Hi AJ.

I’ve learned to read the Manjaro release announcements before updating, and they really do save a lot of headaches. In this case, I tried the above code, and

pacman -S manjaro-keyring

gave me an error (sorry, can’t remember what it said). I scrolled down the release announcment page and someone recommended:

sudo pacman -Syuu

I used this and the update ran smoothly for me.

Yes well, I found the same issue but had to go to church so I didn’t have a chance to update the post, anyway Under NRR we needed to do this in a different way, here is the way I did it:

sudo pacman -Syyuu

Done, the manjaro-keyring is actually updated with everything else.

I would also highly recommend a kernel update to 3.14, it has improved boot times, enhancements to ALL opensource graphics drivers, support for more card readers, and a whole lot more.

To Install (keeping 3.10 as a backup): sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux314

To Upgrade (removing 3.10 from system): sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux314 rmc

Thanks. I did this and restarted. Kinfo still shows 3.10.39-1. Should I do anything else?

if you ran this than both kernels are still installed
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux314
it will automatically load the last kernel used, you will need to choose the 3.14 kernel from the grub menu.

I see. I did look at the Grub menu, but the 3.14 kernel does not appear. I must have done something wrong. Thanks, AJSlye, I’ll try again.

Edit: I ran mhwd-kernel -li and found both kernels are installed.

Perhaps an update-grub will show the newly installed kernel.

mhwd-kernel runs both mkinitcpio and update-grub automatically.

I seem to be sorted out now. No, update Grub never had an effect at all, nor did Grub customizer. What I ended up doing was using boot-repair, which I already had in Lubuntu, just running the recommended repairs. When I restarted, Grub showed the new kernel for the first time. I selected it and now Kinfo has it. So it’s all good for me. I appreciate the help very much.

Oh, I guess you’re running a Dual/Multi-boot system, this actually makes sense why grub had an issue now. Anyway, I’m so glad you were able to sort it out.

Go well, my friend.

Yes, AJ, Multi-boot. You know, I was always afraid to try Arch, though I did try a couple of times and failed even to install it. But I have a lot of faith in Netrunner and this is turning out to be a great experience for me, even stumbling around as I am. It’s a lovely distro. Go well, you, too.
