I had to do a reinstall this morning, which went pretty well in general. However I've run across two packages that cause some serious problems.
When I try to install kdebindings I get the following errors:
Do you want to install/upgrade these packages? [Y/n]
:: Retrieving packages from current...
warning: failed to get filesize for kdebindings-3.0.8-1.pkg.tar.gz
failed downloading kdebindings-3.0.8-1.pkg.tar.gz from ftp.ibiblio.org: 550 kdebindings-3.0.8-1.pkg.tar.gz: No such file or directory.
The download fails 3 or 4 times, then there is a long pause and pacman aborts with a Broken Pipe error. Very nasty. Also, kdepim gives the exact same problem.
i had this trouble with ibiblio and their mirro of xfree86 i would suggest editing your pacman.conf file so that the ftp.archlinux.org server is at the top of the list.
I am not your friend
Nope, that doesn't help.
