    NEW UPDATES Archlinux

    I know there are not a lot of Archlinux users right now but there are many that are interested. Bruno posted threads listing the updates for Debian, Slackware, Mandriva, PCLos, etc. So to stay in the spirit, I thought I would start a thread listing the updates for 32bit and 64bit Archlinux core, extra, community, and also the community-maintained AUR repos. Actually all the credit should go to Eric, since he thought of it first.Anyway, since Archlinux is a rolling distros there will be many updates daily. The main updates will have a description of the package but the AUR will not have a descr
  2. I had this problem a few months back, but I never started a thread on it, because college exams were getting close (I switched over to Debian, where steam worked). Now that I have time on my hands, I'm curious about the problem. I set up an Arch Linux VM, with Plasma 5 (The whole shabang) and installed steam. When I try to start it (from a terminal) I get this error: libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast Considering that this is probably a video deiver error, I'm not at all surprised I'm getting it here (I doubt VirtualBox guest a

  6. Not seeing this as being Arch Linux specific as I am sure other distros will be updating Perl as well. Though how they deal with this upgrade very well could be specific to their developers.

  7. I know I am missing something extremely simple here, but I built my new desktop computer, installed Arch, no problems there, but when I remove the Arch Linux Live disk and boot into the OS I can't get ethernet to work? Works fine with the live disk in but once I am in the OS, nada. I did run # systemctl enable dhcpcd@eth0.service That ran without errors but still a no go. I have never had ANY issues when plugging up an ethernet cable to any Arch linux build I have owned. So you know I am missing ONE major step and maybe because my eyes just are not what they used to be I m

  10. If you are using conky-lua in Arch Linux you may experience the following error. I have my conkys set up in my OpenBox menu and when selected they were not coming up. When I tried to run them via the command line I received the following error: conky: error while loading shared libraries: libiw.so.29: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 2 Days ago, a bug was created: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/38813 but it was deemed not a bug. Seems as if you downgrade wirelesstools; downgrading to version 29-8 conky starts working again. I have confirmed this to be

  12. More manual intervention. Always cringe when that happens. Make sure you make a back up before attempting!!!! Lord knows I will, this looks like it could be ugly. I speak only from my past moments with manual intervention updates.

  13. Been knee deep in the Xrandr Arch Wiki and have tried a number of things to change my resolution from the current 1366x768 to 1600x1200. Reason I am doing this is because I want to have more info in my conky and it ain't happening with the current resolution. I am running a Dell Latitude E5510 which is MORE than capable of handling a higher resolution. xrandr output shows: [ichase02@arch64 ~]$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192 eDP1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm 1366x768 60.0*+ 1024x768 60.0 800
  14. Been conversing with SecurityBreach via PM's, and thought I would bring this topic into the open forum for others reading to learn from. I recently installed Arch Linux x86_64 on a Dell Lattitude E6500. This is a quad core Intel i5 with 8 GB of RAM. For work puposes, I need to have Windows. I have Windows 7 installed on a seperate partition but realized with the setup I have, that I am now equiped to run Windows in a Vitual environment without it adversaly effecting the functionality of Arch. So I started with Virtual Box and installed 3 VMs. Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit, Windows XP Pro, and Li

I know Eric will probably say it is because he has already done it, but Eric is a "GURU" It is in print. Don't make me post the article again Eric.

    Deluge - Bittorrent Client

    I needed to torrent something earlier and I was in Arch. I didn't realize that I had not installed a bittorrent client in Arch before, so I had to snoop around a bit. I settled on Deluge. It seems to work really well and has a neat, efficient interface. I liked it so much, I'm building it for Slackware, too. Anyone here use this app? http://deluge-torrent.org/
  21. Is anyone having issues with Arch updating the past couple days. Neither my Pacman nor Yaourt finds any updates since Friday, I think. However, according to Josh's regular updates thread, there are some updates available. I checked the servers manually (by visiting them via browser) and they don't show the new updates; bash, for example, should be 4.2.039-1, yet on the server it's still 4.2.037-1. Arch usually isn't this slow to sync those mirrors. What's up?
  22. Just an opinion question. I know that net-tools in Arch Linux is depricated and the recommended alternative is iproute2. But with a basic network and not to mention being used to using command lines such as ifconfig, is installing net-tools still sufficiant? Like I said, this is just an opinion question. Kinda like the Grub Legacy and Grub2 question I am sure it all comes down to personal preference.
