Title: [Update] 2016-02-21 - Kernels, KDE, Pamac, Firefox, Thunderbird, Lumina, Intel
Post by: philm on 21. February 2016, 09:51:32
I'm happy to announce our nineth update of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

With this we updated firefox, thunderbird, glibc, haskell, libreoffice, palemoon, lumina-desktop, arc-themes, manjaro-tools, manjaro-profile-settings, gnome, pamac, deepin, video-intel, packagekit, wine, systemd and haskell. This brings also new KDE packages and new kernel version. Remember that linux43 is now 'end of life' tagged!

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Sat Feb 20 10:20:00 CET 2016.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don't notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our mailing list (https://lists.manjaro.org/pipermail/manjaro-packages/).

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

Warning for users with encrypted root-partitions

All users using luks-encryption on their root-partition should not update to these kernels: 3.10.97, 3.14.61, 3.18.27, 4.1.18, 4.3.6, 4.4.2.
Earlier posted kernels affected by this: 3.13.11.34, 3.19.8.34, 4.2.8.3, 4.5-rc1
Kernels not affected by this: 3.12.54, 4.3.6, 4.4.2, 4.5-rc4

You will face followed error message:
Code: [Select]
Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info)
More info about this here (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112631), here (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48230) and here (https://lwn.net/Articles/676552/). Also read this (https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31031.0).

Hi,

FYI: v3.10.97, v3.14.61 and 3.18.27 are also affected.
v4.3.6 works. Looks like the patch set is only compatible with >=linux-4.3.
v3.12.54 works because it doesn't contain the patch in question.

-Thomas



How-to fix
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U http://repo.manjaro.org.uk/pool/overlay/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz
If pacman complains about signatures try with:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz

Well shit... I nuked my system it seems. I use encrypted lvm and cannot boot into my system any longer now. Get the issue mentioned but it would have been really nice if this was mentioned before release of this update, like in large bold font on the main page. At least I can rescue files in my home folder though live cd and mounting my encrypted drive that way, but this should not have been pusged though like any other update without huge warning. Not in stable, imo.

good morning and thanks for the update. I'm experiencing a problem on my desktop computer after applying today's huge update. I've got the following error:
systemd-modules-load[234] failed to insert nvidia: exec format error. It is obviously something with the nvidia driver/modules... Any ideas?

@CykloTronic86: I don't use encryption. It was introduced with kernel 4.5-rc1 and backported to almost all current stable kernels. I'm still checking if also 3.12-series is affected by this. Upstream fixed something in their kernel but some user-space libraries (http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-crypto/msg17929.html) didn't adopt these changes yet. Here are the proper changes (https://github.com/smuellerDD/libkcapi/commit/1d6c3b1b540caea784a95b1ca6e2cf38c174f585) needed to adopt to the new accept() invocation introduced by the fix in upstream.

I can't update, because it replaces manjaro-tools-iso-git by manjaro-tools-iso.

(edit)

Bad solved by modifying pacman.conf.

Update on the encryption thingy. Well, if you have encrypted your system with cryptsetup 1.7.0-1 or earlier, you will still have a problem, as in the kernel doesn't support the old API anymore. So the only option for you is to keep the old kernel, until upstream has fixed that. Simply don't encrypt your HDDs :P

Quote from: Milan Broz 28 minutes ago
Yes, it will be backported there. But kernel API need to be properly patched as well (otherwise all old cryptsetup version will not work anyway).

Thanks for you efforts @philm. Problem solved ,was a bad(?) download...The update did not download all needed packages...Since my first message I tried an update via the tty terminal which downloaded the missing packages(one of them was the new systemd and the 4.4 kernel).

Post by: philm on 21. February 2016, 13:04:26
Seems I was fast enough to avoid more damage:

@philm: cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 fixes the problem. We should still keep an eye on other packages which might potentially be affected by the kernel update.
Code: [Select]
$ pacman -Qi cryptsetup | grep -i version
Version                  : 1.7.0-1.1
$ uname -r
4.1.18-1-vd

Btw, my luks partition was encrypted with an earlier version of cryptsetup (circa April 2015), but it works anyway.
Thanks!

That's because you changed the original file (logind.conf), probably to change some option (Hibernation,Suspend when Lid close etc..). So the system didn't overwrite your config file.
You may decide if keep your file or use the new one.
Anyway, doing nothing should use your modified config file.

Ah, I see now. I've just compared the two files and sure, I had modified suspend and lid close because I'm using a desktop, not a laptop.

The variables were changed through the xfce power management GUI, and the system boots and runs very well in both xfce and fluxbox DEs.
The pacnew file is now a backup for the modified conf, but with the original settings. Do you think there is any need for another conf file in another directory?  ???

Update seems to be ok on my main computer, no issues with Cinnamon, but on Openbox the update to compton seems to have introduced some annoying lag with fading windows, starting applications, etc. I'd be interested to hear other OB/compton users experience with it to see if it's something on my end, or some general issue that has to be waited out.

Users with LVM have been discussing this across forums since at least February 11th. You should keep abreast of those issues that affect your specific setup, especially if you have something that is different than general use.

In other words, point the finger at yourself and keep up to date.

Crap, after the update, I can't login into 3 of my computers so far. The system won't take the encryption key. I can't figure out how to fix this by the link in Philm's reply. I'm not updating any more computers until we figure out what's going on. I tried to fall back to kernel 3.19, and even 3.14, and it didn't work. This is a major problem as all of my computers, including the one at work are encrypted. How can they screw up people's computer like this? It says to update to kernel 4.5, in the link: https://github.com/smuellerDD/libkcapi/commit/1d6c3b1b540caea784a95b1ca6e2cf38c174f585
the problem is that I can't even log in in order to change it to kernel 4.5.
Please  give more detail as to how to fix this.  :-[

@varikonniemi Which edition are you using?
It will be best to remove the old /etc/skel completely and then install the new settings package. In the future it will be updated without problem.
So if you have Xfce, you would do this:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -rf /etc/skeland then
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S manjaro-xfce-settings
Or if you use another edition replace <xfce> with what you have. But careful! Not all community editions settings are available as packages, yet!
This will install manjaro-base-skel automatically as a dependency and bring your skel folder up-to-date.
So when you would create a new user sometime in the future, it will be level with manjaro development :)

You will get it, you need to cool down. Everything will work! You'll get your computers back! :) Do you remember, you managed to set up encryption yourself without much help.
Instructions:
1. You need to boot with a live CD
2. you need to install the package downgrade
3. you need to unlock your encrypted root partition https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Device_encryption#Unlocking.2FMapping_LUKS_partitions_with_the_device_mapper
3. you need to mount your root partition https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root#Partition.28s.29_mount
4. you need to chroot into your root partition https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root#Using_chroot
5. you run downgrade linux41
6. you run update-grub

@eugen-b,

Thanks for getting back to me, as I'm in the state of panic now! Not only this update screwed several of my computers, but it also destroyed my wife's computer. So I'm really in a big trouble now! I installed encryption through the installer, and not manually. I'm not a technical guy, and primarily a GUI user, and that's why I'd chosen Manjaro, because your don't have to be a computer guru to use it.

