Public Service Announcement: Repositories restructured

As you may have noticed already we have bought the chaox.net 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

[livecd]
Server = http://dev-jenux.homelinux.org/chaox-repo

to

[chaox-stable]
Server = http://repo.chaox.net/stable

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.

[chaox-broken]
Server = http://repo.chaox.net/broken

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/libdri.so exists in filesystem
    xorg-server: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libwfb.so exists in filesystem
    Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

    please help

    Best

  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/libdri.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libwfb.so
