#1 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » libglvnd: conflicting files to mesa » Yesterday 12:44:36

Yes, that looks to me the same as the list of errors in the OP of this thread.  I assume those ignored upgrades are something you configured this tool to do before running it.

#2 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » libglvnd: conflicting files to mesa » 2019-10-20 17:32:24

I was able to upgrade on the 16th so I assume whatever issue I was reporting about there has been fixed.  I'm just doing another update now which include a new version of mesa, and it seems to have installed the files just fine (currently it's rebuilding the linux modules as a post-install step).

I have mesa 19.2.1-2.0 now and libglvnd 1.2.0-3.0 and I'm running on intel graphics if that makes a difference.

Edit: mesa is from the testing repos also.  That might well make a difference.  libglvnd doesn't currently have a testing release mind you.  Pushing mesa 19.2.1-2.0 to replace 19.2.0-2.2 in stable might well fix this it seems.

#4 Re: Servers & Networking » Network configuration with commands ifconfig and ip » 2019-10-10 17:08:52

Okay, and do you require this to happen without touching, for remote initial connections, or could we leave it to happen only when you log in?  The latter could be achieved in your .bashrc or somewhere, but getting it to happen automatically on powerup I think requires you to write a systemd unit file, and thus far my experiments at that have failed so I can't help there.

#5 Re: Servers & Networking » Network configuration with commands ifconfig and ip » 2019-10-10 15:47:21

Do you have to use those on top of the standard Arch way of getting online, namely the netctl scripts, or are you rolling your own solution there?  You don't seem to be obtaining an IP address via DHCPclient so unless you're using static addressing, I'd assume something's getting the machine basically connected to begin with.

Upstream defines the atom namespace in the rss tag:

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="">

Like I say doing this in an rss file seems wrong to me, and if it's only to support that link I'm in favour of your solution of nixing the link as well.

#7 Re: Kernel & Hardware » How to run hardware specific USB formatter tool, designed for Win 10? » 2019-10-08 21:46:59

Hmm, yes.  If reactos doesn't run it, maybe WINE won't help either.  You'd have to try it out to be sure, but I think the two projects use much the same code.

#8 Re: System Administration » [solved] RSS - Recent Updates (more) - Latest News RSS Feed » 2019-10-08 15:21:21

Running the feed throught xmllint fails with this tag:

<atom:link href="" rel="self"></atom:link>

It says it doesn't have a source for the atom namespace.  I'm not sure why something that identifies itself as an rss feed contains atom namespaced items, so this might be an oversight.

I've tested that removing this element means it passes through xmllint without problems, but whether the same is true of thunderbird or not I couldn't say.  I installed thunderbird but I guess I need to put this file on the other side of an http server to test it.

#9 Re: Kernel & Hardware » How to run hardware specific USB formatter tool, designed for Win 10? » 2019-10-07 21:51:51

If you want to use that your best bet might be running it in wine.  Or if you only want to reformat it, you could format it under linux providing it shows up as a device under /dev/.  I'm not sure what either solution would so to detect and remove bad sectors from the formatting, but if you're expecting to lose the data anyway, you probably don't lose anyting trying to format it using the linux tools first.

#10 Re: System Administration » [solved] RSS - Recent Updates (more) - Latest News RSS Feed » 2019-10-07 17:13:02

That packages feed looks to me like an RSSv2 file with an xml encoding initial line.  The news feed is an atom feed for me at least (although I can't get your link to work).

I don't know what sort of feeds Thunderbirds RSS supports, that's really a question for them if nobody here knows.

#11 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [solved] Error during upgrade libxvmc » 2019-10-06 17:44:01

FWIW, we received a new version of xorgproto in the past few days, and that seems to have resolved this specific error.  Personally I still have mesa and libglvnd conflicts that need resolving one way or the other, but if the only problem you have is the one at the head of this thread, that problem should be resolved.

#13 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [solved] pacman -Syu - LXDE Desktop will not work -last work --> 2018 » 2019-10-04 15:20:33

Okay, I thought you could get away with not doing an -Rs to cascade all dependencies, but perhaps you can't.  FWIW, I can't actually understand very many technical terms in German, but that's my guess.  You can reset your language to English for stuff you need to report by preceding the call with an 'LC_ALL=C' so for e.g. 'LC_ALL=C pacman -R libmagick', so it'll print out errors more of us will recognise.,

But yeah, if you can't remove just libmagick, you can remove it and all dependencies with -Rs but I'd expect that to clobber imagemagick too.  You could then reinstall imagemagick without any problems, most likely, but I don't know if anything else it depends on is important to anything else you use (and not properly documented as a dependency of that thing).

Your mirrorlist looks reasonable to me.  A little fragile in extreme circumstances maybe, but it should be fine for the situation referred to here.