In any case,  I have the Manjaro KDE 15.12 on a stick, that I can boot into it, but I don't see how to install the package downgrade. So how can I install the downgrade package?

Manjaro is a dangerous beast, it seems easy to run, but can easily break due to its rolling nature. You always need to have a strategy for the case that it breaks.

I encrypted the HDD on my laptop when I installed Manjaro a year ago. Luckily for me, I recently updated the kernel to 4.5, so the upgrade didn't affect my setup. In short, I've had no issues. Thanks again Phil and Co.  :)

Manjaro is a dangerous beast, it seems easy to run, but can easily break due to its rolling nature. You always need to have a strategy for the case that it breaks.

This should not be the case - the 'stable' branch should not break!

However - what this illustrates (once again) is that more people need to run on the testing branch and actually TEST things. The Manjaro team is small and (even if it wasn't) they can't hope to test every package against every configuration.

If you are running a slightly offbeat configuration, or have multiple PCs, it's in your interest to run at least one on the testing or unstable branches to spot these issues early.

Edit: I should say that I do agree on having a recovery strategy for any encrypted device. If something does break (whether your own fault or a bug) you're SOL otherwise.

Yeah, and it‘s so easy to have another partition with a testing Manjaro system on it. You would update it before your productive system. You don‘t need to have a second machine for that.

Update on the encryption thingy. Well, if you have encrypted your system with cryptsetup 1.7.0-1 or earlier, you will still have a problem, as in the kernel doesn't support the old API anymore. So the only option for you is to keep the old kernel, until upstream has fixed that. Simply don't encrypt your HDDs :P
Are you serious? I don't like the sticking tongue here. You don't want us to encrypt our devices? Are you working for the government?

Thanks for the manual for repairing though, but i exepected better form Manjaro.

No success.
The instruction says: # cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/<partition name> <device-mapper name>

Zenny422, I have this exact same problem with no Dropbox icon on my KDE panel.  I noticed it this morning before updating from stable repositories, and the problem persists after updating.  I also terminated Dropbox (which was running in the background) and tried to start it from the cli, and it said it was Killed.

You'll need to find out what other package besides oxygen-icons installed those icons and remove it, or use the force option when installing oxygen-icons.

@fredhoud: what is so confusing on going by the book? Here is the explanation in details:

How to unlock an encrypted drive

Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/<partition name> <device-mapper name>

Enter any LUKS passphrase: <password>
key slot 0 unlocked.
Command successful.

# means you're logged in as root. Therefore just type su followed by your root password.

Usually the device mapped name is descriptive of the function of the partition that is mapped, example:

Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sdaX root
For example if your partition is sda1 then it would be:

Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda1 root
Once opened, the root partition device address would be /dev/mapper/root instead of the partition (e.g. /dev/sdaX).
Now you have to mount it:

Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
The mounted blockdevice can then be used like any other partition. Once done, closing the device locks it again

Code: [Select]
# umount /mnt
# cryptsetup close root

You find a lot of guides for this in the net (http://askubuntu.com/questions/63594/mount-encrypted-volumes-from-command-line) ...

@ AJSly,
You have come to my resue several times in the past few years, and I'm geratful to your help and everyone else involved. Could you tell me what is the commandd that I need to type. the luks key is set on /dev/sda2 by defualt when you use the installer to encrypt the hard drive during the initial installation. I have successfully been able to change the encryption key by this command:
sudo cryptsetup luksAddKey /dev/sda2
Or, sudo cryptsetup luksRemoveKey /dev/sda2
I can only get to a terminal using the Manjaro 15.12 usb stick.
Could you tell me what do I need to type to delete the luks key. I'm following the installation with no success.

Hi! New to the forums - took me about 10 or something tries to register here (that captcha is unreal :S).

I use encryption. Before the update I edited the /etc/pacman.conf file and added "linux" after the IgnorePkg (IgnorePkg   = linux). Because I knew if my kernel gets updated to 4.1.18, I'm fucked (had this issue on Antergos - lts kernel update).

As I understand 4.1.17 isn't supported anymore. My question is, what should I do now? is it okay if I remove the kernel from the ignore list of pacman and let it to update itself? is the bug fixed now?

Essentially I don't want to have regular kernel updates - i just want to have a fairly recent kernel that works and is supported for quite a while and just stick with it. i also don't want to have the newest kernel, cause that one broke my wifi. Had an interesting situation on Antergos - couldn't use the 4.4.2. kernel, cause that broke my wifi and couln't use the lts kernel (.18), cause that broke my cryptsetup.

Some background:

Code: [Select]
$ uname -r
4.1.17-1-MANJARO

Code: [Select]
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: n/a
Distributor ID: ManjaroLinux
Description: Manjaro Linux
Release: 15.12
Codename: Capella

Code: [Select]

* sidenote, geesus christ dudes - why all the hurdles to just register and post on this forum - first, third and whatever letters of manjaro. why?? :SS

Hello and welcome, heyne001!
The hurdle to register prevent us from spammers.
Good that you took measures before the update!
You need now a newer version of cryptsetup which resolves the issue:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U http://repo.manjaro.org.uk/pool/overlay/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xzThen you should be able to update the kernel.
PS: You can also install kernel 4.4 which isn't affected by the issue.

Everything went great for me.  I made the jump to all SSD for OS drives with built in device enabled encryption, specifically to avoid the performance hit and to avoid any issues created by LUKS.  I tend to use truecrypt containers for data I want to safeguard, but outside of my home folder which is on the primary OS drive I only really have to use this for protecting backup images.

Smooth update on my system. I have no idea how to set up encryption so fixing my system if something were to break would make me panic. Well, maybe someday I will learn, I am keen to. Manjaro team has taken a lot of heat over this encryption issue, I can understand users panicking over a suddenly broken system, especially if one is a total noob like me. But what I can't understand is how Phil and everyone else involved, devote themselves to a project they're running as a hobby, as something in their spare time, without charging a penny.

Also reporting the encryption LVM issue (4.18 kernel) was solved thanks to the advice to chroot in via a LiveCD and update to kernel 4.4.2 or greater using pacman.  This was useful to remember how to chroot  (https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Restore_the_GRUB_Bootloader)
.
Update seems to be ok on my main computer, no issues with Cinnamon, but on Openbox the update to compton seems to have introduced some annoying lag with fading windows, starting applications, etc. I'd be interested to hear other OB/compton users experience with it to see if it's something on my end, or some general issue that has to be waited out.
Also running Openbox and have noticed the same thing, but I am not too fussed about this.

Many thanks too all that have worked to make this distro what it is too.

Thanks, AJ.  Re-installing worked -- had to remove Dropbox config files, but I rebooted and the icon loaded.

I spoke too soon, AJ.

