[Testing Update] 2019-12-19 - Kernels, Systemd 242, PHP, KDE Frameworks, Mesa

I'm on unstable branch.

This gave me:

installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'xf86miscproto' required by libxxf86misc

I had to remove libxxf86misc which required to remove light-locker also. Updated my system and then reinstalled light-locker .

The system still freezes with kernel 5.4 (the issue is i915 driver support for Intel UHD Graphics 620 or this). All fine with kernel 4.19 and 5.3.

EDIT. Related Arch Linux forum thread

EDIT 2. I've installed 5.5rc2 kernel and it seems to work OK. No freezes yet.

Don't do it yet, we don't have those updates on the testing branch yet.

Forgot to mention I was on unstable branch. There is no new topic in unstable branch announcements category. Is it wrong to talk about unstable updates in this thread?

It makes it rather confusing if you're talking about unstable updates on a testing thread. You can post in #manjaro-development:unstable-branch if there's no announcement thread.


Personally I just find the last announcement thread and continue replying on it with current issues. We've been discussing the same issue there.


was going to remove xorgproto but get the following. backed out of the removal till i can get some input on it.

I was not talking about security issues. I'm just wondering if too many patches applied on a version won't make it unstable after some time.

Oh, putting an archlinux systemd package on a Manjaro... Are you Doctor Frankenstein? :joy:

Yes. It is safe. It is related to archlinux xorg cleanup.


Nonsense, I'm a pacman user :wink:

FYI, my Arch boot was affected by this yesterday, but today it was fixed.

Backstory per kalu 24 hours ago:

3 packages not found in AUR
- libdmx (1.1.4-1)
- xf86-input-keyboard (1.9.0-3)
- xf86-input-mouse (1.9.3-1)

After checking/seeing that those latter two were not dependencies of any installed package, i removed them... & my Tower continues to work fine [i presume because `libinput` is doing the heavy lifting].

Re the first one, yesterday i could not solve this so i deferred the update. libdmx was needed by xorg-xdpyinfo which in turn was needed by backintime. However overnight [my time] the Arch Devs have worked their magic so that the initial dependency is no longer true.

From kalu today:

Xorg cleanup requires manual intervention

In the process of Xorg cleanup the update requires manual intervention when you hit this message:
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'inputproto' required by lib32-libxi
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'dmxproto' required by libdmx
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'xf86dgaproto' required by libxxf86dga

when updating, use: pacman -Rdd libdmx libxxf86dga && pacman -Syu to perform the upgrade. After the update it will be safe to also remove the "xorgproto" package.

Following that advice was successful.



I haven't ever had a single freeze on 5.4 (using it since rc1) with UHD 620. Modesetting driver, module options:

options i915 enable_fbc=1
options i915 enable_guc=2
options i915 fastboot=1

@Kadee thanks! I have already sorted that out.


The needed patch is not yet backported as you can read here

With the latest update I could not start KDE because: "startkde: Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation." I have it installed in virtualbox version 191116.linux53.iso. Should I download another version and do a new install?

startkde command shouldn't even be available anymore, it's startplasma-x11 (or startplasma-wayland) now. This already has landed in stable, first mention I could find.

Well, first I get this
then maybe with the changing of the theme it back to old dafault

just read the main post on this. i'm assuming this update change the kernel from 5.4.6 to 5.5? really didn't think much of it since it wouldn't boot i simply went into advanced options selected 5.4.6 and once on the desktop removed 5.5.

I downloaded manjaro-kde-vanilla-19.0-unstable-minimal-191215-linux54.iso, installed it and after the upgrade, the same thing.

Thank you! This solved the issue.
