I appear to have a similar issue to yingyi . Manjaro package manager continues to prompt that there is a new version with the following error message : unable to lock database Failed to synchronize databases Failed to synchronize AUR database

@yingyi that's weird, the pkgver() function was copy-pasted from the official gdm package. I can't reproduce the issue either.

There seems to be a problem with the pkgver function of pkgbuild, which causes the packaged gdm-prime version number to not match the version number in the aur repository. When using yay to detect updates, it will always prompt a new version

I was encountering the slow shell login that some have mentioned, but found that switching from bash to zsh fixed the problem entirely!

The patch below of PKGBUILD works for me with gnome 42.0:

No issues to report with the latest update, everything is still working great, thank you.

This update for some reason makes the booting process slower and it takes a few seconds for GDM to load. Here is the pastebin for my kernel journal

I fixed the issue by reverting to the previous version 41.0+r15+g23ebe617

I am not able to install this package. request failed: Get "": net/http: TLS handshake timeout

I am able to download all other packages from pacman and aur except for this package

@fmiguel, I was having the same problem.

Since yesterday I was trying to install, so I could get optimus running on top of gnome and had the same problem.

I started looking into it and since the error is in meson's build() process and the package is the same that was working on 28 of November, I was able to solve this right now and properly install the current package with a change of version in 'meson' package.

I don't know if I'm allowed to put links here, but in the archlinux archive (packages -> m -> meson), download another 'meson' version dated before 28th of November (when @Scotty_Trees said he got it working) - I installed '0.60.3-1-any' (with sudo pacman -U meson_downloaded_file inside file directory) and the build process for gdm will work just fine.

Just be aware of the moment gdm-prime will talk about conflicts and don't forget to remove gdm and libgdm in the confirmations that happen during the installation process.

Hope it helps you until the package is updated to new meson version.

I'm getting the following build error:
