Latest Kernel Update didn't trigger reboot message

Same here. No update notify on systemd running lts-kernel

Didn’t receive a notification, too. Running KDE on Xorg with Zen-Kernel.

What does this command show?

systemctl status eos-reboot-required.timer

Just changed the implementation of the reboot recommendation (the old one was a bit clumsy). Now it should work in a different way, and hopefully better and easier.
It is in package eos-bash-shared version 23.6-1.

If this new version does not work as expected, please report here.

I’ve not been getting the reboot recommendation either. Currently on eos-bash-shared 23.5-1. v23.6-1 hasn’t hit the repo yet for me.

I hadn’t paid attention to the notification when I updated because I always reboot after a kernel update anyway, but now that I’ve looked for it:

[uwe@HAL ~]$ systemctl status eos-reboot-required.timer
○ eos-reboot-required.timer - Notify about reboot on special conditions.
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/eos-reboot-required.timer; disabled; preset: disabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)
    Trigger: n/a

The previous version 23.5-1 required user to start the service. The new doesn’t.

After updating the system i have the exactly same output

➜  systemctl status eos-reboot-required.timer
○ eos-reboot-required.timer - Notify about reboot on special conditions.
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/eos-reboot-required.timer; disabled; preset: disabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)
    Trigger: n/a
   Triggers: ● eos-reboot-required.service

is this a simple systemd service to start?

The systemd service is now handled by eos-bas-shared code, so you don’t need to use it anymore.

But you can check that the reboot recommendation is working by re-installing e.g. intel-ucode or amd-ucode (the one you are currently using):

sudo pacman -S intel-ucode

Many thanks @manuel ! i have updated amd-ucode it works perfectly.
Got the update notifacation right after re-installing.

i also noticed yesterday i wasnt prompted to view/overwrite/etc when there was a new eos mirrorlist installed. isnt it supposed to do that?

Sorry, that’s not about reboot recommendations. You could start another thread about it.

arent both about eos hooks?

Please note the thread heading, that is what people would likely search if they have the same problem. Better solve one problem in one thread, then other users will find it more easily.

Edit: if you mean a mirrorlist change should cause a reboot recommendation, that’s not the case.

Can confirm that, after update of eos-bash-shared, reboot notification is working again.

Notification worked for me also after reinstalling amd-ucode.
