That's not a conflict, its a reflection of the fact that the new version of X (1.16) has hit the repos and, as the news makes clear, glamour-egl is deprecated. Follow pacman's advice and select Y.

You can either reconfigure MySQL to look for the data directory in a different location, or bind mount a new location over the original. Make sure that the mysql service is stopped before you carry out these changes. Then, move all the files and sub-directories from the original location into your new location. Reconfigure MySQL edit /etc/my.cnf and ...

Gilles is correct; this is due to the changes in xorg-server 1.16 which were announced on the Arch News. To work around the permissions issue, you can use a Xorg.wrap config file to pass root rights, using: needs_root_rights = yes See man Xorg.wrap for the details. You could also try using xf86-video-modesetting instead of xf86-video-fbdev until the ...

Previously, VCS PKGBUILDS included a more transparent function for cloning the git repository identified in the source array, so it was a lot more obvious how they worked. Changes to the way makepkg handles these packages, documented by one of the pacman developers here, made the overall process a lot simpler. Esentially, the same thing still happens: the ...

You should really not worry about a temperature of 50-60°, that's normal. Dell XPS has intel core i5 and these things can handle maximums of up to 80-100°, that would be worth worrying. When they reach these temperatures they also automatically shut down before something bad can happen to them, so really no need to worry. The best thing you can do to manage ...

Your WiFi NIC can only support being connected to 1 access point (as far as I know), irregardless of how many antennas it has connected to it. So you'd need multiple WiFi NICs. If you did have multiple NICs then you could take a look at this U&L Q&A titled: Using multiple NICs for faster internet?, for what options you have in terms of using them ...

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. ...

So the solution was, change the /etc/passwd file for user1's shell from /usr/bin/bash into /bin/bash

Settings like this go into the MySQL configuration file (e.g. in /etc/mysql/my.cnf; the exact location depends on your system). The setting in question is datadir, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/server-options.html#option_mysqld_datadir for more info.

It may be a problem in the USB stick. Some sticks won't boot directly as if they were a CD drive. Try the manual formatting strategy, as described on: USB Flash Installation Media

The reason that you were getting the "target not found" message is that your local pacman database was being used to reference a target (nvidia) that no longer existed on the mirrors, as it had since been replaced by a newer version. The correct, and only safe, way to fix this is to first force an update of your local database with pacman -Syy and then do a ...

pacman -Syy updated my repos and now I was able to fetch nvidia. From Arch docs: Tip: Passing two --refresh or -y flags forces pacman to refresh all package lists even if they are considered to be up to date. Issuing pacman -Syy whenever changing to a new mirror is good practice and will avoid possible issues. Something got screwed up (this machine ...

Probably in such cases bridges are used to interconnect up multiple access points on the same network or else signal repeaters, also known as expanders signal.

In addition to jasonwryans excellent answer: Most AUR helpers have a flag to update development packages, even if their pkgver hasn't changed in the AUR. For pacaur, that flag is called --devel which can be used in conjunction with its update operations. It will cause pacaur to rebuild development package, but only if their source is newer than that of the ...

Below is an updated textclock.lua widget that responds to timezone changes at runtime. I replaced the file /usr/share/awesome/lib/awful/widget/textclock.lua. I also installed the luatz module from this github repo and moved the luatz folder to /usr/share/lua/5.2/luatz so that the lua require function finds it automatically. ...

The issue was that I didn't have OpenSSL properly installed. I installed using sudo pacman -S openssl. Then, I tried restarting Apache again, and got an additional error regarding a missing certificate. I used this guide to create a self-signed certificate and then was able to properly enable and start httpd.service.

I just found it. I use CTRL + ALT to switch keyboard layout. If I change that to something else, then all the CTRL + ALT shortcuts works as it should. Must be a bug then.

Thanks to brm's comment and reading the xrandr man page, I figured out what the issue was. There were two problems: First, I'd always used xrandr's -s option, which specifies size, rather than the newer --mode option. This almost always works anyway, and in this case switching to xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode 1920x1080 didn't fix things. However, it was ...

The problem is with kactivities4. Downgrade it by cding into /var/cache/pacman/pkg cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and installing the previously removed one pacman -U kactivities-4.13.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz I don't know why, but it works :p

TL;DR. I found out where the problem lies! I had to sleep some time between some of the partitioning tasks. Apparently I stumbled upon concurrency issues. In-depth: It looks like when a process completes, it doesn't mean that kernel has already completed it's role in the process (in case kernel has to do something after given process). In my case, that ...

That isn't a conflict. That same thing happened to me today. But that just means that the package has been deprecated and to replace the dependencies of that package, you download that other one.

Arch Linux' kernel has the swap accounting disabled by default (cf. the kernel config file). You can enable it by booting with swapaccount=1 in your kernel cmdline (cf. the kernels Kconfig documentation.

The problem was the IOMMU implementation on my chipset. Apparently the combination of the IOMMU and my audiocard didn't work, after disabling the IOMMU in EFI it magically worked.

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 ...
