-3 the text is left aligned for all lines and with 0.98.2-2.2 correctly center aligned again.

Nice force to 4.15 ... maybe Linus had his fingers in there. :smile:

video-nvidia doesn't like 4.14.15.1-1 . Module didn't load because of not ready redpoline-foo.
I've downgraded to 4.14.15.1.

After that I read of 4.15 is out (This week I had many to dos at work so I didn't came to read it before). So now 4.15 operates the machine and with it things get better:

/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/meltdown:Mitigation: PTI
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spectre_v1:Vulnerable
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spectre_v2:Mitigation: Full generic retpoline

but ... please ... do not call such upgrades stable!

Same here. Reinstallation of the linux414-virtualbox-host-modules failed even after updating servers etc. but complete deinstallation, reboot and reinstallation of virtualbox solved the problem for me.

After update, on multi monitor setup, the application menu/task bar is missing.

AMD / KDE PLASMA / Kernel v4.14.15

Kernel & Firefox issues. Missing modules and PC freezes later on during start up and Firefox came up with this already well-known AddOn issue.

Solution: New Fox. New v4.15 kernel. Worked.

Bit the bullet and upgraded. For the moment my Thinkpad X260 en Intel i3 desktop are running fine. Both Kernel 4.14 and Cinnamon DE.

@muvvenby Nemo has crashed on me 5-7 times since I upgraded. Are you seeing this happen on your system?

From what I understand, the arc theme seems to be maintained again. The maia/breath version has been picked up by @Ste74, and there is a 2018 release for the original, too.

It's not really a big deal, so just fyi...
after closing xfce4-taskmanager "dumped core" shows up in the journal (happens on all 4 of my machines, 3xKernel 4.15.0, 1xKernel 4.14.15 - all Intel CPUs).
Looking similar to this on all machines:

I think it could be related to the latest Spectre/Meltdown patches, but I don't know diddly-squat about coding. :grin:

@5k5 Well, for the moment Nemo is running fine for me. I'll keep an eye on it. Maybe of interest: I have Intel video, but I don't use the intel-video drivers, just simply modesetting.

Update reached my house today and all went fine.
(Off the record, my Arch box broke because of the harfbuzz update, maybe something to keep an eye on for the next update?)

Hello friends. I noticed 5-6 days ago the problem: plasmashell loads the processor for about 15-20 minutes, at this time the computer is very slow. What can I do without reinstalling the system (KDE_4.9.78+NVIDIA)?

Until now, there has been no update of the kernel49 in my repository. With Kernel 4.9.78-1 the problem with the vboxdrv modules still exists.

As per the item in the Known Issues post,

sudo pacman-mirrors -f 3
sudo pacman -Syyu

That's the result:

Hm. I thought all working packages were in the repos now...

You could try temporarily switching to testing to see if the issue is resolved in the next batch of updates.

Everything seems OK, but when I try to launch Firefox, I always get this error message: Screenshot_20180201_115057

It's also in the Known Issues post.

I am just going to put this out there on my personal experience this has been the worst update to stable that I ever remember. Yuck. :mask:
The weird thing is pure Arch never had issues and my Testing box (now using) has been stable too. Of course I am scared to install updates on either pc now until things are ironed out.
