Re: glibc update and /lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH/kernel/oss/ folde

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I have followed the guide, just that I'm puzzled about what to do at that step. The output of that "grep" command in my system is:

A bunch of things under /var/lib/pacman/local/glibc-2.16.0-1/files

which I suppose I don't need to worry about (right?) and

/var/lib/pacman/local/lib32-glibc-2.15-10/files:lib/
/var/lib/pacman/local/lib32-glibc-2.15-10/files:lib/ld-linux.so.2

But I don't know how to rebulid lib32-glibc-2.15-10 so as not to include the /lib directory as suggested in the guide.

I had those lines too and I've made them disappear by first enabling [multilib] repo again and

 pacman -Su --ignore glibc 

in order to update lib32-glibc package. Then simply update glibc.

I hope it helps to anybody else

Re: glibc update and /lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH/kernel/oss/ folde

your tip doesn't work with 32 bits version of archlinux,

see this post, it's impossible to update glibc despite the wiki guide :

Re: glibc update and /lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH/kernel/oss/ folde

I found the solution !!

the solution is to move the /lib/modules folder in a backup folder, in order to have only the files owned by glibc :

mv /lib/modules  /home/potomac/backup

it's the only way if I want to update glibc

I think the article in the wiki is not clear when I read this :

"If no other files are in /lib/modules, you can safely remove that directory"

it should be :

"If no other files are in /lib/modules, you MUST safely remove that directory, otherwise the update of glibc will fail".

Thanks! I had the same issue and this almost solved it.  Only difference is I needed to refresh the package list as well using the -y option:

 pacman -Syu --ignore glibc

Yes, I missed that -y option.

Re: glibc update and /lib/modules/extramodules-3.4-ARCH/kernel/oss/ folde

Thanks to all of you guys. I solved the problem by removing both /lib/modules and /lib/udev.
Now i ll keep them there for a few days (just in case) and later i ll delete them.