After rebooting and finding that the Dropbox icon had properly loaded, I left the house for a few hours while letting Dropbox index.  When I returned home, the icon had disappeared.  So... back to the drawing board....

Smooth update on my system, many thanks Manjaro Team (90 updates)  :)


One small query perhaps someone can answer for me?
Every time I update there is a warning: /etc/systemd/logind.conf is installed as /etc/systemd/logind.conf.pacnew
Is this a problem, and if so, how do I change this safely?
Thanks in advance!

I spoke too soon. Update doesn't work. I get this. How do I fix it? I figured it out finally on my own. That last update is clearly faulty because it wouldn't remove the libdcadec.so.0 file and replace it with the new updated one which is why it wouldn't allow anything to be updated. I deleted the libdcadec.so.0 file and did the update. I rebooted the computer and checked for updates and it says my system is up to date.

The update was OK.
I have only one issue: I have energy setup: when I do nothing, then the monitor goes off after X minutes.
My desktop is not responding after waking up the monitor. It is only for kernel 4.4 or 4.5, but 4.3 works.
So it is a kernel bug? How to raise it?

I did not care much about the files so I used --force option. Also the broken espeak signature problem is back again so i used --ignore espeak to deal with that. Otherwise everything went fine.

Thanks to Phil and the other gurus. Smooth update.

Regarding those poor security and privacy minded souls for getting thrown out of your encrypted partitions:

1 You are sensible people who take privacy and security that serious!
2 The kernel should not fubar your encryption (it should be one of those things that "just work" because people need  to get comfortable with encryption IMHO).
3. Phil and other members of the team have provided the solution's - so it is fixable.

Then the human factor strikes.
I used to regard "chroot" as rocket science - so when people helpfully told me to chroot into the system with a live CD - I blacked out  :-[
That was guru stuff beyond my simple aspirations of running an alternative to Windows etc etc.

Complicated words like mount did not make it better either.

I ran Linux for years and managed to avoid that stuff.

Then I decided to grab the bull by the horns and make myself a live CD (http://bjoernvold.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3827) and finally learn how to rescue systems.

In general the rule is to use the Live CD from the system you are using (but I wanted one to rescue all  ;D )
...
I then made it boot on a VM (Virtualbox) and tested it out - and I can assure you it works just like phil and other team members (and the wiki) have described.

I just chrooted into my Manjaro OpenRC with the SystemrescueCD   and updated Manjaro with pacman.

It is easy :)

I just used the terminal in SystemrescueCD and did a:
Code: [Select]
fdisk -l
This showed me 4 partitions including swap (we don't need to mount swap).
They looked like this:
Code: [Select]
/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2
/dev/sda3
/dev/sda4
To just get exact information about the partitions I did a:
Code: [Select]
fsarchiver probe simple(It is all there in the Arch wiki)/ dev/sda2 was swap; so I will forget about that one.

Then I made mount directories for all of them (except swap):
Code: [Select]
mkdir /mnt/sda1
mkdir /mnt/sda3
mkdir /mnt/sda4
Then I did a:
Code: [Select]
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2
mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/sda4
Time to enter the Manjaro system
Code: [Select]
cd /mnt/sda1And here I did a:
Code: [Select]
mount proc proc proc/It is in the Arch wiki so monkey see and monkey do ;)
The rest of the arch wiki is boring so I just moved on to the dreaded chroot part:
Code: [Select]
chroot /mnt/sda3 /bin bash(How I know that /dev/sda3 is the one to chroot into? It is the only place where the command will work  ;D as in; it cannot find bash in the other ones)
And there I simply ran a
Code: [Select]
pacman -SyuHere you can install kernel 4.4 to avoid the encryption problem or do what the gurus have recommended.
To jump out of the (chrooted) Manjaro environment I just do a CTRL +D.

This is all explained better by others and in the Arch wiki - but in case you share some of my quirky logics maybe this can help too. :D

...and as a bonus I learned how to rescue Windows systems (http://bjoernvold.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3919#p22042) too...

@viking60, chroot is not much of a problem when you did it once, but to chroot an encrypted root partition is more difficult. Different encryption tools add to the difficulty, the user needs to know his setup. Therefore if you are not comfortable with it, don't encrypt your root partition, but only your home partition. Nothing speaks against the second, much speaks in favour of it.

Hi,

I'm trying to get it fixed for around 5 hours now. Chroot is not working for me. I'm giving up.

I'm extremely disappointed. You knew about those issues before releasing the update. This is unprofessional, I'm really sorry to say that.

I've got Manjaro since the end of 2011, but it's time to go now. Your advice: "Don't encrypt your HDDs" is just a bad joke. 

Thanks for all the good work, but that mistake is too big. Maybe later one time, but for now, I have to say goodbye to Manjaro.




Warning for users with encrypted root-partitions

All users using luks-encryption on their root-partition should not update to these kernels: 3.10.97, 3.14.61, 3.18.27, 4.1.18, 4.3.6, 4.4.2.
Earlier posted kernels affected by this: 3.13.11.34, 3.19.8.34, 4.2.8.3, 4.5-rc1
Kernels not affected by this: 3.12.54, 4.3.6, 4.4.2, 4.5-rc4

You will face followed error message:
Code: [Select]
Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info)
More info about this here (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112631), here (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48230) and here (https://lwn.net/Articles/676552/). Also read this (https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31031.0).



How-to fix
  • You need to boot with a working live-cd (http://manjaro.github.io/download/)
  • unlock (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Device_encryption#Unlocking.2FMapping_LUKS_partitions_with_the_device_mapper) your encrypted root partition
  • mount (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root#Partition.28s.29_mount) your root partition
  • chroot (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root#Using_chroot) into your root partition
  • update your system to get the fixed cryptsetup package
  • run cryptsetup close root (as described in the second step)
  • reboot without live-cd
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U http://repo.manjaro.org.uk/pool/overlay/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz
If pacman complains about signatures try with:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz

Makes sense. The users need to know their setup (chroot into Centos/Fedora is not that straight forward).

I will now chroot into a luks encrypted Manjaro of course....

@gre999 If I get confused on a higher level I will share my findings....

This looks pretty straight forward though:

chroot into your existing Manjaro installation with example a working live-cd.

Smooth update without issues here. The no-mouse-cursor problem with Intel-graphics under Xfce persists, but switching off auto-login still works around the problem for me. After manual login, the mouse cursor  shows and everything is fine.

No font-problems here either, although I`m German. Lots of Umlauts (Ü,Ö,Ä) and Cantarell font, but no issues.

I have to say, I`m extremely impressed how the Manjaro-team and philm is handling the latest issues with this update. Very friendly, fast and helpful, even offering IRC-channel support for newbies, WOW! Truly impressive. Thank you for this amazing distribution and all the work and devotion you put into this for us, for free.

