the one in /usr/lib/modules is actually kind of there as a -save-my-ass-i-broke-it- precaution.

Be safe and do a complete backup before this glibc upgrade. Also, be sure to read this first.

I believe the issue brought up in this thread applies to me, so instead of starting a new thread, I will post here.

Last week I set out to install ArchLinuxARM on to my Pogoplug POGO-B01 (pink colored, ordered recently from Adorama, where it is still on sale, for $24 shipped right now). I followed the instructions here and set it all up. Updating the OS worked as advertised and the Plug was functional with the new ArchLinuxARM OS running on it. The trouble is that for my test I had used a USB HDD that had previously failed in a laptop but had been working fine as a USB external; however, right after I was done with the installation, it died and I had to replace it. I again followed the instructions and obtained the root filesystem archive from the installation page and setup the new USB HDD with it.

Then, I started having the problems described here: the Plug would boot just fine, but as soon as I'd upgrade (pacman -Syu or some other components), it will refuse to boot anymore. I have tried to manually repair following the advice I found here or after searching the 'Net (glibc), but I wasn't successful. My question is: will the tarball at http://archlinuxarm.org/os/ArchLinuxARM ... est.tar.gz be updated (soon) with a fix that will make it work in our situations?

I setup my first Linux box in 1996 (for work, I was IT admin in grad school) but since then I have only dealt with the OS briefly on a few occasions and, thus, haven't kept up with it (who can really?), so even though I am quite knowledgeable (I'm a software developer), I cannot afford to mess with this for too long. I would really like to have a nice and elegant solution so that I can setup my Plug to do the basic tasks I need it to do (for now, just samba). I would really appreciate that. I should also mention that I, too, have offered software I've written for free (with support), so I know how tough it is, which is why I truly appreciate the hard work of the developers involved in this project.

I gave bad advice I'm my other message, it assumed glibc had been installed and broke things.
Plus you have oxnas with /lib/modules to worry about, sorry

What should i do with these files which aren't owned by glibc?
Code: Select all
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/udev'
error: cannot determine ownership of directory '/lib/udev/rules.d'
/lib/udev/rules.d/60-pcmcia.rules is owned by pcmciautils 017-1
/lib/udev/pcmcia-check-broken-cis is owned by pcmciautils 017-1
/lib/udev/pcmcia-socket-startup is owned by pcmciautils 017-1


Should i just move them to /usr/lib?

Thanks karog.

I had to remove these packages to update glib

Code: Select all
kernel26-oxnas-pci
kernel26-oxnas-nopci
pcmciautils


Not sure how to get them back though (or if i need to) seems to boot up fine.

Because of the prior-moved /lib/modules, everything is ok, since the package though they were in /lib/modules.

I plan to have a cleaned up package soon, as well as an up to date rootfs this weekend.

Thanks for all the help guys. Looking forward to the new rootfs package.

I thing I have kind of the same problem.
Last week, after some pacman -Syu sshd suddenly stops to work, but samba was still working. After a (hard)reboot network completely was dead.
To recover, I installed the current rootfs and, too keep my old settings, also the hold /etc. Systems boots up fine, but on

pacman -Syuf

...
( 1/48) upgrading linux-api-headers [######################] 100%
( 2/48) upgrading tzdata [######################] 100%
( 3/48) upgrading glibc [######################] 100%
error: extract: not overwriting dir with file lib
error: problem occurred while upgrading glibc
call to execv failed (No such file or directory)
error: command failed to execute correctly
error: could not commit transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (transaction aborted)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
[root@Homeserver lib]# ls
bash: /bin/ls: No such file or directory



System is completly dead. Only new rootfs helps.

Any ideas ?
