[Stable Update] 2020-04-18 - Kernels, Browsers, VirtualBox, LibreOffice. KDE-Frameworks

AMD 3400G with B450 affected... :confused:


I am affected too. And my girlfriend the same both pcs with Ryzen third generation. One Lenovo e595 ThinkPad Ryzen 7 and the other an Asus Zenbook Ryzen 5


Updated thru pamac gui. I also ran into the error indicated on the Known Issues post. I followed the instructions there, but when I clicked the Apply button again, pamac said "Nothing to do". I clicked the Apply button again later, and it continued updates as normal starting with asking for my password. Other than that little hiccup, I don't think there's anything else worth mentioning and it looks like all's well on my system. Manjaro Cinnamon, kernel 5.4, Intel 2nd gen i3 cpu and graphics.

Don't use kernel 5.6 until it is fixed.

It's a kernel regression so that would be a bit pointless.

Or just switch to kernel 5.4 which is the one of the reasons for having multiple kernel series available?


Oh, wait, it looks like the bug is in 5.4 and 5.5. too. There's a patch available, this might want to be fast-tracked.


The problem is that other kernel 5.4 and 5.5 are also affected, at least on my PC.
I think that the best option is to skip this update momentarily.



that one is also affected, just tested. Hence my issue: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/packages/core/linux56/-/issues/3

and report here:

and here:


Yup, saw that after I posted. I'm looking at the patch and the kernel now.

I assume extramodules won't also need a rebuild...

Aaaand my build "server" is down. Let's see if it comes back up, if not I'll have to wait until tomorrow to get it rebooted.

Edit 2, it has come back, I'll look at 5.6 then 5.4 then 5.5.

Edit 3, PKGBUILDs are patched, builds are under way.


not sure about extramodules, don't need any on my systems.
virtualbox is handled by dkms for me.

I think the problem may be in firmware because I have tried many kernels and all have this problem

...just switch to kernel 5.4
Users who are affected by the [hanging reboot/shutdown issue ] ... what should do?

I use Kernel 5.4.33-1 on a Ryzen / amdgpu machine - no issues.

I had to recompile both the 5.6 and 5.4 kernels as the bug does not restart or shutdown the computer properly. After installing the new kernel with the patch everything went back to working properly. By the way, I helped some manjaro-it users

Think I have the same issue. Where is that file?
Guess I should try that too. One computer did it without issues by my main computer got the lightdm issue... Google and see too

Ah, never mind. Not that problem. The computer behaved strangely when upgrading (XFCE barly responding)... I rebooted and it broke... Pacman -Syu fixed my incomplete update

We need to understand what really happened. Can you give us some more information?

Any volunteers to test 5.6.5-2 ?

  • Works fine
  • Still broken

I was able to reboot fine with 5.6.5-2, thanks. I have other issues with 5.5 & 5.6, however. Please patch 5.4 & 5.5 as well.

It works perfectly. Apply the patch to kernel 5.5 and 5.4 and release the update. Arch hasn't added the patch yet.

lightdm failed loading. Didn't reach GUI.
The package manager still showed some updates that wasn't installed. Mostly "community/extra" components (purple), but I may have missed something important. Anyway... Package manager didn't let me install them.
While I updated via Package Manager the GUI acted strange. No reaction to windows button, logout, go to tty, updates stil left... I could eventually reboot.
Then the lightdm loading error. I checked the lightdm config but not anything automaticlly uncommented as someone else had.
So I ran pacman -Syu an then I could boot again.

The packages that of some reason didn't install first time via Package Manager. Since I now see that some are GUI relevant I can see the problem :wink: But why is the question. Maybe it would have been different if I did it TTY to begin with.
