thanks for that and a question:

I tried to follow the steps on your video,

but when i changed the pacman.conf and tried to update via pacman

i got this error message
error: failed retrieving file 'kernels.db' from mirrors.ustc.edu.cn : The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed to update kernels (unexpected error)


and it s not updating the repos.. what could be wrong with that? I run manjaro linux 64bit...


ps: my pacman.conf looks like this

Code: Select all

#
# /etc/pacman.conf
#
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#
# GENERAL OPTIONS
#
[options]
# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
CacheDir = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir      = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
HoldPkg     = pacman glibc
# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst    = manjaro-system
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
#UseDelta    = 0.7
Architecture = auto

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
#IgnorePkg   =
#IgnoreGroup =

#NoUpgrade   =
#NoExtract   =

# Misc options
#UseSyslog
#Color
#TotalDownload
# We cannot check disk space from within a chroot environment
#CheckSpace
#VerbosePkgLists

# By default, pacman accepts packages signed by keys that its local keyring
# trusts (see pacman-key and its man page), as well as unsigned packages.
SigLevel    = Required DatabaseOptional
LocalFileSigLevel = Optional
#RemoteFileSigLevel = Required

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local
# keyring can then be populated with the keys of all official Manjaro Linux
# packagers with `pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro`.

#
# REPOSITORIES
#   - can be defined here or included from another file
#   - pacman will search repositories in the order defined here
#   - local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files
#   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages
#     have identical names, regardless of version number
#   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture
#
# Repository entries are of the format:
#       [repo-name]
#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
# uncommented to enable the repo.
#

# The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
# repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately
# after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

[core]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

# If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
# enable the multilib repositories as required here.

[multilib]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#parabola community repo
#[pcr]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#[kernels]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


# An example of a custom package repository.  See the pacman manpage for
# tips on creating your own repositories.
#[custom]
#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

Hi calimerox

You forgot to remove the # before pcr and kernels, like this:

Code: Select all


#parabola community repo
[pcr]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[kernels]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


The lines with # in front are not read by the package manager (pacman)

PS: Are you sure that Parabola is what you have, because those repositories and settings are for Parabola only :wink:
If you have Arch consider migrating to Parabola first https://wiki.parabola.nu/Migration
In your case (Manjaro) you should proceed here https://wiki.parabola.nu/Migration_from_Manjaro

Update from 2019:

There is an issue that prevents systemd to properly enable the script to the system. In order to fix it you should edit as root the file /etc/parabola-proaudio-settings.sh like this (comment-out the last line)

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

echo 2048 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/max_user_freq
echo 2048 > /proc/sys/dev/hpet/max-user-freq
cpupower frequency-set -g performance
##echo noop > /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler


Unfortunately i am no longer able to support my parabola-proaudio-settings package, because part of the Parabola developer team, including the guy who packaged my application for Parabola repositories, split up to develop a fork of the distribution called Hyperbola GNU+Linux-libre. I want to make an updated version of this package for Archlinux. If any of you is interested to help me package an updated, expanded and supported archlinux-proaudio-settings package for the AUR, please send me a private message. It will be appreciated, for me and for the Arch musicians community.

Best regards, Totalchaos
