This announcement is also available in Spanish and Taiwanese Mandarin.

Hi all,

You can now upgrade to the latest versions of KDE’s Plasma, Applications and Frameworks series, built against the brand new Qt 5.10.0.

Applications 17.12.0 are the first release of a new series that focused on introducing enhancements and new features. Several applications are now ported to Frameworks 5, but unfortunately some had to be dropped as they are no longer maintained. Please check the official announcement for the full details.

As always with stability updates, Plasma 5.11.5 and Frameworks 5.41.0 include a month’s worth of bug fixes and improvements.

It should be safe to answer yes to any replacement question by Pacman. If in doubt or if you face another issue in relation to this update, please ask or report it below.

Most of our mirrors take 12-24h to synchronize, after which it should be safe to upgrade. To be sure, please use the mirror status page to check that your mirror synchronized with our main server after this announcement.

Latest status of the testing repository [01 Dec 2017 - 07 Jan 2018]
System freeze during splash screen with OpenGL
(Massimiliano) #2

After this update I get some problem to start Chakra.
Log in screen display some flickering, never show before.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV516 [Radeon X1300/X1550 Series]
I don’t know if mesa driver has been changed.
Moreover still at log in screen, after insert password, the system is so damned slow that it seems to hang. Sometimes I do a reboot because of this neverending time waited.
Instead leaving many minutes it can reach desktop.
Bye

PS: log in screen blocked also when display goes to energy saving. I don’t know what it takes.

Ouch, sorry to hear that.

Can you switch to a terminal and share the versions of mesa and xorg-server you have installed?

The output of journalctl -p err could also help.


(Cazador) #4

Hi! After the last update failed to start sddm.
libqt5network.so.5 cannot open shared object file

Any solution?

Regards

Something is definitely wrong here, what is the full output of pacman -Qii mesa xorg-server?

This file is provided by the qt5-base 5.10.0-1 package. Can you verify that you have it installed? What is the output of pacman -Qii qt5-base?

@Martin_Boggiano what is the output of:
ldd /usr/bin/sddm | grep libQt5Network

mine is:
libQt5Network.so.5 => /usr/lib/libQt5Network.so.5 (0x00007fc6bc1be000)

About this ATA errors, you started experiencing them only after the xorg/mesa update? You are not using the new kernel 4.14.2, correct?

I found other users with this problem, check this out:
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2272486

about this errors:

you don’t have flite installed, are more warning then real errors, you can skip them


(Massimiliano) #12

Nope. I had ATA errors before. One of my hard disk has bad sectors.
I have kernel 4.13.11-1


(Cazador) #13

Tks tetris4 and AlmAck!
Reinstall from cache qt5-base 5.10.0-1 package and sddm work again :smiley:

I solve my flickering problem with new DDX video drivers from Xorg based on EGL glamor implementation (like Wayland one).

cat << EOF | sudo tee /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "modesetting"
Option “AccelMethod” "glamor"

Option “TearFree” "on"
EndSection

Hope it can help others.
