No issues with the update on 5 computers, but occasional long delay at shutdown still remains, and I found out that I wasn't able to install any new kernel via system settings > kernel. I was trying to install 4.2 on my wife's laptop (Intel graphics). The mouse was totally invisible with kernel 4.1, but I already had installed kernel 4.5, and after booting into kernel 4.5, it worked fine. Then I tried to install kernel 4.2, but it immediately says done, and nothing is installed. I suspect it has something to do with this update, because I tried to download a new kernel on my test laptop, and same thing. Couldn't install it. I guess I'll wait for the next update to see if that will fix the problem.

Isn't kernel 4.2 EOL?

Ubuntu just updated 14.04 LTS with the 4.2 kernel so I would assume not... Unless they're maintaining it themselves.

They must be, because according to kernel.org, 4.2 is not a supported kernel anymore. So 4.2 might be a "SES" or whatever it's called these days.

Hello.

@oberon, @philm and any other, I found the following "errors".

I always have disabled IPv6 in the kernel through the grub, add "ipv6.disable=1" to the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT".

Ping: Last week the ping command worked correctly. This week, after the updates, is required to use the form "ping -4 ..." if it is not displayed the following message:
Code: [Select]
$ ping 8.8.8.8
Ping: socket: This Address family not supported by protocol (raw socket required by specified options)

Code: [Select]
$ ping -4 8.8.8.8
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=3 ttl=55 time=25.7 ms
^C

3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 2002ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 25.629/25.766/25.941/0.130 ms

VLC: I have problems to see some videos that previously, with the version 2.2.1, I could see correctly. But it is not with all, only with some videos. ???

I use kernel 4.1 in Manjaro Xfce OpenRC x86_64.

I have a 2 TB secondary hard drive connect to a SATA 2 port  to store downloads that I do with the Qbittorrent, store the ISO of multiple systems and the virtual machine of VirtualBox.

Qbittorrent and VirtualBox: Last week could be downloading with the Qbittorrent and open VM VirtualBox simultaneously without any problem. Now, if I'm downloading with the Qbittorrent and open a virtual machine both are "stops", Qbittorrent stop downloads but not the uploads and VirtualBox loads very slowly the virtual machine, as if the secondary disk or system couldn't with the workload. After a few minutes the system recovers and both programs work again normally.

The network connection that I have is 100/10 Mbps but the Qbittorrent is limited to 40/5 Mbps. I think it strange that a SATA 2 disk does not support the transfer rate when last week it would be able to do so.

Do they have in common these symptoms? The hard disk and the updates. ???

Note: This weekend I will do a test on the hard disk even though it would be much coincidence that fail the disk and updated the distribution simultaneously, but anything can happen in this life and more strange things have been seen.  :)

GSmartControl said that the hard disk is perfect. See attachment.

@Esclapion: please use the latest package version manjaro-tools-iso 0.11.2-2. I just tested KDE-minimal based on our testing branch and no issues found.

I do now a try with exactly the same profile and 0.10, but on testing, and it works. Something is broken for the moment in stable. Not calamares (same), i don't know what.

Is it just me, or is the "updated 2.77" Blender in fact an older version (2.76.11) than the one in the previous edition (2.76b)?

Hi,

I used a script with xrandr commands to start my extended screen, but after this update it stopped working.

My script:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1280x1024 --rate 60
xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_85.00"  159.36  1280 1376 1512 1744  1024 1025 1028 1075  -HSync +Vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1280x1024_85.00
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x1024_85.00
xrandr --output DVI-0 --auto --output VGA-0 --auto --right-of DVI-0

And now this script generates errors:
Code: [Select]
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)
  Serial number of failed request:  31
  Current serial number in output stream:  31
X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  16 (RRCreateMode)
  Serial number of failed request:  29
  Current serial number in output stream:  29
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)
  Serial number of failed request:  30
  Current serial number in output stream:  30
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)
  Serial number of failed request:  31
  Current serial number in output stream:  31

Can you help me to solve this ?

Thanks in advance.

Edit:
I have found a solution by generating parameters of Modeline with a cvt command (which is different from that generated with a gtf command previously. Strange, but it works :) ).

XFCE machine had zero problems, but my KDE machine refuses to connect to ethernet after the upgrade. I have tried removing the connection, rebooting the adsl box etc. But it just keeps on "connecting.. disconnected" Happens on all 3 kernel series i have installed.
