[solved] problems with pacman after upgrading to 2.6.27-ARCH

i'm not sure if my problem is related with the new version of software or the fact that i ran out of space during the upgrade. but once i restarted after the upgrade i was not able to boot into the system and the error i would get was:
ERROR: Failed to parse block device name for '/dev/sda3'
unknown
ERROR: root fs cannot be detected. Try using the rootfstype= kernel parameter.
i followed what some other people did and i booted with livecd, chrooted and regenerated mkinitcpio. since i saw some other people having the same problems here is what i used:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Boo … omplicated
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mki … ng_presets
and just for good measure i decided to run fsck:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fsck
i was still seeing some segmentation faults so i decided to re-install all of the packages installed:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pac … re_Restore
now everything seems to work OK except when i run pacman. here is what i get:
/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libgettextpo.so is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.
/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libwiretap.so.0.0.1 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

packages are still installed but i would like to get to the bottom of this and get it fixed. any ideas what went wrong (well... besides me running out of disk space!) and how to get it fixed?

thanks for the reply. i tried finding out what packages these libraries beling to but for every single one of these listed i get an error saying that "No packages owns...". could it be something with ldconfig?
EDIT:
so i figured out that one of the files was related to wireshark. i tried re-installing wireshark and here is what i got:

  • [SOLVED] Problem with murmur after upgrading to 1.2.3-4

    I've been running Murmur on my server for a long time without problems. The last version I had running was 1.2.3-3. After upgrading to 1.2.3-4, the already-running murmurd process crashed after a while (some hours after the upgrade, after constant use) and I'm unable to restart it. The message I get is:
    :: Starting murmur [BUSY]
    <W>2012-01-07 22:06:11.133 Initializing settings from /etc/murmur.ini (basepath /etc)

    [DONE]
    and in murmur.log nothing gets written. Downgrading to 1.2.3-3 works, but I thought I'd look for the cause of the problem.
    After poking around a bit, I noticed that my murmur database (/var/lib/murmur/murmur.sqlite) belongs to a nonexistent user with a UID of 86 and a GID of 86, as well as the whole /var/log/murmur/ directory. I also noticed that a new murmur user and group with UID and GID of 1007 and 1000 exists on the system now. It seems that running:
    sudo chown -R murmur:murmur /var/lib/murmur/ /var/log/murmur/
    fixes the problem. Perhaps the update deleted my pre-existing murmur user and group and recreated them?
    Edit: Guess I should mark this as [SOLVED].
    Edit edit:
    Also turns out the whole /var/lib/murmur/ directory has to belong to murmur, not just the sqlite file.

  • [Solved] Problems with xinit after upgrade xorg-xinit to 1.3.4-2 versi

    Hi,
    Today I've upgraded my system with pacman -Syu and after upgrading xorg-xinit to 1.3.4-2 version I cannot use X.
    When I run "xinit" then single white window appears but there is not any reaction for mouse or keyboard events.
    I cannot even get back to VT by ctrl-alt-Fx or switch on/off NumLock. The only reaction on keyboard is issuing sysrq commands (ctrl-alt-sysrq E) which kills X.
    I also discovered that running following command helps: "xinit -- vt12" - I mean it launches X and mouse and keyboard are working fine.
    Is this a bug or I have misconfigured system?
    Last edited by wtx (2015-03-23 15:08:14)

    I can confirm what appears to be the same problem on my two machines running Arch with systemd. On both machines, after upgrading the xorg-* packages yesterday, X would not start as it normally did: I'd get a blank screen with only a _ up in the top left corner. Pressing ctrl-alt-(number) had no effect, nor did anything else I tried. (I didn't try killing X like the OP did.) Googled and searched the forums yesterday to no avail; nothing I tried worked.
    Caveat: In my case(s), I use 'startxfce4' instead of 'startx', so it might not be the exact issue. Trying 'startx' just took me to a default X installation setup, with three terminal windows and a clock. I'm sure anyone who's set up Arch for the first time has seen the same windows.
    So in case it helps, here's what I did to get them working again:
    1. This morning, I checked the forums again and saw the thread at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=195107, which recommended changing a line in the file /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc from:
    exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "[email protected]"
    to
    exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "[email protected]" vt$XDG_VTNR
    2. I didn't want to change the default file, so I created a ~/.xserverrc file (note that it's in my home directory, so it will only work for my one user; if you want it to work for multiple users you'd follow step one exactly, as recommended in the other thread). I put the line
    exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "[email protected]" vt$XDG_VTNR
    in that file, saved it, and fired up 'startxfce4'. Everything works perfectly.
    Again, since I use XFCE I don't know if it's exactly the same issue you have, but at least this might help point you towards a solution.
    PS
    In case you're wondering why I tried the solution in the other thread: The blank screen error only appears when I had
    needs_root_rights=yes
    in /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config. When I changed it to 'no' (or removed the file entirely), I would get an error message like "xf860OpenConsole: Cannot open /dev/tty0", which is similar to the error message the OP on that thread would get.
    EDIT:
    Actually, the more I think about it, the less I think this is the same problem. And the lack of details from the OP doesn't help. Still, it does appear that both of these problems concern passing a virtual terminal parameter to X, or failing to do so.

