is it safe to use -f switch.

Note: thanks pressh. As I did not subscribe to dev public, I am not aware of the solution also not in the home page. The cobalt  theme prevent me to switch to home from the forum page tongue.

Re: [Solved]kernel26-2.6.34.2-1 upgrade fails

Same error here. Those files don't seem to be owned by another package. Not sure where they came from.

EDIT: Like you I am using the nVidia binary driver though I had installed the driver earlier today. The last modified times of the two conflicting files matches the install time of the nVidia driver according to pacman's logs. The files appear to be empty except for a single line comment in each.

Same here. The upgrade fail. But when I use "uname -a", it show "2.6.34-ARCH" (i installed Arcg using the 2010.05 iso and the included kenel was 2.6.33.4)

Providing a link would probably make things easier. wink

But this should really be noted in the news.

BTW: The kernel was updated flawlessly here.

My referring to 'that' was about pressh confirming it was safe, not so much about arch-dev-public tongue.

Just add the -f flag to your usual update option:

pacman -Suf

The -f switch forces pacman to overwrite conflicting files.
And don't forget: There is a "man pacman" help. Make use of it. wink

Really? I hesitate to use the -y flag together with the -f.

NEVER EVER use -f along with -u

pacman -Sf kernel26 && pacman -Su

Re: [Solved]kernel26-2.6.34.2-1 upgrade fails

I just did:

# pacman  -Sf kernel26
# pacman -Sf kernel26-headers
# pacman -Syu

And it broke my broadcom b43 wireless driver. Haven't really had a chance to look at it but just posting as a heads up for anyone else out there using the b43 driver.

Re: [Solved]kernel26-2.6.34.2-1 upgrade fails

If you havent cleared you cache, the older version of the kernel would still be there

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/kernel26

You might need to hit tab to see which version, then select the lower version number

Re: [Solved]kernel26-2.6.34.2-1 upgrade fails

The update broke my network too.  Broadcom BCM4401-B0.  Just get DHCP timeouts attempting to start the network with the new kernel.  Needed to downgrade as I can't troubleshoot now.

Re: [Solved]kernel26-2.6.34.2-1 upgrade fails

I have a Broadcom BCM4322. I'm assuming I should not upgrade?

EDIT: It seems a patch has been released.

O_O
Hmm, waiting a week or so before doing an update does not seem like a bad idea...

:: Synchronizing package databases...
 testing is up to date
 archlinuxfr is up to date
 catalyst is up to date
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community-testing is up to date
 community is up to date
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: tiacx: requires kernel26<2.6.35

Oh. tiacx...not needed. /no more error.