This is a little hard to control at this distance.  I can tell you what I'd do, but at the end of it it comes down to 'does it look okay' which is a value judgement.  It's something like this

$ pacman -Qi libmagick
$pacman -Qi imagemagick

Check the 'depends on' (or whatever that is in German) lines and ensure that almost everything libmagick depends on are covered by imagemagick.


$sudo pacman -Rs libmagick
$sudo pacman -Syu imagemagick

#14 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [solved] pacman -Syu - LXDE Desktop will not work -last work --> 2018 » 2019-10-04 02:54:14

Hmm, something looks broken.  I can't reproduce your error, but when I upgrade here, I get the following:

(52/52) checking for file conflicts                [#######################] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/egl.pc exists in both 'mesa' and 'libglvnd'
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/gl.pc exists in both 'mesa' and 'libglvnd'
libxvmc: /usr/include/X11/extensions/vldXvMC.h exists in filesystem (owned by xorgproto)

My mirrorlist seems to be up to date.  As for your problem, libmagick shouldn't be a real package, but instead is provided by imagemagick 7.  I'd suggest doing a

$ sudo pacman -R libmagick

Then re-run your -Syu and see what you get.

#15 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » digikam: error while loading shared libraries » 2019-10-01 19:31:25

Can you look at /usr/lib/* and see what you've got.  It's not a lib I have installed, so if it's just us you'll need to look and see what you've got.

#16 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » showfoto: error while loading shared libraries » 2019-10-01 19:28:32

Probably needs a rebuild.  Libexiv2 exists at version 27 in my filesystem, not 26, so I suspect it's the same for you.  If showfoto is still looking for version 26 then it's old and needs refreshing.  It's not something I use fwiw, and I've not checked the buildservers to see where it's at, but I'm just firing off a quick reply at this stage, so you get what you get.

#18 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Cannot start outdated gimp » 2019-09-24 23:34:31

Okay, just to check, in my system at least mypaint-brushes installs its brushes to /usr/share/my-paint-data/2.0 but yours appears to be in /usr/share/my-paint-data/1.0 according to that file conflict log in your pacman log most recently.

I guess to check that you could do a pacman -Ql mypaint-brushes and confirm that you do or don't get any of those files in /usr/share/my-paint-data/1.0 back.

I also have mypaint-brushes installed apparently as a dependency of something despite nothing in the repo claiming it.  I also have mypaint-brushes1 installed alongside that with no file conflicts due to a dependency from gimp.  I don't remember what used to depend on mypaint-brushes unless it was a previous spin of gimp, whereas nowadays gimp depends on mypaint-brushes1.

#19 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Cannot start outdated gimp » 2019-09-24 20:11:42

mypaint-brushes installs its brushes to /usr/data/share/my-paint-data/2.0, so they should really not conflict with mypaint-brushes1 (I have both installed with no file conflicts).  Something weird is going on there with cx's setup.

Cx, you have got a recent mirrorlist installed, I take it?  And you've done a -Syu recently too?

#20 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Cannot start outdated gimp » 2019-09-24 17:16:10

Just to be clear, gimp is working for me.  I don't have ghostscript installed any more, because of the number of updates it received for big bugs last year, but I go have poppler-glib installed (for inkscape).

Inkscape's working without terminal errors, and gimp works for me, although it does spit out that error while it's loading.

#21 Re: System Administration » mate-panel segfault » 2019-09-24 16:50:45

That should be mostly solved by pacman these days though, surely?  Most packages have had an update by now I reckon, although not all, but I'd expect something like mate and all of its plugins to have been updated by now, so even if you didn't follow the instructions to reinstall everything it should be okay.

#22 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] Cannot start outdated gimp » 2019-09-24 16:45:22

Okay, looks like my mirrorlist might have been a bit out of date, since I last updated it at some point last year.  Ran it through rankmirrors and two german servers came back fastest.

So I've got the new gimp now.  I did get this error during startup but it doesn't seem to have affected my use cases:

usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-ps/file-ps: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
gimp: LibGimpBase-WARNING: gimp: gimp_wire_read(): error

As my sig says, I'm using the testing repos.  No idea if it's broken in stable, but I can at least confirm it's broken in testing.

Edit: Just did a -Syu, and no gimp yet, but I'll keep my eyes open  for it.

#25 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [solved] firefox 67.0.4-1 » 2019-09-23 21:15:53

Hmm, I just got a message about a data breach from firefox monitor at xkcd when I visited that site today.  I've never had an account with xkcd so that's not a problem for me, but I'm wondering how exactly firefox knows there's been a breach there; does it download a big list of all breaches periodically, or is it sending the sites I visit to some server somewhere?  I told it not to notify me about breaches, but I can't find any setting in the preferences to cut it out entirely.

Reading up on it there seems to have been something called firefox monitor which you used to need to sign up with an email address to use, but I've never seen a real need to send my email address to mozilla.  This happened without me even being signed in to any kind of firefox account.
