Went smooth so far.

In the announcement they said that you might have to manually change the ‘/etc/X11/mhwd.d/intel.conf’ and change the acceleration method to “uxa” there.

Indeed after the update the acceleration method was still “sna” and I had to manually change it to “uxa”…

Use Octopi had to update twice for some reason. 1st was 9 packages. After downloading and refresh then informed me of 62 updates more. Then a Aur manual update for the Yahoo weather plasmoid. Hope it gets moved into the regular arena with the other plasmoids.

Otherwise a smooth update. Only annoying bug is on bootup once every 3rd to 5th boot my dual monitors end up cloned with left monitor stacked on top of right monitor. Drag and align them and back to normal. Guess it’s a Mesa? Plasma 5? issue or bug? As using default open drivers on my Ati 4350 driving two 22" displays.

And been happening for last month or so.
