I just updated pacman, as was suggested, since a new version had come. And then it I got this:
FATAL: kernel too old
I had to go into the cache and manually unpack the old package, and copy the executable to /usr/bin, to be able to downgrade...
I'm normally using the 2.6, but had to use the 2.4.26 just now. Isn't pacman supposed to work with 2.4 kernels anymore?
the TESTING repo has a new version of glibc, which is only compatible with the 2.6 kernel.
"Contrary to popular belief, penguins are not the salvation of modern technology. Neither do they throw parties for the urban proletariat."
I had acctually forgotten to turn off testing after installing x.org.
Anyway, it's interesting to learn that testing only works for 2.6.
