libpng/libjpeg rebuilds move from [testing] - Thanks

I just updated 80+ packages without a problem so I would like to thank the Arch Devs and TUs who contributed to this large update.

Yeah,

The Arch devs and TUs suck and should all be fired.

Wait, that didn't come out quite right -- language barries. I mean good work everyone.

It's true, this giant update went much smoother than I feared it would. In each case where I thought something was broken by it, it was actually some other thing causing it. The kernel.org mirrors are also behaving well with the large changeset.

In the process of researching prior to this upgrade (which went smoothly), I learned about cairo-lcd, so double-thanks.  smile

Re: libpng/libjpeg rebuilds move from [testing] - Thanks

In 4 laptops the updates went just fine. Thanks to dev /TU. In one laptop X got freezed on start due to hal failure as dbus did not properly create the sockets. After a clean up things are back to normal.

Re: libpng/libjpeg rebuilds move from [testing] - Thanks

Btw: I checked all packages if we had missed a rebuild for libpng or libjpeg. And I can assure you that all packages have been rebuild an non links to the old libs.

Re: libpng/libjpeg rebuilds move from [testing] - Thanks

for the xfce4, I had pacman -Syyu the whole system,  xfce4 was not in the list.  pacman -Sy xfce4   stated packages were up to date.

to solve problem, xfce4 now works with libpng1.4
copy and xfce4 config data that you think may lose,  the only thing that I noticed was that my personal menu was changed (but I will restore it with a copy) the system menu file is at /etc/xdg/menus/   the items in the menu are loaded from desktop files at /usr/share/applications

uninstall xfce4 and dependencies
  pacman -Rs xfce4

remove (or move for restore) the xfce4 packages from pacman cache (/var/cache/pacman/pkg)
  for example:
    rm -v /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xfce*
    rm -v /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xfwm*   --  this one because of the name

perhaps is not necessary to remove all xfce4, but that worked for me.  then  ... also note that I dont have xfce4 extras like thunar, squeeze, mousepad  -- etc.  check for unique xfce4 packages that cause problems at your system, this is a general guide

pacman -Sy xfce4

now pacman will not reinstall from the local store, but get the rebuilt xfce4 from a remote store.  is there a pacman command that automatically forces a remote load of some packages to install?  that would be easier.

note, see the mirror status to choose mirror that was updated since the rebuilds, 2010 january 30.  https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorSt … ync;sort=1


I dont know if this was all necessary, i think the other problems were all rebuilt and installed easier.  has anyone else had the same problem?
