not much use without a functioning development module...

there are ways and there are ways
depending on what is where... so not build anew but upgrade individually:
myself: how i do it: for example: (note i dont use changes at all)
when i do pacman -Syu
i stop(n) and cross check each module via /mnt/live/memory/images/<module>.xzm/var/lib/pacman/local/
to find which package belongs in which module...
<package(S)toupgrade> is in module foo.xzm
# xzm2dir /path/to/foo.xzm /tmp/foo (i keep each module extracted (in a dedicated partition) to apply the update to, before compressing it(good idea if you have big modules and small ram))
# cp /var/ib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION /tmp/foo /var/ib/pacman/local/ (to enable package installation)
# pacman -Sw <package(s)toupgrade (this downloads to cache but doesnt install(make sure there are no other packages in there)
# pacman -Uddr /tmp/foo /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.pkg.tar.xz (installs any package in the cache to /tmp/foo)
# rm /tmp/foo/var/ib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION (not needed any more)
# cd /tmp
# dir2xzm tmp/foo foo.xzm (then replace your old modlue with this)
# rm /var/cache/pacman/pkg/* (clean the cache before doing the next module)
your changes folder should (mostly)only be a problem if it has programs installed into it, that are in other modules...
Code: Select all
cryptsetup: /usr/bin/cryptsetup exists in filesystem
# pacman -Qo /usr/bin/cryptsetup tells me: error: No package owns /usr/bin/cryptsetup
further investigation shows the it is in the kernel.xzm, unattached to a package...
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core ... ryptsetup/
make me wonder what you have installed that requires cryptsetup package...
# pacman -Qi cryptsetup should tell you in the 'Required By:" line
likewise, networkmanager is in the core module and should be up to date... find and remove it from your module or changes(but not core):
#pacman -Rddr /tmp/foo networkmanager (where /tmp/foo is your extracted module)
if its in changes, then boot without changes(alway fresh) and:
pacman -Rddr /path /to/changes networkmanager
in both cases you (may) need to copy the /var/ib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION from your live system first...
as of today, the outstanding package upgrades are:
gui: mhwd mhwd-db xterm

this could have something to do with elogind replacing consolekit
