I cannot install most packages in the extra repository, since pacman fails to find them. I believe the repository index file (extra.db.tar.gz) is missing most of its entries.
you mean arch64.org? you can switch back to the old and well filled repo at arch64.org in /etc/pacman.conf ;-)
I've just read the announcements on arch64.org.
So what's the current situation? Where should pacman.conf point right now?
right now you can already use the current repo at archlinux.org. moving current repo has been finished
you can still use the extra repo from arch64.org. but no updates will go there. we are just preparing the archlinux.org extra repo for use. it will take some days. some new and updated stuff is already only there available. but the repo is still not complete. meanwhile you should stay with arch64.org and only temporarly use archlinux.org for new stuff. there will be an official post when all stuff has successfully moved.
btw: meet us in IRC #archlinux64 ;-)
Any updates on the new repository?
no. the list for archlinux.org is this: http://pansy.at/arch64_todo.html
we are no more adding outdated packages from extra as we soon expect new versions coming from testing to current/extra. everyone is waiting for the new kernel...
