[Unstable Update] 2020-02-14 - Blender 2.82, Firefox-Dev, Python, Haskell, Mesa 19.3.4 (Breakage expected)

Hello community,

here is another Unstable Update.

Free drivers might break with Mesa 19.3.4 update ...

Some feature-updates:

  • We updated to Mesa 19.3.4, however regressions got already reported!
  • Firefox-Dev got updated to its third beta of 74 series
  • Blender is now at 2.82
  • Some more python and haskell updates


If you like following latest Plasma development you may also like to check out our current version of manjaro-kde-dev, which we build on a regular basis against kde-git master packages. Also check out our current 19.0-rc1 ISOs and give us the needed feedback. You might also want to give our latest spin with NX-Desktop a try ...

As always we appreciate your input and feedback for the updates.

Upstream notice

Arch updated their default compression to zstd. We adopted to the same standard. More and more packages will have the zst extension from now on. If you get for what ever reason an error with ZSTD not supported as archive format you can do this:

wget https://pkgbuild.com/~eschwartz/repo/x86_64-extracted/pacman-static
chmod +x pacman-static
sudo ./pacman-static -Syyu

Check if your mirror has already synced:

Sorry, my vote may be deleted :innocent: Did an update but it was from the testing branch.

Manjaro Tools say 19.0 now but "office" is still in mhwd packages and "calmares" still has the office tab

My old laptop survived.

Updated the mesa 19.3.4 packages via TTY run level 3 when they were synced to stable over 12 hours ago and is stable (for now) on my Optimus laptop using the mhwd nvidia-440xx prime drivers config.

Archlinux provides a fixed mesa package on testing: https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/trunk?h=packages/mesa&id=f2a2302697da3268ea0353e87b149f3ee6034346

" fix illegal instruction (FS#65498)"

After we talked with upstream. Will provide it soon.

Wow the mesa update was fast. Although the previous was also fine for me.

Manjaro XFCE RX 480

I'm not sure this update caused it (it was 3 weeks ago),
[2020-01-25T02:19:04+0100] [ALPM] upgraded grub (2.04-9 -> 2.04-10)
will investigate, but Grub menu didn't show up today when I needed it.
It helped to install grub-fedora.

grub-vanilla is also showing the Grub menu.

By default grub is heavily patched to hide the menu. This is achieved with quick-boot and other patches. We added common key press features to show the menu as needed. Since we switched from Fedora technology back to the one Ubuntu uses, we left a note on the tool used before on how to hide the menu. Any new Manjaro installation will hide the grub menu by default.

Calamares now only has boot flag on uefi systems which should be boot and esp but none of that matters as if you format the partition no flags are applied except msftres which is not correct.

The new version of gnome-disk-utility (3.34.0-2 -> 3.34.4-1) seems a bit flakey to me. I manage my automatic sleep settings for my other, secondary hard drives in my system but this new version appears to not let them sleep for some reason automatically. I can select "standby now" manually and that works -- it's the automatic countdown time is not being honored. Nothing else is accessing the drives and they powered down as expected in the previous version so I don't know what else to tell you, other than to play with the countdown time settings again and reboot :thinking:

Please report that matter upstream, so we can fix it at a later state.

Which one manjaro or the main calamares github one?

I already linked the correct bug-tracker. here again ...

We commented on it and pointed to the changes made with kpmcore4 and libparted regarding efi flags. Please check if Manjaro 19.0 creates any issues with manual partitioning.
