Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

I did a -Suf

Is that going to destroy my system?

Thanks!

sorry about the double post.  I posted that other thread before I saw this one.

Are you sure you don't have it?
$ pacman -Qi klibc
It's required by mkinitcpio. I don't think you're upgrading your kernel without it, unless you're do that manually. It's in [base], so I would think you have it.

Odd, it appears now in 'pacman -Syu' output where it didn't yesterday.  Maybe repo lag...

Probably your mirror hadn't synced yet.

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

Thanks for the fix. However, would anyone care to explain (briefly) what is the cause of the error? Is it a pacman bug? I don't have much experience in linux programming but I like to know why things happen and how. lol

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

I followed all posts but I've the same problem with pacman -Syu :
errore: impossibile inizializzare l'operazione richiesta (impossibile soddisfare le dipendenze)
:: ipw3945: richiede kernel26<2.6.27

I tried to install again to do:
pacman -S klibc  (but with the same problem)
pacman -Suf (but with the same problem)

I tried again to do:
rm /usr/lib/klibc/include/asm     (but asm is a directory).

Do you have news how resolving my problems???

Thank you.

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

Ok, I've already found the solution...........founded on this forum:

pacman -R ipw3945
pacman -Syu

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

Should people who have used -f also remove this link?

No, it would be removed automatically.  It was much safer to remove the link manually then upgrade.  Be very careful when using -f.

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

Man I just forced it with -f ... system still running fine as it should. I figured that if it needed updating no harm in forcing it anyway tongue

The issue with the -f switch is that it will FORCEFULLY OVERWRITE files when upgrading. So if you run -Suf then you're essentially FORCING the upgrade of EVERY out of date package on your system. This is why the -f flag is so dangerous, what happens if you changed a file for your specific need. If using the -f switch, that file that you changed will be overwritten. Not the behavior one wants.

So instead of forcing the upgrade for every package, it would have been BETTER to ONLY force the upgrade to klibc.

pacman -Syf klibc

then

pacman -Su

for the rest of the update.

Re: ATTENTION ALL USERS:klibc upgrade requires user intervention

I just did a

pacman -Rd klibc

and then

pacman -Syu

and finally

pacman -S klibc

this worked for me but I did it on core system fresh installed from CD no alsa, xorg or gnome etc. installed.

That would have been fun if you had lost power in the middle....