Everything went great for me.  I made the jump to all SSD for OS drives with built in device enabled encryption, specifically to avoid the performance hit and to avoid any issues created by LUKS.  I tend to use truecrypt containers for data I want to safeguard, but outside of my home folder which is on the primary OS drive I only really have to use this for protecting backup images.
Trust 'automatic' hardware encryption only as far as you can spit: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/10/20/western_digital_bad_hard_drive_encryption/

Root is mounted. Also is this even a right method to even install a newer kernel? Stupid question, but I really am not sure. I have always avoided doing anything with kernels.

Even if it says the kernel is installed already, I am unable to boot into it.

That set of messages normally points towards a drive failure - check your cables and back up any important data. It's a bit weird why it should show up with one kernel and not another, though... perhaps different buffering or flushing methods?

Okay, VICTORY (at least so far)

Managed to install the latest kernel (45 rc) and it's working. Also tried 44, but couldn't log in - first there was a black screen and then a white screen saying that something went wrong (rly).

For all still struggling, maybe the following helps. This is what I did once in the live system and open terminal:

Code: [Select]
# su
Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root
Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
These are optional - if you want to install a new kernel:
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev

Okay, VICTORY (at least so far)

Managed to install the latest kernel (45 rc) and it's working. Also tried 44, but couldn't log in - first there was a black screen and then a white screen saying that something went wrong (rly).

For all still struggling, maybe the following helps. This is what I did once in the live system and open terminal:

Code: [Select]
# su
Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root
Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
These are optional - if you want to install a new kernel:
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
# mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys

Code: [Select]
# chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Install the updated cryptsetup package and/or linux45
Code: [Select]
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz
Code: [Select]
pacman -S linux45

Kudos! Three absolutely marvelous post! Thank you, heyne001!

Maybe just one addition:
Code: [Select]
# cp /etc/resolv.conf etc/resolv.confbefore running chroot command.

Hey, sorry that I'm a little sarcastic with the cryptsetup issue. People who faced it want to blame someone. Sure, your world breaks down as you think I'll never manage to get back to my data as I had encrypted it. Sure, you had your choices to do so. Maybe we made it to easy on the other hand to do so.

Anyway, if you encrypt something you should at least be able to decrypt it on your own. If you're not able to do that, then don't encrypt your stuff. I'm from the IT business. So I deal a lot with customers and people not able to manage their systems. You're stressed and pissed at the same time.

Everybody struggles. At most the guys over at Archlinux. There it slipped also. Even there was a critical bug (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48230) open. If you read it thru you might find the same sarcastic person who guided them thru the mess.

People don't realize that we do this for fun and can stop whenever we want to. We do Manjaro for our own. We open it up for you guys to share. Take or leave it. No warranties at all. You have to take care of your data yourself. We never pointed you to update your system. Bad stuff can always happen.

Some crews need days to figure stuff out, other do it in minutes if they have the right connections. You can search our forum and you may find some hints about some 3.19er kernel having this issue. Also in unstable branch some dude posted about it even before it was known to others.

Upstream on the other hand knew about it since December last year. A bad backport happend. So what. We are humans. After having found a solution I contacted somebody with the problem and some little brain and the will to try stuff out. You can't loose your data if you know a little about IT. At least you shouldn't format stuff for some reason. After confirmation it had worked I rolled the fix out to all branches.

Now that it was fixed on some servers some people still got updates from the outdated mirrors. Again, you have to check your own which mirror you want to use. Maybe the provider has some hardware issue or syncs not so often than other mirrors. To avoid that, we even pointed to a mirror having the fixed package already. Then users complained about the signature file of pacman. So we updated  our guide accordingly.

So all in all I wasted a whole day to fix this issue I even didn't produce. I just followed upstream. Good, I might have not have to update our stable branch, but if everybody is pushing for the stupid GCC issue which enables some backdoor to your PC I pushed it and again the cryptsetup slipped for 2 hours thru, which is really a fast fix in IT. Again. So what. Blame the universe or anything you now think of.

Simply don't encrypt stuff if you don't know how to access it again if something like this exact situation occurs. You simply have to be mind open and willing to learn. Guys, remember: this issue was harmless!

The only issue I had with this update is the missing mouse pointer. Sometimes, in the login screen the mouse pointer would not appear.

After reading other users' concerns with a rolling release made me realize an update strategy or something like that.
Since each latest release is or cannot be guaranteed to be bug free for all users and for all configuration combinations, is it possible that one could opt to upgrade only to a pre-defined release set? Let me clarify this. If the latest release is, for example, the 9th update and my current system is at 7th update release, would it be possible to only update to the 8th release? This would allow users to upgrade slowly who are not into the bleeding edge of a rolling release update.

I hope there is an option to do this cause I don't want to go into the trouble as some have been into although, I never experienced an update that would break my system since I first installed Manjaro.

Thanks a lot to the Manjaro Team and community this has been a very pleasant move to Linux for me so far.

Some users might not realise how amazing it is to get a fix for an upstream issue so quickly. Instead of making Manjaro seem unprofessional it should reinforce the exact opposite view (e.g. Phil spending all day Sunday to fix an issue the same day it comes to light?).

We're also lucky to benefit from the excellent work Arch do - as a distro they are again incredibly responsive.

Not to pick on other OS, but, you may recall reported issues that some users had with a number of Window 10 updates bricking their PCs. The resolution took weeks (and I think some are still ongoing). That's Microsoft - a huge multinational corporation which has direct collaboration with hardware manufacturers.

Other users won't realise that there are have been vulnerable packages available to Ubuntu LTS users for _years_ - for example the Wordpress package in universe. Yeah, they don't guarantee security fixes to universe, but again, that's a large multinational company that should benefit from upstream work.

I'll come back to the points I made earlier: if you are reliant on a feature you need to have a recovery strategy in case is breaks (e.g. noone relies on only Firefox, they will have an alternate available), and if you are running multiple PCs you need to help test.

After this last upgrade, the only issue I have is that when trying to reboot/shutdown, the system hangs with an error message (see attachment) for a while (maybe 30 seconds, I'm not exactly sure).

This happens with the 4.4.2 kernel, but not with 4.1.18.

I am having a very similar issue after the latest update (see attachment).  The system hangs with kernel 4.4.2 and 4.1.18. I havent had this error before.

Thanks man!

Just trying to help other newbies like me as I learn myself.

Also, 4.1.18 kernel works for me now as well. Maybe it's because I reinstalled it earlier or did something else - can't really remember, as I messed around quite a bit.

Anyway, thanx to the Manjaro support crew for the instructions/updates and keeping its users informed. I have to say I've really learned a lot because of this little hiccup. Before that I didn't know how to chroot into my system like that. Now I know.

I've done a web search for "boot error ata1.00: exception Emask 0x40 SAct 0x0 SErr 0xc0800 action 0x6" since this is a line you both have in your pictures. There are some hits, seem to be an issue with Western Digital HDD under heavy load [added text in italics] in some of them, but needs more reading to have a more complete picture.
Edit: Try adding 'acpi=off noapic' to the kernel parameters. Source (but a bit old): https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=462425#c80
Edit2: Could be also a bad or badly connected SATA cable, but unlikely in two cases.
Edit3: you could try running sudo fsck -a /dev/sdX with X being a or b, the name of your drive.
Edit4: Could be a dead SATA port - change the cable to the other port.

