The problem is that the ISO is a snapshot of the OS at a specific point and time in it’s history. Now, if there have been any major changes in packaging or system configurations since the ISO was released, then a new one will be required for the system to work properly after initial installation, this applies to NEW installs only. Once the system has been installed and as long as you keep your system updated as they are released, you’ll not need to install it again and be fine.
I was worried about the changes that we’re made to the Manjaro graphics stack and security key’s. etc. that occurred during the period between ISO’s, but I don’t see that these we’re issues for you.
However the baloo issue will need to be addressed.
The baloo and baloo-widgets were depreciated upstream by arch and just haven’t been removed from the Manjaro repositories yet. https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=baloo&maintainer=&flagged=
You’ll need to upgrade to the newer baloo4 packages as these have more functionality, bug’s were fixed and speed improvements have been applied, also the libraries and resources for akonadi were split out to their own packages.
Here is command to use:
sudo pacman -S baloo4 baloo4-akonadi baloo4-widgets libbaloo4
when asked about it replacing baloo and baloo-widgets enter yes to replace.
Also of concern will be the changes that Netrunner made to it’s boot process, as well as other fixes they made on the new ISO that we’re issues with the old one. (Examples: No Plymouth boot screen, the Account details>passwords and user information dialog freezing, the depreciated laptop-mode-tools being replaced by TLP, etc,) These are all things you’ll need to find and manually fix yourself after using the old ISO.
The firefox-kde package from the blueshell repository is at version 30, the Netrunner team is having issues compiling version 43 with the Suse KDE patches applied at the moment, once they get it compiled and tested it will be pushed to the blushell repository.
If you can’t wait then you can always install the firefox package from the Manjaro repositories until the other one gets updated.
sudo pacman -R firefox-kde
sudo pacman -S firefox
Optionally, you can also try compiling and/or editing the pkgbuild file for the firefox-kde-opensuse package yourself from the AUR.
yaourt -S firefox-kde-opensuse
