#2 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » sending Spam ? » 2019-02-16 11:07:12

Yeah. I also think, someone read the database with emails from the BB forum..

#4 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-13 07:23:53

'firefox-i18n' and 'firefox' are on 65.0 now.
I don't experience any problems so far.

#5 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-12 06:47:46

Ok, I rescheduled and priorized all firefox i18n files..

#6 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-12 06:39:40

firefox 65 hits stable. :-)

There is an issue with the corresponding i18n files, maybe they will be build now, or I have to
force them all onto the build slaves?

#7 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [solved] 11.02.2019 Error "pacman -Syu" » 2019-02-12 06:38:51

Can you check which mirror you are using in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist?
Maybe switching that one helps.

Also, do a pacman -Syyu instead of pacman -Syu to force the update
of seemingly up-to-date database files..

I cannot reproduce this using my mirror,
just did a full update on stable.

#8 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-11 06:50:32

Yes, if you strace the process then you see firefox-bin is restarting itself in an endless loop. This is for 0.64 and 0.65.
BTW: I managed to build a firefox by hand disabling more LTO stuff in mozconfig. I checked in and I hope it will hit
the build slaves soon.

#9 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-10 13:40:23

Trying a build now disabling also LTO in LDFLAGS and FLAGS, not just in Rust.

#10 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-10 13:14:15

I don't think anything is working here: /tmp files are not used, LTO is still done,
and in parallel making matters worse.

So I cannot reproduce a successful build with the current patches in PKGBUILD:

#11 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-10 09:13:39

I'm trying that on the buildmaster machine. I'm building outside of our build system, if that works, then we may
find out, what exactly goes wrong. /tmp on tmpfs was a really bad idea, /tmp on a SSD with only 2 GB of disk space
left too. Now my 3rd run is using /tmp on the slow old platters. :-)

#12 Re: Mirrors » Online Mirrorlist » 2019-02-08 18:25:12

Yep. Things are on the move. :-)
Update reflector first. There was a bug yesterday concerning the missing trailing slash and
another one around as new location of the

@deep42thought: I would like to push a changed revision, but again, I have no access right to the git repo.

#13 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » [SOLVED] Problem with package repo? » 2019-02-08 07:58:18

Thanks. Temporary glitch. deep42thought restarted memcached. The reason, why memcached (or the client) looses it's sockets, is unclear though..

#14 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-08 07:57:20

32-bit limits the amount of RAM per process to 3.x GB, so more memory might help, when building in parallel.
Which means for firefox: DON'T build in parallel. :-)
I still think, we had the chroot build method circumventing systemd-nspawn, maybe that helps?

#15 Re: Installation » Install to Alix 2d2 i586 board? » 2019-02-07 09:09:40


"With your serial console ready, plug in the ALIX board’s power adapter, and you should see the board begin to boot. While the memory check is being performed, press the ‘s’ key to enter the tinyBIOS settings, and verify that PXE boot is enabled (if it isn’t, press ‘e’ to toggle it)."

So PXE is another option. But then you have to go through a DHCP, TFTP, extract root image to NBD or NFS, etc. hazzle I did that for some other old machines booting just a iPXE floppy, but it's a hazzle to set up and I currently don't have a nice walkthrough (though some hints maybe in this forum in section "Artwork, Screenshots & Setups", ).

#16 Re: Installation » Install to Alix 2d2 i586 board? » 2019-02-07 08:58:12

You have to use the i486 packages, the Geode lacks some opcodes which are now used in the i686 version of glibc.

I did a small walkthrough on

I didn't have any luck booting an USB stick on the Alix, so I just installed the Compact flash from another
PC with a Compact flash reader/writer in it, setting Architecture=i486 and doing a pacstrap.

PXE was also no option on the device.

Note also: currently this i486 branch has only a very limited set of packages, mainly text-based, no
Xorg, nothing depending on librsvg (I'm looking at you - librsvg/rust).

Another potential problem: I'm using an Alix with a normal BIOS, yours has a  tinyBIOS. There you
might be into some fiddling how to load the ramdisk and the kernel from tinyBIOS (I have no experience
here as my other Alix with tinyBIOS is running OpenBSD and is my central router, so no fiddling there for
me :-) ).

#17 Re: Creating/Maintaining Packages » extra/firefox » 2019-02-07 07:17:57

Even installing the precompiled packages firefox-bin 65.0 and 64.0 are no help: they just result in an endless loop of starting itself over and over again.
So even if we manage to build the new versions, chances are, they will expose the same strange behaviour.

It's simply not acceptable that one company with Firefox and Rust libsrvg is creating 80% of the maintaince work for a Linux distribution IMHO.

#18 Re: System Administration » Ruby 2.6 Rubygems error » 2019-02-02 07:38:22

Maybe this is the problem:

ruby --version
ruby 2.6.0p0 (2018-12-25 revision 66547) [i686-linux]

pacman -Ql rubygems | grep rubygems.rb
rubygems /usr/lib/ruby/2.5.0/rubygems.rb

So, stable contains rubygems from the old version and the interpreter is on the new version.

Though I still get no such errors when doing

ruby --version

I pushed rubygems 3.0.2-3.1 (for 2.6) to stable, let's see, if this helps, or if we break more stuff. :-)

#20 Re: System Administration » [SOLVED] After last update VLC won't start anymore: skins2 interface.. » 2019-01-25 07:54:52

Mmh. It could be related do changes in binutils around some tagging information..
My problem is: I never experienced personally such a problem on my machines, so I'm a
little hesitant..

#21 Re: Installation » Advice for partitioning a new 1 TB hard disk » 2019-01-25 07:52:24

Ah, that link is more on how do you install Archlinux from an already existing Linux distribution on the system.

has some useful hints.

I find a separate /home useful.
A separate /boot partition may be handy if you have more than one Linux or
Windows installation and you want to keep the boot area safe(r).
Old machines should use a BIOS partitioning scheme, GPT is for EFI.
Swap should be as big as the physical memory if you want to hibernate to disk,
more than 4 GB swap make rarely sense on 32-bit machines.

#23 Re: Installation » Survey: On what cpu do you (want to) use archlinux32? » 2019-01-23 15:28:12

Actually, has a list of all CPUs and whether they are 64-bit, have SSExxx, etc.

#24 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [Solved] Updating Linux kernel/firmware » 2019-01-22 17:49:31

If the ISO is very old, you may have to update the PGP keys first:

pacman -S archlinux-keyring archlinux32-keyring
pacman-key --refresh

#25 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [Solved] Updating Linux kernel/firmware » 2019-01-22 17:48:18

Yep. 64-bit no longer supports 32-bit stuff, that's why this forum here exists. :-)

Booting from any 32-bit ISO (prefereably the newest one) should give you access
to you root partition. Then you can reinstall linux, linux-firmware, linux-headers
with 'pacman --root=/mnt linux, linux-firmware, linux-headers'.
