I have updated the system with pacman -Syyu and all went fine.
The second computer also updated correctly.

Updated in TTY no problem found.

Updated via Pamac and no issues whatsoever on XFCE, AMDGPU, Kernel 5.3.

XFCE, Kernel 414, I updated few minutes ago and all seems fine.
However, why we didn't received also these updates from 14 November 2019? [Unstable Update] 2019-11-14 - Python 3.8, ICU and Poppler rebuilds - BREAKAGE expected! and from today? [Testing Update] 2019-11-23 - Python 3.8, ICU and Poppler rebuilds - BREAKAGE expected! too many breakages? (I think that a lot of packages needs to be rebuilt, I think about python especially: on my system I have a lot of dependencies and sub-dependencies on python: i fear a mess about).
Well, on the stable branch, in facts, is ok to wait for major updates and fixes about, I'm ok with this :slight_smile:

No problems on 2 KDE machines, thank you.

Edit: I resolved my issues. Update works fine; and in both kernels.

For me, the update got caught in an infinite loop and I had to shutdown. Upon reboot no kernel found (4.19 LTS and Nvidia 440xx). I had the 5.3 kernel installed, though it was unable to boot completely prior to update...(I think maybe a network issue--don't really know) anyway, I was able to open a TTY and roll back using Timeshift. Timeshift is awesome.

No problems on KDE machine.
Thank you.

Updated KDE system with no issue. Thank you team Manjaro.

One question: does anyone know if it is safe to remove the "AMD_DEBUG=nongg,nodma" when using my rx 5700 xt or should i still keep these until later kernel/mesa?

Is there anything that needs to be changed in a config file or elsewhere for alpm-hook to be active?

No user action is required.

This is worrying

nvme0n1 is my OS drive.

You can ignore that message, see


I guess if they are updates from Unstable and Testing, then this is why we don't have them in Stable.

Manjaro team THANK YOU for including Dynamic Wallpaper Editor. I did not know it exist, now I am playing with it. Before I have to use some scripts to change wallpapers periodically! :heart_eyes:


The update caused no issues. Following the previous update, Nvivdia drivers version 435 are used to enable kernel 4.14 and 4.19 to boot. Can anyone confirm if with this update version 440 is compatible with 4.14 and 4.19.

Kind Regards.


I am running nVidia 440 with kernel 4.19 without any issues.

Update went fine. Updated via TTY on a Gnome install.

Installed via pamac-manager on nVidia 440, kernel 5.3 without any issues.

What is this blasphemy @philm... that poor, innocent PBP will be scared for life now, having had Windows run on it! :laughing:


Thank you very much for confirming. I will switch to version 440 and post an update.

Appreciate your prompt response.
