glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

So, I'm attempting to update glibc, and everything has been cleared out of /lib except the glibc libraries. According to "find /lib -exec pacman -Qo -- {} +" everything inside /lib is owned by glibc, but /lib is unowned. When I attempt to update, I receive the error: "glibc: /lib exists in filesystem"

How can I fix this?

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

Did you do the grep line from the wiki?

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

I have the same problem,

I have follow the wiki by using these 2 commands :

pacman -Syu --ignore glibc
then
pacman -Su

but the last command always gives me an error :

"error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
glibc: /lib exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded."

the grep line :
grep '^lib/' /var/lib/pacman/local/*/files

this grep shows me that glibc-2.16.0-1 package uses the /lib folder,

how can I fix my problem ?

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

@Potomac

Did you skip

find /lib -exec pacman -Qo -- {} +

and, if not, what results did you get?

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

I have the same result like Katherine1 :

/lib --> no owner

but everything inside the /lib folder is owned by glibc with a lot of files ( /lib/ld-linux.so.2, /lib/libpcprofile.so etc... )

I have followed the guide and I don't understand why the update doesn't work

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

for your information archlinux is installed in virtualbox ( virtual machine ) and I use vboxguest additions modules ( the Oracle version, manually installed, not the archlinux package version ),

I have uninstalled "virtualbox guest addition modules" but I still have the problem with glibc, it's impossible to do the update with pacman

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

I had the same issue. The problem was in lib32-glibc.
So, update lib32-glibc first - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 1#p1129601

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

I don't have "lib32-glibc" in my system ( archlinux 32 bit ), pacman doesn't find this package when I type :

pacman -S lib32-glibc



but 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

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

I had a real irritable one, whereas I had to remove the lib directory itself (glibc was the owner of the files directly under /lib).  Wouldn't even let me execute any commands on the shell then.  Of course, it wouldn't reboot.  Thanks to PXE booting, I could mount the drives, finish running pacman -Su and be on my way.

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

Hi all.  I followed the instructions in the DeveloperWiki for upgrading glibc, and found that hal owned the file /lib/udev/rules.d/90-hal.rules.  I moved it to /usr/lib by hand (maybe a mistake) and removed the /lib/udev and /lib/udev/rules.d directories.  But that is not good enough, because pacman still thinks that hal has some ownership of /lib.  Pacman reports:

pacman -Qo /lib
error: cannot determine ownership of '/lib'

and

grep '^lib/' /var/lib/pacman/local/*/files

yields

Try removing hal for now, then after the update reinstall it

I still had it from some time ago, but if it is missing in the repos, and installed on the machine, it's still there.   I still had hal on my machine and had to remove it.

It might be time for the LiveCD to the rescue!  (even though you haven't messed up your machine---yet)
Removing the /lib directory in lieu of placing a sym-link for /usr/lib will in fact leave the machine hosed.  Doesn't seem to be any way around it.  Or removing the current glibc so that the new glibc can be installed will cause the same thing to happen.  Mileage seems to vary.

pacman -Su

If I understand the wiki correctly. I can just move the files owned by glibck to /usr/lib and ignore the other files or delete them manually (which appears to primarily be the modules folder), right?

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

Thanks -- I removed hal and then finished the upgrade successfully.  There was no issue of reinstalling hal -- seems the package doesn't even exist anymore.  Thanks again.

Re: glibc update refusing to proceed. File ownership problem

It looks like moving the files to the /usr/lib directory before upgrading and removing any other possible conflicts will allow a successful upgrade.


I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.

I think if you do that glibc will stop working. It's much better to simply look at and remove all offending files/packages (other that glibc), update, then reinstall whatever is required.

Well, after moving the files it appears as though I can't do anything. No programs launch and none of the terminal commands work. So I'm unsure what's going on now.

Yes, that's because almost everything depends on glibc, but by manually moving it you have broken it. Now it's time for some livecd wizardry I have no idea about.

Like I said before it's much simpler to just look at the extra files/packages (other than glibc), remove them, update, then reinstall whatever is necessary. It's all there in the wiki.

In your specific case the wiki even states that:

One common source of files in /lib is left overs from running depmod on a kernel update. For example:
error: No package owns /lib/modules/3.1.9-2-ARCH/modules.*

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

And as for fglrx, you simply remove catalyst, then reinstall it after the update.

I suppose I need to use chroot and move some things around and try an update again and I've done all that I can do without rebooting the system. That I think I need some instruction on as I don't ever use it.
