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!

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!

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.

@wordler

edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf is not good (pacnews)
create a file in new directory /etc/systemd/logind.conf.d/mychanges.conf and in this file, override your variables

same with /etc/systemd/journald.conf.d/*.conf

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.
Thanks for the help edo  :)

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.

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.

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.  :-[

Next time update one computer and look if it works. Or take any othe types of precautions.
ringo's answer might help, how to chroot into an encrypted partition: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=31365.msg257746#msg257746
After chrooting you can install or fowngrade a kernel.

I don't get this at all. Is there any way to give more detail instruction as to how to get into encryption, or am I totally screwed!

Is it safe to --force the way through this?

I would say yes, it will only affect the settings of a newly created user.

@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 :)