@heyne001, kernel 4.1.18 works for you now because you updated cryptsetup, I guess.

after downloading for one rather long time ...and the following install ..(have almost dial up type speeds atm..so not impressed seeing such a big update.
I ended up with a warning about a corrupted package or PGP signature from Thorsten Topper ( regional extras on letters unavailable)

I believe the package was called "Confuse"   
it asked if id like to delete which i did ..but that then said nothing had been updated... 

I have a problem from a previous update with Tint2 crashing...so i cant open browser / terminall etc  without it all crashing (segfault) (hence unable to post actual wording)..which is supposedly corrected with todays update ..now i dont have it ..and may have to go through hours of downloading and get another failed update..

can you reply re when the packages is no longer corrupted or signature is fixed

I normally run the 4.4 kernel, but also keep 4.1 (or whatever is LTS at the time) on my system as a backup. I did the upgrade today, so the latest version of cryptsetup that fixes the encryption bug was already in the stable repo. So I have cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 on my system.

Rebooting into the 4.4 kernel worked fine. But if I try to boot into 4.1 I get the notorious error, "Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info)."

Isn't cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 supposed to fix this? Shouldn't I be able to boot into 4.1 also?

I had the same issue with cryptsetup and Kernel 4.18. Updated before the new cryptsetup version was provided. Thanks to the very quick response to this issue by Phillip and his guideline to fix it, i could solve it myself, even i didn't used Chroot and mounting drives from the terminal before. Also eugen-b's guide to downgrade the kernel version (or install a new) worked fine!

Now everything works perfectly again :)

Thank you very much Manjaro Team for such a great and fast support!

I'm happy to announce our nineth update of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

With this we updated firefox, thunderbird, glibc, haskell, libreoffice, palemoon, lumina-desktop, arc-themes, manjaro-tools, manjaro-profile-settings, gnome, pamac, deepin, video-intel, packagekit, wine, systemd and haskell. This brings also new KDE packages and new kernel version. Remember that linux43 is now 'end of life' tagged!

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Sat Feb 20 10:20:00 CET 2016.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don't notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our mailing list (https://lists.manjaro.org/pipermail/manjaro-packages/).

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

It seems as if the latest systemd-update (3 packages) that I have received today, has fixed the problem mentioned here (https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31356.msg258228#msg258228). Does anybody know what has been updated exactly?

Okay, VICTORY (at least so far)

Managed to install the latest kernel (45 rc) and it's working. Also tried 44, but couldn't log in - first there was a black screen and then a white screen saying that something went wrong (rly).

For all still struggling, maybe the following helps. This is what I did once in the live system and open terminal:

Code: [Select]
# su
Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root
Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
These are optional - if you want to install a new kernel:
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
# mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys

Code: [Select]
# chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Install the updated cryptsetup package and/or linux45
Code: [Select]
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz
Code: [Select]
pacman -S linux45

Kudos! Three absolutely marvelous post! Thank you, heyne001!

Maybe just one addition:
Code: [Select]
# cp /etc/resolv.conf etc/resolv.confbefore running chroot command.

Thank you guys! Your posts helped me solving the luks-encryption-issue. ^^

For those who want to install another kernel instead, should mount "run" too:
Code: [Select]
# mount --bind /run /mnt/run
In my case the issue could only be solved by installing another kernel (4.4, old kernel was 4.1). Therefore I had to add the line above. Otherwise grub would post errors while mkinitcpio was running.

And if your computer/laptop/etc. uses UEFI, you should mount the efi partition, too:
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
To get detailed information about the partitions on your harddisk, this command is quite helpful:
Code: [Select]
lsblk -f
So you have to change the mount-point-names according to your partition-table.

I don't know if my last two points are really necessary, but it helped solving my problem. ^^
Well, one reason I moved from archlinux to manjaro was to avoid those downgrade-procedures(ok, first time on manjaro after six month old install, I am not angry or sth. ;-) ), but luckily there are well written 'step-by-step' guides in this forum.
So thanks again.

cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1 is my fixed package. cryptsetup-1.7.0-2 is the same, which was pushed by Arch-Upstream. It doesn't matter which package you have installed, at least it is with revision 1.1 or higher.

Yes they are. Countless of linux users can potentially find this info through search engines. Little bits like this could help hundreds if not thousands and it works like promotion for Manjaro too. Maybe some guy stumbles onto your post e.g. while searching for a solution for some issue maybe and then starts using this distribution. You never know. Maybe donates, maybe not. But it surely helps the community grow and get better.

My view is that if you know something, teach it to others. Even if it's something simple. Even if you get it wrong and it gets shot down, at least you still can learn from it.

The awesome thing about Manjaro is that you get all the good stuff from Arch (AUR, wiki, bleeding edge software), yet have a more stable system. Yes, bugs can slip through and they will, but it's the nature of a rolling release. There are still precautions one can take - disable kernel updating, install additional kernels, wait couple of days before updating and read this forum (which is awesome - I've been using Linux for couple of years now and this is the first linux forum I've signed up to) to see if the update can cause potential problems and deal with them beforehand etc.

Also, thanks to you too. Will add these bits to my linux notes - never know when they might come handy.

And last but not least thanks to Philip and others who are doing an awesome job with this distro.

Hello Forum,

at first thank you for Manjaro.
This update was a disaster. After ca. 3 hours I've got my Computer to work again, with the information out of this forum, read with a second Notebook with Xubuntu on it  ;).

So my findings/question:

The current cryptsetup does not work for me, all kernels didn't decrypt my harddrive. I did the update on monday, at a time the error with was already known and the new cryptsetup was distributed.

I needed to update the kernel to linux44, all the other kernels do not work until now.

It is possible, that OpenRC is the reason, and we need a new cryptsetup-openrc, and until that is not the case, everybody with crypted disk, kernel < 4.4 and OpenRC will  shoot his/her computer off by updating?

I'm having an issue with the update.
There is a new version of "borg" package - 0.30.1-1. It's the back up app I use. This version has bug reported at arch (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48258?project=5). It is already resolved by new version - 0.30.1-2. There was some error in a package stuff, not the app.

Looks like no back ups till next manjaro update. ;D I'll downgrade this package for now.

Hi,

I got an issue with this update, that I was able to fix, and that was not one already mentioned.

I'm using KDE, 4.4 kernel, installed Manjaro (stable) from a net install, NOT using encryption. The update concerned only few packages, maybe 10.

1st question : after rebooting, the system booted correctly, but was unable to launch sddm and was flickering badly, even when I changed tty to log in, I saw flickers of the error messages from tty1. dmesg showed me that sddm had segfaulted, but I didn't recall having updated it... I fixed that, after coming here to see if anyone had the problem, by downgrading. I mean I did a 'pacman -Syy' the a 'pacman -Suu', rebooted and all went fine.

