The zita-resampler 1.6.0-1 package was missing a library symlink that has been readded in 1.6.0-2. If you installed 1.6.0-1, ldconfig would have created this symlink at install time, and it will conflict with the one included in 1.6.0-2. In that case, remove /usr/lib/libzita-resampler.so.1 manually before updating.
A simple, lightweight distribution
You've reached the website for Arch Linux, a lightweight and flexible Linux® distribution that tries to Keep It Simple.
Currently we have official packages optimized for the x86-64 architecture. We complement our official package sets with a community-operated package repository that grows in size and quality each and every day.
Our strong community is diverse and helpful, and we pride ourselves on the range of skillsets and uses for Arch that stem from it. Please check out our forums and mailing lists to get your feet wet. Also glance through our wiki if you want to learn more about Arch.
Following 9 months of deprecation period, support for the i686 architecture effectively ends today. By the end of November, i686 packages will be removed from our mirrors and later from the packages archive. The [multilib] repository is not affected.
For users unable to upgrade their hardware to x86_64, an alternative is a community maintained fork named Arch Linux 32. See their website for details on migrating existing installations.
The perl package now uses a versioned path for compiled modules. This means that modules built for a non-matching perl version will not be loaded any more and must be rebuilt.
A pacman hook warns about affected modules during the upgrade by showing output like this:
WARNING: '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl' contains data from at least 143 packages which will NOT be used by the installed perl interpreter. -> Run the following command to get a list of affected packages: pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl'
You must rebuild all affected packages against the new perl package before you can ...
Due to high maintenance cost of scripts related to the Arch Build
System, we have decided to deprecate the
abs tool and thus rsync
as a way of obtaining PKGBUILDs.
asp tool, available in [extra], provides similar functionality to
asp export pkgname can be used as direct alternative; more
information about its usage can be found in the documentation.
Additionally Subversion sparse checkouts, as described here, can
be used to achieve a similar effect. For fetching all PKGBUILDs, the
best way is cloning the svntogit mirrors.
extra/abs package has been already dropped, the rsync
The upgrade to ca-certificates-utils 20170307-1 requires manual intervention because a symlink which used to be generated post-install has been moved into the package proper.
As deleting the symlink may leave you unable to download packages, perform this upgrade in three steps:
# pacman -Syuw # download packages # rm /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt # remove conflicting file # pacman -Su # perform upgrade
