#1 Re: Building » compiling chromium 75.0.3770.80 and ungoogled chromium » Yesterday 10:54:45

Hi, thanks for all your work.

I seem not be able to download anything from Gofile, I only get
"This upload does not exist".

Anyways, it's better to publish the PKGBUILD, preferably in the
AUR, either with a patch request against the original package, or
in a new package like ungoogled-chromium-32 if the author doens't
like the patch.

Compiling on original hardware is nothing anybody of us is doing, it's
simply too slow. That's why there are 32-bit staging chroots for bulding
32-bit software on 64-bit, see

I moved crypto++ and protobuf for i686 too, now clementine works also on i686.

#3 Re: Installation » Pentium 4: clementine fails due to missing library » Yesterday 10:01:44

Sorry for the late answer: I rebuilt clementine and pushed it to stable/pentium4.
Now on i686 there is still an issue with protobuf, I have to check what's blocking protobuf hitting stable..

This is amazing! Way to go. :-)

That's exactly how we can make use of old hardware when more people are willing
to get their hands dirty and start to fix problems.

It also shows another important thing: companies with open specs should be favoured
in OpenSource, as they can be made working even after the company is no longer maintaining
drivers. Companies like Nvidia are not really a good example..

On second thought, I don't think logging into the forum or the bug reporting tool via HTTP is really a good idea..

#10 Re: System Administration » XFCE4 either crashes the computer, or has a black screen, or works. » 2019-06-06 10:59:35

Do yo get a login prompt, i.e. lightdm?
Because if yes, then nothing is wrong with Xorg.
I usually test XFCE4, so I thinkg it's not a problem there

#11 Re: Installation » SSL Certificate for this forum expired » 2019-06-06 07:45:58

Can we please either automatize the updating of Let's Encrypt certificates, or at least disable HSTS for those sites?
Maybe also providing a plain HTTP version NOT redirecting to HTTPS?

#13 Re: System Administration » XFCE4 either crashes the computer, or has a black screen, or works. » 2019-06-05 12:37:41

You would see a SSE2 releated error when exetuing 'journalctl -b0 -l' (for the process lightdm or one of the greeters).

'lshw' (package lshw) or 'lspci' (package pciutils) can show you the graphic card.

[    77.210] (II) modeset(0): Refusing to try glamor on llvmpipe
[    77.257] (EE) modeset(0): glamor initialization failed

sounds not too good.

Is there any SIGILL in the journalctl for lightm (indicating alack of SSE2 problem)?

What is your graphics card?

#15 Re: Installation » Installation of pentium4 optimized packages » 2019-05-30 18:39:14

bluez-libs:    5.50-6.0   ==> 5.50-5.0
glibc:         2.29-1.26  ==> 2.29-1.3
libbluray:     1.1.1-1.0  ==> 1.1.0-1.1
libjpeg-turbo: 2.0.2-1.1  ==> 2.0.2-1.0
libutil-linux: 2.33.2-1.2 ==> 2.33.2-1.1

for example is:
- pkgver=2.29
- pkgrel=1
- the last number is the build number, in this case 26 tells you that glibc had quite some trouble to get released. :-)

#16 Re: Servers & Networking » Dhcpcd timed out. » 2019-05-29 14:49:20

Yeah. Try to shutdown the link 'ip link set dev enp1s0 down', pkill any still running 'dhclient' or 'dhcpcd' process.

Then try to do a ''dhcpcd' as root by hand:

dhcpcd -4 -d enp1s0

What's the output of that?

What if the output of 'ifconfig -a'

Timeout on enp1s0 means, your router doesn't give you an IP.
Did you try other devices with the same router? Do they show
the same problems?
Do you have access to a logfile of the router? Maybe the DHCP
sever tells us more, what's going wrong..

#17 Re: Servers & Networking » Dhcpcd timed out. » 2019-05-29 12:18:17

I would try to use 'DHCPClient=dhclient' in '/etc/netctl/dhcp' (or how your netctl profile is called).
Just to see if it makes a difference.

#18 Re: Building » Problem Building package (pentium4) » 2019-05-24 18:54:31

Staging and real stable machines work, just my stable test machines are borked, no clue why..

#19 Re: Building » Problem Building package (pentium4) » 2019-05-24 18:46:09

I get:

/usr/share/makepkg/buildenv/ line 28: build_options: readonly variable
/usr/share/makepkg/buildenv/ line 30: build_options: readonly variable
/usr/share/makepkg/buildenv/ line 28: build_options: readonly variable

then and endless loop in

/usr/share/makepkg/lint_pkgbuild/ line 73: exists_function_variable: command not found

bash 5.0.007-1.0


Same. I don't get that.

Without being able to reproduce it, I can think of /etc/makepkg.conf which should contain:


#20 Re: Kernel & Hardware » RC410M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200M] » 2019-05-24 13:16:24

Older packages have dependencies to other older packages, so the only supported downgrade
is to go back to a certain point in time. But this is a little bit counterintuitive for using Arch, as
Arch always has the newest and shiniest software - whether it's fast, supports feature X or even
sometimes - aeh works.

You could try to recompile only the older versions of some critical packages like mesa, but you
risk to hit API incompatibilities, as Xorg, mesa, kernel usually also move together.

#21 Re: Installation » After installation of pentium4 pack i can not install package from aur » 2019-05-20 08:00:16

Yes, Packages from the AUR have to be rebuilt. You have to add 'pentium4' to the 'arch' variable in the corresponding PKGBUILD files.

#22 Re: System Administration » My system auto shutdown/reboot » 2019-05-19 16:50:17

Did you install sensors (lm-sensors) and thinkfan?

Check with sensors how hot the machine really gets on both Linux installation.

Check at what speed the fans are running.

What about cpupower and p4-modclock, do you run on the same CPU frequency on both installations?

#24 Re: Kernel & Hardware » RC410M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200M] » 2019-05-17 17:00:26

You could also check out the pentium4 with SSE2 optimization
(see to get
more general perfomance (especially if all of the pentium4 packages
have once been rebuilt with march=pentium4).

I have to confess, that my newest ATI card is a ATI Radeon X1600, but there I'm running Archlinux 64-bit,
see … ook-a1211/
so I'm really not an expert in all this new mesa, gallium whatever stuff. :-)

#25 Re: Kernel & Hardware » RC410M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200M] » 2019-05-17 14:43:49

Well, you have at least a card which a) still works with X b) is even accelerated. :-)
I have some machines, where the best I can do is a VESA mode..
