Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

g15daemon. i might be able to update the PKGBUILD for it yes.

Currently looks like this (wishing for a spoilertag)

# Contributor: Valeriy Lyasotskiy <onestep@ukr.net>

pkgname=g15daemon
pkgver=1.9.5.3
pkgrel=5
pkgdesc="A daemon that makes it possible to use the G-Buttons and draw on the G15 LCD"

depends=('libg15' 'libg15render>=1.2')

build() {
  cd "$srcdir"/$pkgname-$pkgver

  ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static

}

package() {
  cd "$srcdir"/$pkgname-$pkgver

  make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

  install -D -m 755 "$srcdir"/g15daemon "$pkgdir"/etc/rc.d/g15daemon
  install -D -m 644 "$srcdir"/g15daemon.service "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/systemd/system/g15daemon.service

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

Have you read the comments in https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/g15daemon/ ?
There already seems to be a patch to compile g15daemon in /usr/bin.

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

Offtopic but i have a question regarding people not reading the news and the mess it creates some times. Has it ever been proposed that pacman should inform the user in the case there are important news before an update?? Ie. display a message like "There are news regarding system updates. Want to view them (Y/n)"

Yes, it has been proposed a few times.
You can use e.g. pacmatic https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm … /pacmatic/

Certainly is a great idea in so many ways, it'd be convenient for most user i believe, i'll look into that pacmatic thing.

Thanks a lot karol, i'll use that patch smile

"Want to view them (Y/y)" Would be better.
I'd bet 100 USD that people would still create forum threads asking why there are conflicts. big_smile

Pacman actually tells you to read the news. The output is called "xy exists in filesystem".

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

well, i reinstalled g15daemon to /usr/bin with the updated pkgbuild, then finished my -Syu and filesystem with it, i rebooted and it gives me this

ERROR: device 'UUID=87...' not found. Skipping fsck.
ERROR: Unable to find root device 'UUID-87...'.
You are being dropped to a recovery shell
    Type 'exit' to try and continue booting
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

And my input devices (assumingly unrelated to g15daemon) don't work so i can't type anything, i assume i'll need to use the arch install cd to fix this by chrooting but what do i need to do to fix this? i'd guess it's grub related... but grub stil boots fine into windows, luckily.

Gentoo has exactly that. You think people read it? The answer should be obvious.

Let's not get OT here.

rabcor, did you google 'sh: can't access tty; job control turned off'? There are a few recent threads that might help you.

Good, at least one. Ok, I'm sure you're not the only one, but if you read Gentoo's forums, there's always threads about issues that are explained in the news items.

@karol: Searching for that error won't bring any results, because that's not actually the problem. The real problem is something in the initramfs failed. The message comes from busybox, because when the initramfs fails you get dropped into a busybox shell. The real problem is above that - device can't be found. Either the UUID is wrong, or the initramfs wasn't created correctly and so it lacks stuff that allows mounting by UUID.

well then the best solution to it is good moderation, even if i'm sure the function helps reduce the redundant threads to begin with.

Give a link to a thread with a very clear solution. and lock the thread after a few hours if the OP doesn't reply/solved his problem.

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

i have been using uuid since my initial setup. the uuid should still be correct, i haven't edited fstab recently nor grub.cfg. so that thread did not help me at all.

SOLVED: i found this through some more googling, and i chrooted in from the install cd, and ran "mkinitcpio -p linux" and it booted fine after that.

I was wandering why moderators keep merging in the new threads about this issue, but I guess it makes sense: you got yourself into this mess, you have to get yourself out. Digging through this monstrous thread is meant as your punishment :-P
The later you come here, the longer the thread will be, so from now on update more often, carefully read pacman's output and watch out for the news.

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

Help needed.

Yesterday I was going to update my system, readed the news, and did pacman -Syy, and then pacman -Su just to download everything.

Got to the error a expected:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
filesystem: /bin exists in filesystem

And in the meantime I executed the suggested command to find the non-official packages with files in /bin, /sbin or /usr/sbin:

pacman -Qqo /bin /sbin /usr/sbin | pacman -Qm -

Got a list of about a dozen packages that I have installed form the AUR, did a few attempts to fix them but it was late so I decided to continue next day (I don't know how to fix the PKGBUILDs that doesn't even have the "bin" term on them).

Today I rebooted, executed the same command (to get the list and continue with the fixing-packages task), but surprisingly, the command finds nothing.

So... I don't know what happened.
Any idea/suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you all.

Re: filesystem Update Error /bin exists in filesystem

Are you sure you didn't forget the trailing dash first time? If you did, it would return everything you had installed that wasn't in a repo (every AUR package).

Ha!, it seems that it was that. (Without the trailing dash I get yesterday's list)(common mistake when tired). Thank you!

I will continue with the update and see how it goes...
