I'm trying to install AL on my laptop, got through fine until I tried install KDE. Qt is missing from the sync database and therefore installation can't continue. I have AL installed on my desktop and searched for Qt after a pacman -Sy. No result for the Qt package is found. This is also the case for emacs. This is probably an oversight by the package managers but just wanted to let you guys know.
If the qt package is missing delete the "current" folder in /var/lib/pacman/ and pacman -Sy again.
i deleted the folder and did a pacman -Sy again. And then did a pacman -S qt and results in
qt: not found in sync db
I use the Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686 for my updates
Do you see the package after you sync?
****I changed the Server to one of the European mirrors. I found it there. I guess qt is not available on the ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686 server ******
I see whats going on now. The qt package is in the process of being loaded onto the server, just give it time. If you like, run abs and make the package yourself. cd into /var/abs/extra/lib/qt and do: makepkg -cfbi.
qt and emacs package have been uploaded to the ftp server, but the packages was not updated in ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/extra/os/i686/extra.db.tar.gz . They are missing from the list and therefore gives the files as missing.
Yeah I know that. I was hoping it was just a matter of time before the database was synced again. But come to think of it, I've never seen a package removed from the db like that.
I'm not sure what going on but it maybe worth notifying the maintainer about.
qt is now up in the server you posted. Try it again and it should work.