2nd question : I'm not using encryption (at least I didn't recall having set it up), but cryptsetup (the nemesis of some users here) was one of the packages updated then downgraded. Do I need that if I don't encrypt my disks ? Could it be responsible for the issue anyway ?

3rd and last question (probably stupid) : I saw Philm said cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1 or 1.7.0-2 are the fixes, but I have 1.7.0-1 installed, and no update available. Did I fucked something ? or maybe missed something in the discussion ?

Otherwise, everything is fine, and thanks for the efforts

Apo

This one really gave this cli handicapped ole man a start. I wish to show my appreciation to all who tried to
help those in my boat. I especially want to take this time to thank "the team" for all the hard work on Manjaro.
A little snafu once in a while is good to make us not take for granted the good works from those who make
it all possible. Now I think I'll put some medicine on my sore fingers(from typing) and take a nap.
Thanks again

Is that the package you have installed? You could also try updating (again) to see if 1.7.0-2 is available.
Yes, I said in my original post, to which you responded, that I have 1.7.0-1.1 installed.

To repeat what I already said to begin with: I'm using kernel 4.4. I did the update while running on kernel 4.4. I got the latest version of that kernel (4.4.2-1) and at the same time my system updated to cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1. When I boot using kernel 4.4 my system is fine. But if I boot with kernel 4.1 (which I keep as a backup option on my system, since it's an LTS kernel) I get the error "Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info)."

I thought 1.7.0-1.1 was supposed to fix the issue and that I should be able to boot with kernel 4.1. Philm's instructions in the second post of this thread only say that you need 1.7.0-1.1 to fix the issue. Is that wrong? Is there something else I need to do? Is there no way to get kernel 4.1 to work and you also have to have a newer kernel? The instructions don't say that.

1.7.0-2 is not available yet on my system, it must be in testing or unstable.

[Edit: Just for the heck of it, I pulled 1.7.0-2 from the unstable repo. Same result. I can boot with kernel 4.4, but not 4.1.]

[Edit 2: Okay, uninstalling and reinstalling 4.1 fixed the problem. I don't know why, since in the update process cryptsetup was upgraded first, before the kernel, so it seems like anything that 4.1 had to build against from the new cryptsetup should have already been there. But this is really beyond my knowledge of Linux to explain.]

Yes, I said in my original post, to which you responded, that I have 1.7.0-1.1 installed.

Actually, you said:

I did the upgrade today, so the latest version of cryptsetup that fixes the encryption bug was already in the stable repo. So I have cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 on my system.

You didn't specifically say you had checked the package version, and I interpreted what you said as that you assumed the package version was current. You might think verifying these things is trite, but after you do any sort of support for any length of time you learn that making assumptions about what users mean is a dangerous thing. Making sure you get unambiguous verification avoids hella problems.

Heard the anecdote about tech support asking whether the non-functioning device is actually plugged in and turned on? Experienced users will say "hang on, I'll double check". Inexperienced users will say "of course it is! That would be stupid!" And how many times is the thing not plugged in and turned on? More than you'd think.

ANYHOW...

Not sure why you had to reinstall the kernel - it doesn't appear anyone else has had to do that, unless they're not reporting it (or just installed a newer kernel to get back up-and-running).

Like I said, the site is a joke and I don't see anything for linux. The main problem is forced-pairing and that is a unifying receiver issue not specific to any product. After reading their forums it seems one needs a Winblows box to install the unifying software and firmware.exe to run the update from the former. Shame, shame, shame, ding, ding, ding.

Sadly, I had the similar situation, and despite all the help from everyone, had to reformat, and start all over again. A big lesson learned though. Wait a little before updating and READ the update reports which I didn't do!

Thanks fredhoud, I tried yesterday during 2 hours but I had other things to do, so I though I am gona wait for Manjaro KDE 16.03 and do a fresh install. Next time I'll wait a week before doing an update. Sad I did not read the news this time before upgrading. Luckily it's only my laptop for home and not my PC at work. I am running Kubuntu 15.10 at work because I got a skylake CPU and the manjaro installation kernel doesn't boot up automatically. So that's an other reason why I wait for 16.03 at work.

Surprisingly many others did succeed with the chroot commands. I don't know what setup was different for them.

The problem is people do not educate themselves enough to use linux. Reading the output of your commands and familiarity with basic concepts help. Arch wiki is an excellent resource for more advanced topics. You can find information on LUKS and LVM there. Admittedly the information is a bit dry and requires perseverance. Just the nature of the beast. For now I recommend following my advice on the previous post instead of despairing.

@jinformatique,

I did a fresh install on 4 of my computers with KDE 15.12, and updated the system (encrypted via installer), but to be on the safe side I installed kernel 4.2, and 4.5 as a backup, and they all working perfectly. No issues what so ever. I guess what I'm saying is that you don't have to wait for 16.03, due to the fact that it's a rolling version. This was a hard concept for me to understand as well when I got into Manjaro a little more than a year ago. One more big lesson I learned and that is DON'T EVER install "Grub-Customizer". It got me in big trouble!

So how could I mount root and boot properly to chroot and install the new kernet?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try this:

Code: [Select]
# su

# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root

# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/ManjaroVG-ManjaroRoot /mnt

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
# mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
# mount --bind /run /mnt/run

make a backup of /mnt/etc/resolv.conf; dont't know if this is necessary, but better safe than sorry?  ;)
and then:
Code: [Select]
# cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf


# chroot /mnt /bin/bash

That worked in my case.  O:-)

Have you gotten so far you then can run pacman -Syu and/or install another kernel.  :)

So... does anyone have any idea what to do about the mouse jack (https://threatpost.com/mousejack-attacks-abuse-vulnerable-wireless-keyboard-mouse-dongles/116402/)? Logitech site is a joke and I've found nothing on LKML

Reading that article:

Quote
More than half of the mice are not able to be updated and will not be patched.

which is just great.

You might try Windows in a virtual machine - that has worked for me in the past with other Windows-only device updates. No need to buy anything, use the MS browser testing images: https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ (worth remembering: http://modern.ie/)

@LA-MJ
I checked the arch wiki. I tried yesterday during 2 hours. I was able to mount my root volume but I did not get the part where to mount the boot and chroot is new to me. I'm a Kubuntu user since 2006 and switched to Manjaro a year ago. I choosed it because there is a GUI to install it, it's rolling release, latest software all the time and KDE. I have a 2 yo kid and don't have so much time anymore to play with debugging stuff. I am happy to use it for what I have to do that's all.

@mmtm
THANKS man, that worked like a charm!! I am back in my desktop. Yeayy.
At the end I did:
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux44
reboot
And all was back to normal.

@fredhoud
Ok for the `Grub-Customizer` tip, I'll never touch it.

Thanks to the manjaro team for this great distro with so much effort put in there.

Yes, I said in my original post, to which you responded, that I have 1.7.0-1.1 installed.

Actually, you said:

I did the upgrade today, so the latest version of cryptsetup that fixes the encryption bug was already in the stable repo. So I have cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 on my system.

