[SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

Hi, I used to update my system with pacman -Syuu and I didn't know if this command would update my packages installed with packer from AUR..after reading packer wiki I decided to try packer -Syu ...some packages updated ( google chrome included) and since then when I go on chrome to watch a video on youtube, there is yellow pixels flashing all over the place. (even when the video is on pause)...it wasn't doing that 5 mins before updating...I tried reinstalling chrome, no joy.

any help please

edot: is there a way to see all the packages that were updated or something...I might find the cause

Re: [SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

pacman will never update packages from AUR

To see the list of packages that were updated

cat /var/log/pacman.log

For a list of updates and times, check /var/log/pacman.log

Edit: too slow.

Re: [SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

I just checked in the pacman.log file but it doesn't have the packers update...I have no clue why youtube videos have all these bugged pixels poping everywhere...it started happening after packer -Syu...even if I reinstall google chrome, nothing changes..

again the yellow/white particles moves even when the video is on pause, it seems kinda laggy too...

Re: [SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

pacman.log will have everything.  packer is simply an AUR helper and the actual install is still done by pacman...

[2013-01-31 17:06] Running 'pacman -U google-chrome-24.0.1312.57-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz'
[2013-01-31 17:06] upgraded google-chrome (24.0.1312.56-1 -> 24.0.1312.57-1)

Google Chrome seems ok here.  64 bit with nvidia and nvidia driver.

Re: [SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

yeah, I just realized that...When I did packer -Syu, only google-chrome and acroread were updated, I tried unstalling both and reinstalling and  I still have pixel flying all around in my youtube video, I just installed firefox and I don't get this bug...I tried removing all google-chrome files of my system after unstalling too...
Since I don't know what is the problem..I might as well start using firefox even tho I prefer chrome

..just uninstalled firefox, can't stand it for some reason. Still need help to fix this bug..once I figure out gimp or find some kind of paint I will post a S/S

Re: [SOLVED] Problem after updating with packer -Syu yellow dots

Little update : I found a post on another forum saying that google chrome has problem since version .24 with html 5 and it happened to many people...some fixed the problem removing all cookies of youtube from their chrome and some downgraded their google chrome.
Since I couldn't downgrade my google chrome, I disabled my flash plugin :something .137 and I installed : flashplugin-beta from AUR.
Now everything works fine.
