Upgrades for xorg, kernel and graphics drivers include important changes and might require manual intervention

(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #1

This announcement is also available in Spanish and Taiwanese Mandarin.

A long awaited upgrade is now available to all Chakra users! A total of 1140 packages have moved in our stable repositories and most significantly the linux kernel, the xorg server and the graphics drivers. Plasma, Applications and Frameworks packages by KDE have also been updated to the latest versions available.

In regards to the graphics drivers, some significant changes have been introduced, please read below to learn how they affect you and what are the possible options.

1. We have enabled support for libglvnd


This affects you if you have Chakra installed on a hybrid nvidia graphics system. You should now use bumblebee for the proprietary nvidia drivers and PRIME for the FOSS nouveau drivers.
If you are using bumblebee with the nvidia drivers, make sure your card is properly turned off after rebooting, by running

$ optirun --status

If not, then make sure to read through this thread and especially the workaround that worked for @dinolib.

2. We have dropped support for catalyst

This affects you if you have Chakra installed on an ATI/AMD graphics system and were using the proprietary drivers. Please follow the instructions on how to remove it and switch to the FOSS drivers.

Manual Intervention possibly needed

It is possible that you might come across some conflicts regarding the mesa package during this upgrade. In this case, please update mesa separately before trying to perform the upgrade:

$ sudo pacman -Sy mesa
$ sudo pacman -Syu

New package versions available now

  • linux 4.12.4
  • xorg-server 1.19.3
  • mesa 17.1.5
  • xf86-video-intel 2.99.917+770+gcb6ba2d
  • xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.15
  • xf86-video-amdgpu 1.3.0
  • xf86-video-ati 7.9.0
  • nvidia 384.59
  • nvidia-340xx 340.102
  • nvidia-304xx 304.135

KDE Software

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

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 when your mirror last synchronized with our main server.

(embrolio) #6

I tried to perform the update and since I have an integrated Intel graphics card didn’t thought I would have conflicts, but I did: I got a conflict regarding the mesa package and after doing

sudo pacman -Sy mesa
sudo pacman -Syu

my laptop froze. I rebooted and plasma did not load.
I accessed tty2 and removed xf86-video-intel driver, as suggested in the post @tetris4 mentions, but no luck, still no graphics.

I then tried to ran the full update but was getting conflicts with catalyst packages so I removed them and was able to update the system, but still no graphics.

At this point I was not sure if my graphics card needed the xf86-video-ati or xf86-video-amdgpu driver (Side question: is there an easy way to know if the graphics card is pre-GCN or which GCN gen?) so I tried both but again, no luck.

I doubled checked my graphics card with lspci and confirmed that was an Intel graphics card:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics (rev 09)

I googled and on a wiki page they used xf86-video-intel for this card, so I reinstalled the driver and that worked, I have graphics again.

My doubt is: why it didn’t work at the beginning (probably because catalyst was instaled?)

And also, probably one (or two) of these are not needed right? (I have these 3 drivers installed):

[~]$ pacman -Qs xf86-video 9:08:22
local/xf86-video-ati 7.9.0-1 (xorg-drivers xorg)
X.org ati video driver
local/xf86-video-intel 2.99.917+770+gcb6ba2d-1 (xorg-drivers xorg)
X.org Intel i810/i830/i915/945G/G965+ video drivers
local/xf86-video-vesa 2.3.4-2 (xorg-drivers xorg)
X.org vesa video driver


(cidig) #7

The update went without any errors but after rebooting I am missing one of the resulutions I used to use (my screen is 3840x2160) and I can’t run anything using primusrun:

$ primusrun ./cxrun
primus: fatal: failed to load any of the libraries: /usr/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1:/usr/lib32/nvidia/libGL.so.1
/usr/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib32/nvidia/libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


(RĂ©my Epke) #9

I find your lack of code tags…disturbing.

Ran the update without problems, and haven’t noticed weird behaviour yet.


(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #10

If you had catalyst installed, you needed to replace it first to avoid the conflicts. I think all three of those are needed since you have intel for the integrated cards, ati for the discrete one and vesa as backup.

Regarding primusrun, I included the link to a workaround in the first post. We need to see if we can fix this by default. Not sure why the resolution is affected, maybe a regression in new intel drivers?

Well, simple problems by updating the nvidia drivers and xorg-server today.
May, somebody can give me a hint to solve this.

(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #12

This one should be fixed now.

Our virtualbox-guest-utils package seems to still point to an older version of xorg, we need to fix this. Please report it on our bugtracker if it’s not fixed in a couple of days.


(cidig) #13

I tried the workaround and it didn’t help.

edit: it did work after all, I incorrectly exported the variable, all is fine now, thx :slight_smile:

Timestamp of the opening post has been changed from 2017-08-18 to 2017-10-05 to reflect when the repository changes occurred. Subsequent replies were automatically affected as well in order for the time difference to remain as-is. This is by design. Apologies for any inconvenience and confusion.


(Luca Giambonini) #15

Thanks for reporting this issue, the new virtualbox pkg is in testing and will be moved in stable today.


(Fred Talmadge) #16

With my Intel laptop, Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b), the Mesa upgrade left me without graphics and I wasn’t able to login with TTY2. So I installed another Chakra instance, logged in to my original. Completed the upgrade and everything is fine again. Not the smoothest upgrade, but alls well that ends well.


(svink) #17

Hi all,

After this update all windows have a little black border. I think it’s relative to xf86-video-intel driver update but I can’t downgade it:

LC_ALL=C sudo  pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917+736+gbde9460-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
[sudo] password for svink:

warning: downgrading package xf86-video-intel (2.99.917+770+gcb6ba2d-1 => 2.99.917+736+gbde9460-1)
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: xf86-video-intel and xorg-server are in conflict (X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION). Remove xorg-server? [y/N]

Others examples, Latte Dock has a black background, Firefox bookmarks has black border…

I have a Intel Mobile 945GM/GMS 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.

Any ideas?


Dashboard transparency lost after last upgrade
(Luca Giambonini) #18

the DRI on your card is enabled?
what is the output of glxinfo |grep "direct rendering"?

Which rendering on kwin are you using? OpenGL3/OpenGL2/XRender?


(svink) #19
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL 2.0

Same thing with OpenGL 3.1 after reboot.


(Luca Giambonini) #20

Do you have this file?
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

If not, try to create it and paste this code:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection

That should enable UXA acceleration method on your card (after a reboot). For reference you can look here on the Arch wiki.


(Frank) #21

Thank you Luca for the fast work.


(svink) #22

Thanks for the tips, I haven’t this file in my system but unfortunately nothing change after add it. I don’t know what to do…


(Massimiliano) #23

I got these messages in journal after the upgrade:

sddm-helper[885]: PAM unable to dlopen(/usr/lib/security/pam_elogind.so): /usr/lib/security/pam_elogind.so: impossibile aprire il file oggetto condiviso: File o directory

sddm-helper[885]: PAM adding faulty module: /usr/lib/security/pam_elogind.so


(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #24

Did you try with xrender? Maybe you’ll have more luck with that.


(tom) #25

and is your system working?
this isn’t a problem i suppose because my system is properly running and i also haven’t this file

[tom@frija ~]$ LC_ALL=C pacman -Qi /usr/lib/security/pam_elogind.so
error: package '/usr/lib/security/pam_elogind.so' was not found

next time please use code tags :slight_smile:
