[Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

Packer isn't working at all, or at least it isn't working right now. 

Here's what I get

error: failed retrieving file 'package-name-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.its.dal.ca : Failed to connect to ::1: Network is unreachable
error: failed retrieving file 'package-name-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.bytemark.co.uk : Failed to connect ::1: Network is unreachable 
error: failed retrieving file 'package-name-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.cinosure.com : Failed to connect ::1: Network is unreachable
error: failed retrieving file 'package-name-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.lividpenguin.com : Failed to connect to ::1: Network is unreachable
[...]

I'm not really sure what to do.  I'll try reinstalling packer.

Have you tried pacman?

Re: [Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

I think your network is down.  Did you post from the same computer?
What is the output of ip addr  ??

Yeah, pacman works, I used it to reinstall packer, actually.  (I have a private repository on my laptop that I store outdated packages that are no longer available or that are just a pain to compile from the AUR, like wine.)  Thanks for checking though.  smile

EDIT: I also use pacman, but I like to use packer as a stand-in since it can install things from both the AUR and the repos defined in pacman.conf; I greatly appreciate and enjoy using pacman every now and again for just searching the repos in pacman.conf though.

Well, I have been having a lot of trouble with both wicd and networkmanager.  I could get either of their clients--wicd-gtk, and nm-applet, respectibly--to work properly.  Wicd-gtk worked some of the time, while nm-applet would run, but it wouldn't respond to any input or interaction at all beyond right mouse clicks. 

Yeah, I posted from the same computer.  I'm on it right now too.  I've setup my installation of Arch to use netcfg to connect to a particular network depending on what I enter as my current location on system start up.  So my system gets online right after it finishes booting.  I have all that set up in my rc.local file.

Re: [Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

It's not clear if reinstalling packer fixed your problems or not.
Which packer version are you using? Try the one from AUR, not from unofficial user repos.
'wine' is in the repos (unless you need some "special" modifications).

Re: [Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

Okay, so packer does actually work.  I was able to install something from one of the repos listed in 'pacman.conf'.  So the problem here is not that packer isn't work, but that packer can't access the AUR for some reason, or is that the same thing as packer not working?

I'm not sure what version of packer that I'm using--packer's version is listed as 20120725-1, which was the date that I installed it on.  No worries about the unofficial user repos, I used the AUR's PKGBUILD to make my current installation of packer, the *pkg.tar.* archive of which I placed in my local repos.  I'll re-makepkg packer from the AUR anyway, just to be safe. 

My previous installation of Arch had a lot of problems running Wine, so I was trying out different versions wine to see which one would work.  Also, because I use wine-wow64-git, if it breaks or something and I want to reinstall it--it's the only version of wine that seems to run StarCraft without any lag in Openbox--I don't wanna have to wait for it to compile.  It literally takes forever, and used to also fill my '/tmp' directory all the way until I started allocating 6.5 GBs for my tmp folder. 

makepkg fails when building the AUR PKGBUILD for packer.  Here's what it spits out. 

$ makepkg

I reinstalled git just to make sure that it wasn't the problem with 'makepkg'; the error still occurred.

Oh, sorry, I also forgot to mention that the error for packer has changed.  Dx I seem to be forgetting to mention a lot of stuff.  Really sorry about my lack of coordination with keeping up with the new error and all. 

Here's what 'packer -S vim-slimv' gives

$ packer -S vim-slimv
Package `vim-slimv' does not exist.

and here's what 'packer -Ss vim-slimv' spits

$ packer -Ss vim-slimv

Oh, and here's the 'type -a packer' stuff

$ type -a packer
packer is /usr/bin/packer

vim-slimv is in the AUR so 'pacman -S' won't show any info about it:

Re: [Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

Alright, I'll check out those articles and get back with yall about it.  If it fixes the problem, I'll point out which article/link thing helped and what post/part of the article was the actual solution and then do the usual stuff like calling this solved.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 0#p1056920

(see above post for context please)

Now that I think of it I had some trouble with Chrome yesterday because it was trying to use a proxy that didn't exist or something like that.  =/  So I think that maybe the problem is more with curl than with packer.  Just finished reinstalling curl using pacman.  The problem isn't curl, it's my network setup I guess.  *sigh*  this is such a confusing problem. 

Tried using makepkg to make yaourt so that I would have AUR access, but that didn't work either

SOLUTION: Solved the problem.  I had previously installed and uninstalled 'httpripper' so that I could download videos and stuff from websites without having to use firefox, except that it didn't work with Chrome xD so I uninstalled it since it defeated the purpose.  Here's the wiki page with the fix on it. 

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pr … _variables

I'm gonna do a reboot to see if the environment variables come back now that I've turned them off. 

here's my implementation of the wiki script--it's identical, I think, except for a few customizations that I have made to mine.    smile 

function proxyoff () {
 unset HTTP_PROXY
 unset http_proxy
 unset HTTPS_PROXY
 unset https_proxy
 unset FTP_PROXY
 unset ftp_proxy
 echo -e "\n\e[1;34m:: \e[0mProxy environment variable(s) removed.\n"
}

Just add the function to your ~/.bashrc file and to your /etc/bash.bashrc, if you want. 

You could also add an optional bit after the function just so that it will auto-run everytime you login, but that may or may not be necessary.  I'll find out after I finish rebooting. 

proxyoff

I plan on adding any modifications that I make in the near future to this script onto here so that the community can benefit from it.  For example, I'd like to have it set up to only unset the variables if they are set and stuff like that.  I dunno, I guess I'll think about whether I'll edit this post or not.  But I'll definitely let yall know if the reboot resets those variables.

EDIT:  Proxyoff has to be run everytime you reboot your machine.  I just experienced the same problem with packer while trying to install pSX.

Add this to your ~/.bashrc file to make proxyoff only run once. 

if [[ -z $ifproxy ]] ; then
  #if ! curl www.archlinux.org ; then  # commented out because it is not as efficient as just using a variable.  
    proxyoff ;
    export ifproxy='0' ;
  #fi
fi

Re: [Solved] Packer can't retrieve anything

(I posted another reply simply because my previous post was beginning to look kind of large and cluttered.)

So here's the, for now, final product of the above script(s) and function. 

function proxyoff () {
 
 unset HTTP_PROXY  # an instance of every possible proxy.
 unset http_proxy
 unset HTTPS_PROXY
 unset https_proxy
 unset FTP_PROXY
 unset ftp_proxy
 
 if [[ -z $1 ]] ; then # if $1 is empty then 
  echo -e "\n\e[1;34m:: \e[0mProxy environment variable(s) removed.\n" ;
 fi
 case $1 in   # a case statement to allow for the adding of future functionality.  
  ('-s') ;; # no echo, that is silent mode.  
  ('--silent') ;; # same as the previous option.
#  ('-e') echo -e "\n\e[1;34m:: \e[0mProxy environment variable(s) removed.\n" # echo mode
#  ('--echo')  echo -e "\n\e[1;34m:: \e[0mProxy environment variable(s) removed.\n" ;; # same as previous.  
  ('-n') notify-send ":: Proxy environment variable(s) removed." ;; # for use with a notification daemon such as twmnd, which is what I use.  
  ('--notify') notify-send ":: Proxy environment variable(s) removed." ;; # same as previous. 
esac 
}


if [[ -z $ifproxy ]] ; then
 #if ! curl www.archlinux.org ; then # commented out because using a variable for job control is more efficient than testing whether curl can reach www.archlinux.org
  proxyoff ;
  export ifproxy='0';
 #fi
fi 

Enjoy.

None of that seems to work.  Every now and again, regardless of what I have setup I have to re-enter 'proxyoff' almost every time I use packer, and it's beginning to get annoying.  Any ideas as far as what program is constantly reloading the variables so that I can uninstall it?  I thought that it might be libproxy, but networkmanager requires that so I can't really uninstall it.  I've checked the wiki, and there wasn't anything helpful there.  I'm gonna check Google in a bit.

I recently came across a possible solution will checking out what dconf was exactly since I have that installed and I don't really know what it does.  (I think that it must have been installed as a dependency for something else.)  And apparently Dconf can be used to edit proxy settings.
