pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

Heya

I just added the AUR repos in my pacman.conf, and synced. But whenever I try to search for a package I am absolutely sure is there, I get a not found message. Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

The community repo does not contain binary packages of everything in the AUR - those packages marked "unsupported" are not in the community repo

Ok, update:

I can't retrieve ANY packages, nor search for them after I added that repos. All searches turns up as not found.

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

what commands are you using?

try this:

# pacman -Sy [to update your databases]
# pacman -Ss pacman [to search for pacman]

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

I'm trying pacman -Ss AND -Sy here.

For some reason it just won't search anything but the ones I already had, except the [community] repos. Irks me.

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

ok, what does your pacman.conf file look like... and the files in /etc/pacman.d/* (are they empty?)

also, do a "ls" on /var/lib/pacman/

pacman.conf:

[options]
LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
NoUpgrade   = etc/passwd etc/group etc/shadow etc/sudoers
NoUpgrade   = etc/fstab etc/raidtab etc/ld.so.conf
NoUpgrade   = etc/rc.conf etc/rc.local
NoUpgrade   = etc/modprobe.conf etc/modules.conf
NoUpgrade   = etc/lilo.conf boot/grub/menu.lst
NoUpgrade   = etc/archstats/archstats.conf
HoldPkg     = pacman glibc
IgnorePkg = kernel26 mesa ati-drivers flac

I dont use pacman.d (copied to pacman.conf) as a matter of taste.

And the last bit:

root(kalliope):/etc/pacman.d$ ls /var/lib/pacman/
community  current  extra  link  local  xentac

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages

I don't understand, I copied exactly what you had into mine and it works fine. Does pacman show community being updated during -Sy? You may want to check in /var/lib/pacman and look for the communinty folder. Inside you should see the same file names as those inside the community.tar.gz file at your specified server.

Re: pacman failing to retrieve and search packages