You didn't specifically say you had checked the package version, and I interpreted what you said as that you assumed the package version was current. You might think verifying these things is trite, but after you do any sort of support for any length of time you learn that making assumptions about what users mean is a dangerous thing. Making sure you get unambiguous verification avoids hella problems.

Heard the anecdote about tech support asking whether the non-functioning device is actually plugged in and turned on? Experienced users will say "hang on, I'll double check". Inexperienced users will say "of course it is! That would be stupid!" And how many times is the thing not plugged in and turned on? More than you'd think.

Honsetly, I don't know how "I have cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 on my system" could mean anything other than I have cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1.

I also explained that I did the upgrade a couple days after the updated version of cryptsetup went into the repo, so I indicated that I knew what was in the repo when. In other words, I explained not once but twice that I had 1.7.0-1.1 on my system. You really have to bend over backwards to almost deliberately misread my post to see it the way you claim you did.

Also, all you said in your reply to my initial post was, "Is that the package you have installed? You could also try updating (again) to see if 1.7.0-2 is available." You didn't say, "Did you check the package version or are you just assuming you have it because you did the upgrade?" It really seems like you didn't read my post closely, assumed I didn't know what I was doing, didn't actually have an answer to my question, and weren't being careful with taking time with the wording of your own post.

This is a forum, not tech support. My experience with countless years in Linux forums is that lots of people respond to posts without really reading them and ask questions that are answered in the post; they do this more because they like to see themselves as helpful, than because they have any relevant input. That happens constantly. I don't know how often I have to repeat exactly what I already said, I can't keep track anymore. So rather than lecturing me and making assumptions about how experienced I am with Linux, you might just say, "sorry, I misunderstood your post" or "I should have been more clear what I was asking."

When I updated libreoffice-fresh to 5.1 the font rendering was different and not in a good way. Times New Roman fonts for example were rendering like they did on my windows machine (at certain magnification they letters would get quite bold while the italics stayed thin). In general the rendering for all the fonts was less pleasant and also scrolling through the document was slower (seemed like the mouse had a smaller scroll interval and I did not find the setting to change it).

So I downgraded it back to 5.0.4.2.

Okay, VICTORY (at least so far)

Managed to install the latest kernel (45 rc) and it's working. Also tried 44, but couldn't log in - first there was a black screen and then a white screen saying that something went wrong (rly).

For all still struggling, maybe the following helps. This is what I did once in the live system and open terminal:

Code: [Select]
# su
Code: [Select]
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root
Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
These are optional - if you want to install a new kernel:
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
# mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys

Code: [Select]
# chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Install the updated cryptsetup package and/or linux45
Code: [Select]
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cryptsetup-1.7.0-1.1-$(uname -m).pkg.tar.xz
Code: [Select]
pacman -S linux45

I had never used chroot before, so at the beggining it was difficult for me to follow the instructions from the Arch wiki. But this made it really easy and I could finally install a new kernel, everything is working back again! No system reinstalling, no starting all over again... Thank you so much!! And thaks to the team and everyone for making such a wonderful community.

@heyne001: also I want to thank you! Your posting made dealing with the kernel / cryptset issue a lot easier.  ;D I used to copy a lot from it when trying to find the right kernel.

Clean install issue:

And an information for all who care: new users doing a clean install from the latest live cd [1][2] will still run into the problem with the first innocent system update (only if they have chosen to encrypt their system, off course), With the update they get  kernel 4.1.18, cryptsetup 1.7.0-1.1 and a system that cannot decrypt their freshly set up root partition and therefore will not boot. I do not think that many of them will continue with manjaro.

I mean.. how does it look like to a new user? You install from CD, you thankfully use the option to encrypt your system, you make the first recommendable update (because there are newer versions of lotsa stuff than were on the cd) and voila' your system will not boot anymore. If you know nothing else about manjaro then this won't  give you the right impression of a distribution you can trust.

I don't have the knowledge to tell you what would be the right way of handling this. I don't know what bells and whistles exist that could prevent the problem.  Perhaps make the live-cds step over to linux44. With the combination

- Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.4.2-1-MANJARO
- cryptsetup-1.7.0-2-x86_64 (obtained via downgrade)

I experience no problems so far. But iirc also linux41 is LTS and therefore it would be nice if also for 41 this issue could be solved.

And a short suggestion for the managment of this issue...

If you want to know what helped the most, it was the posting of heyne001. Concrete advices, the right amount of explanation and easy to follow instructions. In a crisis situation where one has to repair his system from outside the comfort zone (like from a live cd which does not reflect your normal customized working environment at all) this has been exactly what was needed. With copy & paste I just needed to change the drive and could focus on the problem.
This posting, maybe with the resolv.conf addition,  should have been put sticky  somewhere even easier to find (search engines - startpage.com, duckduckgo, google - still do not find it for me, even when I am very precisely stating what I am looking for)..

What I am still missing is a list of kernel-cryptsetup combinations that are *tested* to be working ok now.  I might have had just bad luck, but I had to test some combinations until my old system was able to boot again and then it did feel unstable (also a reason for the clean install).

Moreover I wondered which other options there might have been. I myself was most unsuccessful when downgrading kernel and cryptsetup, but I think this also might have been a possibility. Then I wondered if one could not have simply removed the encryption of the root drive? I did not consider that, but it might have been possible.
 
the footnotes:
[1] I tried xfce flavor and the kernel was 4.1.15
[2] I decided for a clean new install yesterday. My now old manjaro install was xfce installed as a second de on top of a manjaro kde installation. It had become a bit bloated and often kept me wondering which kde components could be safely removed and which I would need for the kde programs that I run... It had some minor issues as well... After having played a lot to find a working kernel cryptsetup combination I did not feel comfortable with the result and therefore went for a new start.

Hi,

I'm running Manjaro since July last year on my main notebook - everything was fine.
Before I had ~2-3 years Linux Mint Debian on the former notebook, as I do love the idea of rolling releases; but the frequency of update was very low.

Now I do have an mayor issue and I have no clue, how to solve that.
I'm running the stable branch of Manjaro x64 Xfce and did an update on Saturday with Manjaro Update 2016-02-21 (stable) which now results in kernel 4.1.18-1-Manjaro x64.
I did not read the "Talk about this update" carefully, as I wrongly thought that I did do that update already the weekend before  :(
Next time I do need to be more careful on that.
On Sunday I did reboot and surprise --> no success. :o
I do have encrypted the whole disk and now run into the trouble during boot-up:
   Failed to setup dm_crypt ...
   Check that the kernel supports aes_xts_plain64 cipher.
I tried the fix_tutorial several times - but unfortunately without success.
Booting from Live-CD, opening a terminal (no further program is started) ...

pacman -S linux45

but with the last command I got a hell of error messages (I did not log that) - I do have the impression this "linux45" is not on the servers.

