to all interested.

I am aware not to do any more testing but thought this is relevant. There is a bug in current pman AFAIK with it detection of read write permissions

Code: Select all

pman -S gnutls
(snip)
ERROR: Module directory is not mounted or unwritable. 
Check your module config file for ModuleDirctory=

The following modules were copied to your modules folder:

modules is read write but ERROR: Module directory is not mounted or unwritable. says its not

AND look at the difference in modules created please.

Code: Select all

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2822144 Oct  4 18:15 glibc-locales-uni.xzm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1077248 Nov 10 23:21 gnutls-3.4.6-1-x86_64.pkg.xzm
The first one is using firstrun, versus the bottom one which was created by booting up with no changes and used
pman -S gnutls
