- Happy Birthday!
- Your birthday? Aha! Now we know the culprit.
- Have you ever been known as a jinx (before)?
I upgraded yesterday before I found out about the problem. I only found out about it in the forum and I am glad and grateful that it did not affect me.
2.We, indeed, do!
3.At my age, it's a really big probability!
Is there still someone in the forum who is not affected by this problem, or am I the only one lucky?
All I will say at this point is I am very pleased it wasn't me what broke it, this time... Thanks to those much more worthy than I shall ever be for putting us (by us I mean serial dim-bulbs) out of our misery. Gonna load up on popcorn and watch it happen.
I can not upgrade my system until this is fixed
Also can someone please fix the typo in the name
There have been a couple suggestions in this thread that would allow you to upgrade. Either ignore the package or change to the sddm-git package.
I update my system with this command
sudo pamac -Syu --ignore sddm
Or, you can update via
pacman-manager unselecting the
Typo in title fixed (plymouth now).
At least that one I can fix by myself.
Well Plymouth-git and Plymouth got updated in chaotic repo
Now the issue with sddm is gone
You just have to now update your system as usual without any ignores
Is it better to change back to plain sddm, from the-git version?
Don't really know the difference, though I will educate myself on the weekend
Yes. -git usually means that its build from master branch (-> bleeding edge). In this case it worked helped fixing the bug temporarily so using is fine, as the issue is resolved now its good to go back to the stable version.
That cleared it up and was along the lines, I thought. Thanks!
But how do I boot into my system to upgrade it, how do I disable splash screen
On the GRUB screen:
Hi, guys. I installed sddm-git (0.19.0.10) instead of just sddm (0.19.0.5), but the problem remained. Can you tell me what I missed?
so, I just reinstalled plymouth, but the error still remains. Then I tried plymouth-git, without success.
P.S. I also updated the system.
Try sddm (0.19.0.5)
Thanks! Unfortunately, downgrade from 0.19.0.10 (git) to 0.19.0.5 helped
