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. Hats off to you guys!

Hello,

I updated my kernels 4.1 and 4.4 with all of the modules including linux41-zfs, linux44-zfs and linux41-spl and linux44-spl.  Now when I modprobe zfs I get "bad exec format" errors on both kernels.  The zfs module will not load.

Thanks for any help,

Randy

Are you using zfs on one of your partitions?

Looks like when I had kwin and removed it, not everything got removed. It's a good thing I had installed Timeshift that I installed earlier and did a system restore and I had to many lengthy updates and everything seems fine now. It looks like with Manjaro it's best not to go off the beaten path to ovoid problems. 
Using the terminal is like installing a hand crank on a modern car and using that hand crank to start the car instead of using the electric starter.

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
.
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....

I got a new desktop for work. Because Manjaro has been such a smooth ride on my laptop I had to install Manjaro on the desktop too...

The usual; smooth update as always.

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!

Go and read the info at this link.

I use the command line. yaourt -C will show you where you have these files and help you to deal with them. You will need to read on how to use dif or vim dif though. You need to deal with these files to keep your system clean

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.

Thankyou winston, that link provides precisely the information I needed to know  ;D
I like to keep a clean system but I do customize a lot, so this knowledge is important  8)
