[SOLVED]How I can prevent gnome from updating?

Hi there!
Currently I use Gnome 3.4
The last time I did full system updated to Gnome 3.6, everything went very bad. Currently I have a lot of packages waiting for update, and I do not update because it includes a lot of Gnome 3.6 packages as well. Is there a way to ignore the whole gnome group from updating? Currently I do not have time to mess with the stupid things they did in Gnome 3.6, but I do want my system up to date.

Thank you!

You can use IgnoreGroup in the [options] section of pacman.conf:

IgnoreGroup = gnome

For more info, see the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … g_upgraded

Personally never used the feature, so I'm not sure about the implications of ignoring an entire group.

Excellent! I wonder how I missed that -.-'
But too sad some gnome packages are not included nor in gnome nor in gnome-extra groups (for example gnome-bluetooth).
Anyway thanks a lot! This helped! smile