Any tip?
I do not have experience with this deep stuff of kernel, cryptsetup and pacman topics - as I'm much much more a user of Manjaro.
And up to now was pretty happy.
But now I have no clue to come out of that. ???

do you have any clue what is wrong with my way (understanding) of just updating cryptsetup version?
why did I got the error messages?

I do fear a bit, that with performing a bigger step (kernel update) I might have even more trouble (as I never did such stuff before).

It depends on how your update kernel went. I f you have another working kernel in you Grub menu then you can boot with it. Chroot your system once again and run update-grub. After that you should be able to boot with kernel 4.1.18.

@eugen-b

I just did the simple update as performed automatically by manjaro --> no other kernel is available in grub  :(
that's also another learning I take with me, to have several kernel in grub, so that I can select one (I need to learn first how to do that)

On another testing notebook this is done automatically by that Linux distribution; but not on my main notebook by manjaro.

I wanted to go (if this is feasible, and others seem to be successful with that approach) for the minimal change and just do version upgrade of cryptsetup.
Any idea why this minimal invasive correction fails on my computer?

1. you forgot to mount all the subfolders
2. you need to umount all the subfolders first before /mnt/root

(you get several kernels in Grub automatically when installing an additional kernel, when booting choose Advanced Options and the entry with the kernel you want)

I just did the simple update as performed automatically by manjaro --> no other kernel is available in grub  :(
I this a dual boot?
If so, you'd very likely have to go to the other install and update-grub from there! ?

@oberon: no, I do have only manjaro on my main notebook; and all other PCs with Linux versions on them.

@eugen-b:
does that mean, that I have misunderstood the fix-tutorial from philm?

Quote
How-to fix
•You need to boot with a working live-cd

•unlock your encrypted root partition

•mount your root partition

•chroot into your root partition

•update your system to get the fixed cryptsetup package

•run cryptsetup close root (as described in the second step)

•reboot without live-cd

Even for "only" upgrading cryptsetup version I do need to mount all that:
Code: [Select]
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/root /mnt
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
# mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
# chroot /mnt /bin/bash

Did I got that right?

just have had a further "look" on my last code sequence.
Isn't that nonsense?
Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
I do have an encrypted disk, and therefore directly mounting of /dev/sda1 to /mnt/boot is very silly command and could cause heavy trouble?

@art: Installing another kernel shouldn't be that difficult.

Just read the wiki, or read jinformatique's comment: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31356.msg258704#msg258704

The installation of another kernel solved that particular problem for most of us.  ;)


And according to your 'hell of error messages' while trying to install a kernel. Don't you think it would be quite helpful to post those messages here to know what error exactly occured.
E.g., was it because you have no internet connection?

Have you run pacman -Syu in chroot?

that is an unencrypted boot partition presumably see the wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Encrypting_an_entire_system#Encrypted_boot_partition_.28GRUB.29)

you need it only if you want to upgrade your kernel

@art, philm gave links to the Arch Wiki, following all these links would give you the same commands as described by heyne01 and mmtm. I would just recommend to follow the commands as given in mmtm's post. I'm not sure, but some commands are described as optional by heyne01, but they are probably neccessary. Just mount all the mentioned subfolders to be sure and after that unmount them in reversed order.

@LA-MJ: thanks for clarification that /dev/sda1 is an unencryped partition - I thought that I made some strange copy-paste-error

@mmtm: you are right, that I should have posted the 'hell of error messages' while trying to install a kernel, but
1) I didn't log that
2) I wanted to go for the (what I thought) easiest way = just upgrade cryptsetup version
3) I didn't want to open a second stream of topic; just say, that I tried that as well and failed as well

I think I did it, but cannot remember for sure.

I mainly concentrated on fix-tutorial from philm, as this seems to be the easiest for me.

@all:
Do you really recommend to go for new kernel instead of fix-tutorial from philm?

I seem to be stuck at this oxygen icon error as shown in the post by others. Working with a live cd was promising except for the update part. I got the very same errors as on my main hard drive. So, I will need some further direction in order to get this resolved. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks, David.

What kind of errors? You will get nowhere with descriptions, people need data. What commands did you run and what was the output?

You can find whether the files are owned by a package:

pacman -Qo /usr/share/icons/oxygen/64x64/mimetypes/fonts-package.png

If they are not owned by a package, you can decide whether to force an overwrite with pacman, or just delete the files from disk.

Also, web search "pacman exists in filesystem" would get you similar answers.

Edit: or just do what oberon said. :)

oberon, Yes! That fixed the oxygen icon issue.
First I ran: sudo pacman-mirrors -g and updated the mirrors
next I ran : sudo pacman -Syy to sync the sources
then the great: sudo pacman -Su --force oxygen-icon command

The updates went through............

That has been fixed, so 4.4.5/4.5rc7 and 1.7.1-1.

Thanks for replying.

From a fresh install if I upgrade using:

sudo pacman -Syuv

Why does pacman report that the kernel & cryptsetup will be upgraded to linux41-4.1.19.-1 & 1.7.1-1 respectively?

Is this version combination ok to install or will it break access to full disk encryption?

How can I get my os to install the most up to date versions you listed?

I was under the impression that when using pacman -Syuv the most up to date stable versions of all software get pulled for installation. Am I wrong?

The combo you told should be OK as it's the last in the repos.i don't know why Jonathon talk about cryptsetup 1.7.2 as it's not even in unstable.  The last version is 1.7.1-1. and checking forum about the problem was about cryptsetup 1.7.0. so all should be fine..
to be sure before to boot after update install a new kernel (ex: 4.4) like this certainly one of them will boot and if both kernel run fine on your hardware it's always a good idea to have 2 kernel in case of update problem with one of the kernel
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux44

All the latest versions of installed software. If you have kernel 4.1 installed it will update to the latest version of kernel 4.1. There are many kernels available - your post did not specify which one you were running, hence the "most up-to-date", as in the newest, is now kernel 4.5. You might want to read around as to why there are different kernels available (and maybe what the kernel does).

i don't know why Jonathon talk about cryptsetup 1.7.2 as it's not even in unstable.  The last version is 1.7.1-1.

No idea. Edited.

Thanks for the encouragement and advice scachemaille.

After 1st upgrading cryptsetup to 1.7.1-1, I then upgraded my kernel to 4.1.19.-1 & also installed 4.4.5-1.

I don't know if cryptsetup 1.7.1-1 & my original kernel 4.1.15 would have worked together because I didn't reboot until I upgraded to & installed the above mentioned kernels.

What I can objectively confirm is that decryption is working at boot with both the 4.1.19.-1 & 4.4.5-1 kernels.

I had never used chroot before, so at the beggining it was difficult for me to follow the instructions from the Arch wiki. But this made it really easy and I could finally install a new kernel, everything is working back again! No system reinstalling, no starting all over again... Thank you so much!! And thaks to the team and everyone for making such a wonderful community.

Thank you so much omnimoon. I had a set-up with Uefi and with the homeddisk on a separate partition, so my mounts concerned sda4 and sda3, but otherwise it worked in one go.
Thanks again.