  • [Solved] Problems with themes after upgrading to kde 4.6.1

    Hi, I have a problem after upgrading qt to version 4.6.1. I use awesome wm and only few application based on qt framework (vlc, wpa_gui, virtualbox) and they all look awful after upgrade. It's like there is no themes installed. I'll post a screenshot if it is necessarily.
    Anyone have any idea?
    Tnx

    I can confirm. All application menus are completely broken in multi monitor setups. They refuse to show if application is not on the main screen. When it is on the main screen they show but most of the time are broken - wrong position, wrong size etc.
    Getting this too. Need it fixed soon, thanks.

  • Problems with Mail after upgrading to 10.9.1

    I am running into problems with Mail after installing 10.9.1. I had NO problems with Mail prior to this update.
    Problems I have encountered so far are:
    - I don't receive some e-mails on my Gmail account.
    - I have sent e-mails that supposedly got "sent" but do not show up in my Sent box both on mail and on web Gmail. My Outbox is empty also.
    Has anyone encountered the same problems and found a solution?
    Thanks in advance!

    Yes Paul I have, but no solution. I cannot send email. My ISP uses a smtp mail server for sending and It will not log in. Have had ISP on phone and checked all settings. Can only put it down to Mavericks.
    It worked OK for a week after upgrading then stopped. So now having to use web mail to send email.
    Strange thing is I receive mail OK, just cant send.

  • Problems with pacman when upgrading to xorg7

    I decided to try and update from xorg-11R6.8 to 7 tonight, after hesitating for a while. I saw all the bug reports and problem threads, and I still can't understand why something that results in so many bugs has been released. It doesn't seem to comply with the KISS principle, either, but who am I to judge?
    Anyway, my problem is this:
    When I try to install the xorg components, I get the following message in my terminal. After checking the packe intergrities, it'll go to install the first package and then show this:
    load_pkg: missing package name in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libxkbfile-1.0.1-1.pkg.tar.gz.
    After removing xorg-11R6.8, it will do this for any package I try to install, whether part of the new modular xorg or not.
    If I do a "pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xorg-11R6.8.2-6.pkg.tar.gz", it works fine again.
    I've read through the Xorg7 wiki entry and there's no reference to this problem.
    Any way to solve it?
    Thanks in advance.

    That didn't really help, either.
    Apart from a fresh install, is there anything I can do to just sort out all these stupid problems in one go?
    When I try and upgrade to xorg7, I get all these messages about missing object files and libraries, complaints from /sbin/ldconfig about the nvidia module being empty, all this other crap too; it seems like a different thing broken every time. When I downgrade to xorg-6.8, fluxbox comes up and works, but when I go to upgrade anything else with pacman, I just get the load_pkg errors or whatever else.
    I've tried editing my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to the new xorg7 paths when upgrading to xorg7, but it makes no difference.
    I don't understand how something that's supposed to simplify Arch could break things for so many people, =

  • Is anyone having problems with keynote after upgrading to Lion?

    After upgrading my system to Lion, my keynote presentations are becoming a nightmare. They crash all the time, and are becoming significantly slower, not just due to the autosave but after making just a few movements the beach ball appears and takes forever for me to be able to edit the document again. When I try to put into presentation mode the computer stops, sometimes I even lost the images inside the saved prasentation, and when I tried to recover from the auto saved versions, they were corrupted also. I talked to the apple support here in Brazil and after running all kinds procedures to check and fix the disk and hardware even in the safe mode, it still remained with the same problem. Another suggestion was to reinstall the keynote, and I even bought a new version from the app store even though the old one was updated. Again, nothing changed. Does anyone have the same problem or knows what to do?

    Hi Thomas - listen, I want to tell you that we aren't necessarily all in the same boat...what I mean is that this problem almost ruined my business and I spent a long time reading the dozen or so threads in this board, and tried solutions people suggested in each one. I had two separate problems...the first was like yours, and it was indeed solved by the time machine save setting mentioned above. The other was that I couldn't get an object selected with a click of the mouse every tenth time or so...I had to click onto a different slide and then come back to mine. I started turning off every single piece of hardware and software one by one, in search of a conflict. It turns out that my Apple Magic Mouse was the problem. I switched it to a plain MS wireless mouse and problem solved. *****, but it let's me continue. My point is that too many people are using Keynote just fine for any of us to throw in the towel and say it's universally and irreversibly broken. There are different bugs in play, but you have to go on the assumption that there's a way out if you can spot what's not quite right. Sorry I don't have your specific solution, but this mindset is what saved me from jumping ship to PPT.

