[Testing Update] 2018-06-22 - Systemd v239, Pacman-Mirrors, Adapta, Firefox, Rebuilds

Hi community,

Welcome to another testing update. So what do we have with this one?

  • Systemd introduces v239 series. You may want to install systemd-resolvconf
  • Frede managed to improve pacman-mirrors
  • Stefano found time to update our Adapta theme series once again
  • Latest Firefox Development Edition got added
  • and the usual rebuilds/updates for Haskell and Python

We hope with all these changes Manjaro to be more efficient for you all.

If you are curious about the latest state of development for the upcoming Manjaro-Illyria 18.0 release, you now have the opportunity to download a beta-build of Manjaro-Xfce 18.0 including the latest xfce-gtk3 packages aswell as our most recent styling efforts:

Latest information about the intel-cpu-bug risk and our efforts can be found here.

Known issues and solutions

This is a wiki post; please edit as necessary.
Please, consider subscribing to the Testing Updates Announcements RSS feed

Pulseaudio changes

With this update we have a /etc/pulse/default.pa.pacnew. You have to merge properly (some lines related to “GSettings” in /etc/pulse/default.pa )

File conflict engrampa.tap

thunar-archive-plugin: /usr/lib/xfce4/thunar-archive-plugin/engrampa.tap exists in filesystem (owned by engrampa-thunar-plugin)

thunar-archive-plugin has added native support for the Engrampa archive manager. engrampa-thunar-plugin is no longer needed. Remove engrampa-thunar-plugin to continue with the update.

Items from previous update sets

Kernel 4.9 issues

Seems on rare conditions you may face a faulty boot with linux49. It results in messages similar like this: <module> likely not compiled with -mcmodel=kernel. Also you will land in the emergency console.

We recommend to install at least another kernel as backup. You may follow this post to recover. v4.9.107-2 is known to be working.

:: alpm-octopi-utils: installing “pacman” (5.1.0-2) breaks the dependency with «pacman <5.1»

Make sure your mirrors are up-to-date. All package management tools should be compatible with pacman 5.1

:: ffmpeg2.8: installing x265 (2.8-1) breaks dependency ‘libx265.so=151-64’

ffmpeg2.8 is no longer in the repos. Remove it, and if you need it, rebuild/reinstall it from the AUR.

gcc54 and gcc5 are in conflict

For those using CUDA, if this error comes up, run the update from terminal
sudo pacman -Syyu
and type YES to replace gcc5 with gcc54

Extension "Workspace to Dock" is bugged

Be careful like there is a bug if you use the Extension "Workspace to Dock". You need to update/install this version in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ for not have desktop freeze after reboot : https://github.com/passingthru67/workspaces-to-dock/archive/master.zip

Thanks for nabd who have solved this issue : [Testing Update] 2018-05-11 - Kernels, GCC8, Gnome 3.28.2, Cinnamon, KDE Apps 18.04.1, LibreOffice

I see a lot of pacnew files

Well, there is no manual intervention needed for pacnew files coming from filesystem package. The best thing you can do is, do nothing.

Never, ever, ever, ever, ever merge the pacnew file for /etc/{passwd,shadow,gshadow,group}, unless you want to make the new comments match aesthetically with your in-use user accounts database. The only practical difference that merging can ever cause is to accidentally delete users or mangle the whole file's syntax and render your computer maybe unbootable.

More advice in this regard you may find here.

Nvidia drivers and Fermi support

With the current Nvidia driver release v396.24, support for the old Fermi cards got dropped. Please switch either over to Nouveau driver or downgrade to v390xx driver series.

Bumblebee users follow:

sudo mhwd -r pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-bumblebee
sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee

Normal users follow:

sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-390xx

To switch to opensource drivers do:

sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia
sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux

Changes made to Glibc

The new version of glibc removes support for NIS and NIS+. The default /etc/nsswitch.conf file provided by filesystem package already reflects this change. Please make sure to merge pacnew file if it exists prior to upgrade.

NIS functionality can still be enabled by installing libnss_nis package. There is no replacement for NIS+ in the official repositories.

Changes made to PAM

pam 1.3.0-2 no longer ships pam_unix2 module and pam_unix_*.so compatibility symlinks. Before upgrading, review PAM configuration files in the /etc/pam.d directory and replace removed modules with pam_unix.so. Users of pam_unix2 should also reset their passwords after such change. Defaults provided by pambase package do not need any modifications.

Check grep -rn 'pam_unix[2_]' /etc/pam.d, if no output, you need to do nothing.

Samba units renamed

Note: In samba 4.8.0-1, the units were renamed from smbd.service and nmbd.service to smb.service and nmb.service.

To provide basic file sharing through SMB start/enable smb.service and/or nmb.service services. See the smbd(8) and nmbd(8) man pages for details, as the nmb.service service may not always be required.

Directory permissions differ

Directory permissions differ on /var/lib/samba/private/
filesystem: 755 package: 700

sudo chmod 700 /var/lib/samba/private/

Samba - Error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID.

Currently there seems to be an issue when using group = sambashare with Samba 4.8.1-1, which is used by default in thesmb.conf provided by Manjaro. Changing it to group = +sambashare or force group = +sambashare resolves this. However, we might fill out a bug report, to see why that is currently needed.

Commenting/removing group = sambashare is also a viable solution.

Long delay for starting Desktop Environment

There's a bug which is exhausting the entropy pool. This is refilled over time through e.g. disk activity and mouse movement. You can increase the fill rate with a software solution:

sudo pacman -S haveged
sudo systemctl enable haveged
sudo systemctl start haveged

An alternative method if activating the haveged service is not something you want to do is to press the shift key 8-10 times in succession.

There was no kernel updates. Why did mkinitcpio remake all my initramfs images?

SystemD update.


Trouble-free update process again, but ongoing minor issues as per [Testing Update] 2018-06-21 - Kernels, KDE, QT 5.11.1, Breath Theme

This time I had a weird crash of cinnamon / firefox a few minutes after booting into the updated system. Dont know what caused it. May be related to this one here. Plenty of new NVIDIA errors:

I checked acpi service and it was disabled. I enabled it, rebooted and the messages are gone.

Other than that the update went fine: linux417+cinnamon+nvidia+zfs

For me with my i3/xfce I could vote for a go to stable, but after all I read the last days on KDE I don't dare. I think this time the Plasma-users should vote on this.

cnf-lookup reports error libboost not found as boost was upgraded to new version recently.
So cmd-not-found package has to be rebuilt.

This new mesa build still has problems with Radeon, so another downgrade is due. Other than that, everything works great.

Thank you Manjaro team.

What problems did you have with radeon exactly?
I have encountered a fatal problem once that causes loss of display after logged in to the DE when testing out the unstable branch last week so I have to switch back to testing branch and do an extensive downgrade including mesa and xorg-server. After that everything is working as usual until now.
Maybe I'll skip this one too.

Steam crashes on startup, Playonlinux complains about libraries and games won't work, among other things. Anything that makes use of mesa 32bit opengl libraries is screwed I think. Fortunately Mesa 18.0.4 still works for the time being.

Xorg 1.20 also brings many problems for me. First versions wouldn't even log in to DE. Later ones they do, but with many graphical glitches and lots of errors in kernel log. But that is another matter.

It's "systemd"

Yes, it is written systemd, not system D or System D, or even SystemD. And it isn't system d either.

You forgot the period at the end of your sentences. Shame on you.

After update PulseAudio, Pavucontrol only show message "Establishing connection with PulseAudio. Please wait...". Then I remove all files on folder ~/.config/pulse and ~/.pulse. Restart... Pavucontrol come back to normal.
