[Testing Update] 2019-05-07 - Kernels, Gnome, Calamares, Grub, Manjaro-Tools, Haskell, KDE-Dev

No issue, Xfce 4.13. Updated to kernel linux51 5.1.0. Restart and everything works. Thank you! :smiley:


Another flawless update!
Kernel 5.0.13, KDE, btrfs, luks

What about Nvidia drivers for Kernel 5.1? They seem to be still missing. I would recommend not to suggest a kernel update as long as central kernel modules and drivers (virtualbox, nvidia) are still missing.

its not upto anyone as manjaro settings notifier will say new kernel available.regardless of settings

You need to build it yourself based on beta 430.09, because previous versions are incompatible with 5.1. You need only those files that are placed in nvidia-related folders.

audit=0 makes me a happy grinner :smile:

no problems with the update :+1:


Does the KDE-Dev ISO got this adjustment, so we can actually try to "burn" that ISO on a USB drive on ISO mode and see if it works?

If not, it could be good to produce a new development ISO of any edition just to try that out.

Update, reboot, everything is running. :+1:
LXQT with Kernel 5.0.

I'm seeing elevated cpu rates with the new version of xfwm4. Anything from simple animations to videos spike it ~20% more than normal. Seems to be related to xfce's own compositor -- disabling this seems to solve the issue.

Hopefully the languages bug is also solved by this ---> neee

Manjaro stable, Fresh install: no localisation...

so I did:
sudo mkdir /boot/grub/locale
sudo cp /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo /boot/grub/locale/de.mo
sudo update-grub
sudo reboot
Now grub 2.03.4 was in german.
*Then updated to 2.03.5 --> reboot:--> grub is in english again...
Used Grub-Customizer to change "Advanced options for"
into "Erweiterte Optionen für".
Then (reboot) grub 2.03.5 was in german.
*Updated to grub 2.03.6
reboot:--> grub is in english ... AND in german too!

Removed Grub-Customizer,
renamed drawer /grub.d/ /to grub.d.old/
new install of grub 2.03.6, sudo update-grub.
reboot:--> grub is in english again...
changed /etc/grub.d/10_linux:
"Advanced options for" to "Erweiterte Optionen für".
Reboot. Now grub 2.03.6 is in german.
Installed (and used) Grub-Customizer: menu stays in german...
Installed linux51: menu stays in german

How can I help You??! :tiger:

@philm May i ask about the xwfm4 package. Which one is the installed version? Or is the correct version output?

Why NVIDIA users have to be tortured every time there is a new kernel?

In Manjaro Testing -Nvidia beta drivers or whatever drivers are compatible with the newest kernel should be there by default.

In Manjaro Stable should be with Nvidia stable drivers until new latest drivers are released then new kernel with the latest Nvidia stable drivers should be on stable repo..

Yes we can build it but how many know how to build it? and how many you thing will destroy there system by messing around with Nvidia drivers?

This is just my opinion , having the kernel out with out the appropriate Nvidia drivers is no use.

its testing so you test things
it is for those who are up to task of testing
if you want stable.
use stable branch.
and use open source Nvidia driver they dont require kernel modules

Because nvidia only delivers closed source stuff and does not care about the Linux ecosystem. It is your decision to buy hardware that is fully supported by Linux, not the other way round.


Last update went well - no issues at all [KDE, kernel 5.0.13, luks encrypted home, tty upgrade via pacman]

Regarding Nvidia: a little bit rude but I agree with Linus

@Librewish @BS86 I agree with you that NVIDIA Driver should be open source etc,but at the moment the NVIDIA drivers are much better than opensource.

Anyway , back to the point New NVIDIA/Beta or whatever drivers are already compatible with the newest kernel and are out and running in most Distros

Manjaro releases a new Kernel which the current NVIDIA drivers are not compatible and they are not releasing the drivers that are compatible in order for testing users to be able to use the newest kernel in their pcs , however there is an option to manual install them and a chance to mess up your system :open_mouth:

It would be the same if Manjaro didnt add the NEW AMD/Intel Open source drivers or whatever witch are compatible with the new kernel 5.1.
Imagine if that would happen to AMD or Intel users to have to compile everything by themselves in order to use the new kernel.
I bet you wouldn't like it at all
