Public Service Announcement: Repositories restructured

As you may have noticed already we have bought the domain. We used this opportunity to restructure the repositories. The standard livecd repo has been renamed to chaox-stable in your pacman.conf you’ll have to change

Server =


Server =

However don’t get too worried, the old repo will continue to work until we can’t see anyone using it any more :)
The brave/stupid/adventurous can also try the new testing repo. However be warned it will break! If you can’t fix it yourself/provide decent bugreports, don’t bother! The broken repo only contains packages which haven’t been tested, you have to use it together with [chaox-stable]. Add the following lines above the [chaox-stable] repo.

Thank you for your attention :)

  1. Hi,

    I like to upgrade with – pacman -Syu – but i get some errors:

    error: could not prepare transaction
    error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
    xorg-server: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/ exists in filesystem
    xorg-server: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ exists in filesystem
    Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

    please help


  2. I had this error too, I don’t think it’s Chaox related, but a general Arch Linux problem, as this happened on vanilla arch. Just remove the violating files:
    sudo rm /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/
