Yes, it will work in the same way as other PKGBUILDs with binary sources - extract it and copy files. The only thing which should be mentioned is that deb-archive consists of 3 other files - debian-binary, control.tar.gz, data.tar.gz. makepkg will extract only first-level archive and then you should manually extract data.tar.gz. prepare() { tar -zxvf ...

You only choose audio card once when starting jackd. You can list cards available to alsa with aplay -l (aplay is part of alsa-utils). Then you can start the jack daemon, and pick the card to use with jackd -d alsa -d hw:<card>,<device>.

You only need the grml-zsh-config package like: pacman -S grml-zsh-config ...and maybe to set your default shell to zsh like: chsh -s /usr/bin/zsh [username] You might also want to check what else you can get like: pacman -Ss zsh

This can be done by using a custom dlagent. I do not really understand Arch packaging or how the dlagents work, so I only have a hack answer, but it gets the job done. The idea is to modify the PKGBUILD to use a custom download agent. I modified the source "${pkgname%-git}::git+http://github.com/Itseez/opencv.git" into ...

Edit : Systemd 216-3 is now in the core package, there shouldn't be any bugs now The fact that you can't log in as root isn't related to the systemd problem. https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41711 systemd had a problem identifying a first boot and enabled every service; currently, it is only fixed in the [testing] packages. I recommend the first solution, ...

enabling iptables (touch /etc/iptables/...) with an empty ruleset is really a bad idea you should reinstall your system; the bug (enabling of unrequested services - there are much more than iptables) is fixed in ARCH: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41711 Edit: maybe you should wait with reinstallation until systemd ...

I ran across the same issue just now, and found another workaround. Basically, it involves making the hosts /run directory available to the guest. First, we mount /run where it can be accessed by the guest. I will assume that your install partition is mounted at /mnt mkdir /mnt/hostrun mount --bind /run /mnt/hostrun Then, we chroot into the guest, and ...

When setting up a new Arch install I usually do the following: pacman -S alsa-utils Then fire up alsamixer with alsamixer Go to 'Master' then press M and then keep hitting the up key to bring the sound levels up. I do that for any other inputs I want like pcm etc. Then do speaker-test -c2 with the number being how many channels you want to test. ...

Your problem is that you don't have any swap space. Operating systems require a swap space so that they are able to free up ram space and store it on the hard drive. What you are going to need to do is reformat your hard drive. Red Hat has a suggest swap size chart here. Load up the arch live cd and repartition and swapon /dev/sdaX. If you need a ...

Here are some points which may help you a bit to diagnose the problem: Run free command to see memory usage Run top and then hit M to sort by memory usage or P to sort by CPU usage to see which program uses your resources Be sure that at /etc/fstab is a line to mount swap - you see swap usage after free look at /var/log/messages or in case you are using ...

According to https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/23065 (credit to jasonwryan), adding shallow cloning functionality to AUR PKGBUILD was a wishlist item that was closed on Saturday, 05 March 2011 with the comment: Reason for closing: Won't implement This suggests that it is not going to happen unless someone submits a patch. As I suggested to the poster ...

This problem is solved! - many thanks to utrecht. what i learn during this is that any system do mounts /root partition using the bootloader in the first place. After that they are remounted by systemd if only they exist in /etc/fstab. Due to some reason, my /etc/fstab did not generate as it should withing the installation. But the reason it worked was ...

The Cortex A8 is a specific processor design in the ARM v7 family. It's like how an Intel Celeron D Processor 325 can be described as a processor in the 64-bit Intel EM64T family, or as a processor in Intel's Northwood-128 family. That is, an ARM Cortex A8 describes a specific design, whereas ARM v7 describes the CPU instruction set, gives a minimum set of ...

Basically, udev was brought into the whole systemd revolution, and became part of a larger, more complex system. Various changes incremented the interface, and required a jump from .so.0 to .so.1. Rather than supporting both the old interface and the new interface by providing both .so.0 and .so.1, the developers opted to say "fuck it, we'll make them all ...

If all you want to do is upload a few files every now and then, I suggest using MobaXterm. I use it since I always need a terminal and rarely copy files. The nice thing about this solution is that it removes the need to have an ftp daemon running on the remote system. I open an ssh session, check the "Display SFTP browser" option and then copy the files. ...

If you are in arch-chroot mode you should run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg other than grub-mkconfig -o /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg Because: When you are installing arch linux for the first time, you mount your file system in /mnt and install base system from outside. Once you're done with base packages, you can arch-chroot inside /mnt and all the ...

Though the question is not clear, let's clarify that in the answer, with various ways to list fonts. You can have server-side fonts (deprecated) and client-side fonts. The list of available server-side fonts can be obtained with the xlsfonts utility. Concerning client-side fonts, this depends on the client. Such fonts are generally managed with fontconfig, ...

I've found the guilty after digging through the source of makepkg source /etc/profile &>/dev/null causes the problem, if I run this command it freezes, Ctrl+C will kill the whole terminal.

If your init scripts support it, you can add -c -c to /fsckoptions (then create /forcefsck and reboot). Unfortunately, this feature isn't available everywhere. You probably have to reboot to a LiveCD/LiveUSB instead. Perform Bad Blocks Scan on Root Partition in Linux

There are three elements to the process of determining whether a disk "runs linux" make a list of partitions to check mount each partition check each partition for some "magic" files unmount each partition For step 1, you can use 'parted' called via subprocess.check_output() and parse the return value. For step 2 and 4 use 'mount' resp. 'umount' via ...

You can't achieve the boot animation with the systemd but there is something called plymouth you can look at this package. Plymouth is an application runs very early in the boot process[Before root file system is mounted].It is designed to work on system with DRM modesetting drivers.For the system that doesn't have DRM mode,plymouth falls back to text mode. ...

I have exactly the same problem with an ASUS K551L XO301H I acquired recently. Passing the parameter psmouse.proto=bare to the kernel boot line fixed it for me.

This worked for me on my Arch Linux with Gnome 3.12. It turned out that it maybe related to the config in /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default. Run sudo pacman -S wmctrl to install wmctrl for windows management. Create a executable file for closing all windows. For example, I put it in /home/[your_username]/bin/close-all-windows with these contents: #!/bin/sh ...
