Bug #322

[server:repo] Needs attended pacman update

% Done:



repo still has glibc/filesystem from before the /lib+/usr/lib merge.

I'm afraid to do it because I can't sit down with it and push the power button if something goes wrong.

I'm not saying we need to upgrade everything, just

pacman -S pacman gcc gcc-libs libtool linux-libre-xen

I wouldn't have even added linux-libre-xen, but linux-libre-api-headers would get upgraded by the others.

Just to throw it out there: It hasn't been upgraded since 2012-05-03, more than a year.

pacman -Qi $(pacman -Q|sed 's/ .*//') |
sed -nr 's/(Install Date|Name)\s*:\s*//p' |
sed -r 's/(...) (..) (...) (....) (........) (..) GMT/\4 \3 \2 \6 \5/' |
tr '\n' ' ' | sed -r 's/([AP]M ..:..:..) /\1\n/g' |
sed -r 's/(\S*) (.*)/\2 \1/' |

Of course, a few packages have been installed since then. The above, piped into tail:

I successfully updated glibc+filesystem+pacman today. Yes, I rule.

I also updated murmurd, and manually kept the init script around.

Most of the packages still need updates, and it must be done carefully, but the "hell" upgrading is done :)

Any word on if systemd will work on it?


Updated by mtjm about 8 years ago

We checked if kernel options documented as needed by systemd are enabled a long time ago, all required ones are. I think we should try the upgrade and maybe ask n1md4 for logs and a kernel upgrade if it fails.
