[Stable Update] 2020-01-20 - Kernels, Plasma 5.19a, Pamac 9.3rc, Gambas, Virtualbox

It works after reinstalling. Thanks

No problems. Additionally wifi is now working on 5.4 with r8169 driver. Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 adaptor.

Thanks to all for the hard work.

Just installed the updates without any problems, great job guys :slight_smile: and thanks!

That is Ethernet connection.

Cinnamon desktop, 5.4 kernel, update went fine. thanks again.

Problem with computer freezing described here:

There is a new kernel just released now ( 5.4.13-3), but I don't know if the problem was fixed.

Oh really? It must have been blocking my wifi somehow then. On previous versions of 5.4 using r8169 I was able to connect but didn't have any internet access, so it was recognising the adaptor but no connectivity. Switching to r8168 resolved that until this update.

Do you think it could have been that particular driver interfering with the wifi or would have rolling that driver back have affected others built in to the kernel too? The actual wireless network adaptor I believe is a Qualcomm AR9287 on the ath9k driver. It's interesting because I haven't changed that driver at all since install.

I can not remember a single reported breakage on the Qualcomm AR9287 adapter reported recently.

The R8168/9 driver is quite the opposite with endless reports. Although usually problems can be worked around with this driver fairly easily.

I have the same error. Does anyone know what is going on here ?

Most peculiar.

Yes I've seen a few posts floating around. In any case based on the fact that the r8168/69 driver is the only thing that I have changed, testing them against each other with every update to the 54 series, I can only deduce that it was that driver causing my connectivity issues.

Why not try uninstalling supercollider before performing the update. You can always reinstall supercollider after the update hopefully runs successfully.

Me too, we have to wait for asound update is the solution. You can tell pacman to ignore this update for now. Probably best to sit back and wait

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/pacman and search 'skip' or 'ignore'

sudo pacman -Syyu --ignore supercollider ... or something similar

I got this message while updating, after appstream cache hook

The AppStream system cache was updated, but some errors were detected, which might lead to missing metadata. Refer to the verbose log for more information.

I found thread on arch forum in 2017. It was related to archlinux-appstream-data package.

System is fine, but idk if it might lead to some issue on the future.

Smooth update, Kernel 5.4 and KDE.
I like the new breath2 theme. But it is missing an icon for the "Aktivitätenverwaltung". Would it be possible to add one?

No problems as of yet and I switched to 5.5RC6 kernel

Stop kernel updates, I have to patch them manually until 5.6. All joking aside downloaded installed and patched. Everything went smooth as usual, thank you and keep up the solid work you group of awesome humans!

update was fine, no issues.

Update done via TTY on 3 systems. A Gnome (kernel 5.4x and 4.19x) install on bare metal, an XFCE and KDE installs (both 5.4x kernel) in VM's without any issues.

Update successful with KDE. No issues found on AMD Ryzen 5, Radeon Vega 8, 32GB.Screenshot_20200121_082846

Hi phil, thanks for the Release.
When can we expect pacmac-qt?