  • New air problem with battery after upgrade to 10.6.5

    Hi List.
    I bought new air about month ago. Everything was working like a charm.
    2 days ago I did macos upgrade and I have big problem with battery performance. Only 2 hours of working after full charging. I decided to downgrade system to 10.6.4 and problem's gone.
    Is there something wrong with 10.6.5 on new air?

    Hi,
    I dont think there is something wrong with 10.6.5 simply because I have no problem with it
    Since battery management is one of the SMCs, resetting it may solve the issue.

  • Wifi problem with Mac after upgrade to Mavericks

    I just upgraded to Mavericks but something wrong with my wifi.
    i can get internet through LAN link from Airport but not through wifi even i can receive an IP address
    i tried connect to hotspot with my iphone5s and it works.
    Other devices can use wifi just fine through Airport, just not my Mac using Mavericks
    In conclusion,
    Airport should be fine because my other devices works.
    Mac wifi should be fine too because i can connect using hotspot.
    so why it's not working when i connect Mac to Airport?

    I was having problems connecting to Wifi with my Macbook Pro (!2010), after upgrading to Mavericks. I was on the phone repeateadly with AT&T because I have Uverse. Testing everything (channels, signal strength) and had techs come out to check the line, ports, switches, etc. When I hardwired the Mac into the Uverse router, it worked fine. This rulled out any problems with the line in.
    I considered getting a repeater but then I read that repeaters are not really good and it is better to reconfigure a router to act as an access point on the network. Plunked down about $80 for a Belkin AC750 router at Best Buy. In the setup it has an option to set it up as an access point only. Clicked that, connected it to my Motorola NVG510 Uverse modem and then connected to the Belkin router from my Mac. Voila!  It's been a solid 11+ Mbs ever since (my plan maxes at 12Mbs). Connection is still solid and life if good even though it ***** to plunk down another $80 for a second router. But it was worth it just to get rid of the headaches.
    I think the wifi capabilities of the Motorola NVG510 modem are the cause of a lot of problems with AT&T Uverse issues, particularly for Mac owners. I think it was also causing my Airport Expresses to drop occasionally.... Few minutes of music then drop... music drop.... All gone now.
    I don't know if you are on Uverse but if so, I highly recommend configuring a second router as an acces point (it can be any old router you still might have - the setup is just a bit trickier because you have to do it manually).
    Good luck.

    Perhaps, you intend to say "stopped" working?
    If you have a BlackBerry Data Plan on your service provider account, on your BlackBerry device, go to:
    1. Options > Advanced > Host Routing Table > Menu > Register.
    2. Resend your service books from your carrier BIS site:
    From your handheld device:   http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB15402
    Go to the Personal Email Set Up icon and log in. Then under Help!, select Service Books, then select Send service Books.
    From your desktop PC:  http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB02830
    North American Carriers - scroll down to select your carrier
    WorldWide Carriers - Find your carrier on the list
    3. With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot. This reboot, even if you have already done this, is often needed to install the service books.

  • Problem with colors after upgrading to Lion

    After upgrading to Lion, I could no longer distinguish between very light greys (e.g., #f8f8f8) and white (#ffffff) on my laptop monitor. The difference is readily apparent on many websites.
    If I plug my laptop into an external monitor, the problem goes away, and stays away even AFTER unplugging it.
    Neither recalibrating the color profile nor rebooting have any effect.
    Any ideas?

    iPhoto is not part of Lion. It comes with a Mac. So, the version you own is the one that came with your Mac. If you want the newest version, you'll have to purchase it from the App Store.

  • Problems with plugins after upgrading to win8

    Hi
    I made the upgrade to Windows 8 and now several PS plugins causes Photoshop CS6 to "Stop Working And need to close". I have uninstalled
    and reinstalled plugins and still the same problem. As this happens with different plugins from different vendors I am led to believe this is
    not a 3rd party problem, but rather a problem with PS in win8. Happens with plugins from Niksoft and RedGiant. Needless to say I have
    all the latest software and updates - legally purchased.
    I haven't done much research into this, posting here is my first step after googeling didn't help. Is this a common problem? Does anyone
    know a fix to this? It's of such importance that I am already considering reinstalling win7.

    As an update on this,
    After I installed the latest Windows Update system fix packages that were released today most of the plugins now work. I am not 100% sure I can credit MS with fixing this, as I fiddled with alot with my graphics card trying to make this work at the same time as I updated. I will have to do some more testing on this to able to say exactly what was the problem.
    I'm installing win7+ps on a virtual machine so I can use that when absolutely needed for the plugins still not working - guess I can live with that until certain 3rd party vendors sort things out.
    Allright Noel, I get your point  - but you have to be downright difficult to be reading my initial question as if I was seeking support on 3rd party software as such.
