OUTDATED

This thread is outdated. Don't use these instructions for later isos

These instructions are for the 2011.11 release. It is highly recommended now to use the new updated unofficial March release to overcome all these steps in the deprecated 2011.11 release. The new March release links are here: http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=2455. This thread is closed and these post-install instructions are no longer supported in the Forums.

ArchVortex - March 24, 2012


I just did another fresh install on one of my computers and here's what I did to make things go smoother:

Step 1. as root update the mirrors and repositories

# pacman -Syy

Step 2. update pacman. You will be upgraded to pacman 4

# pacman -S pacman 

Step 3. initialize keys

# pacman-key --init

move your mouse or cursor around to generate entropy for key initialization

Step 4. merge pacman.conf file with pacman.conf.pacnew

Go to /etc folder

# cd /etc 

Backup your pacman.conf

# sudo mv /etc/pacman.conf ~/pacman.conf.backup 

Move pacman.conf.pacnew to pacman.conf

# sudo mv pacman.conf.pacnew pacman.conf 

Step 5. Import all the signature keys of the TU/Devs

#  nano /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf 

and change the keyserver line to

keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:11371

and then input in your terminal as root:

curl https://www.archlinux.org/{developers,trustedusers}/ |
awk -F\" '(/pgp.mit.edu/) {sub(/.*search=0x/,"");print $1}' |
xargs pacman-key --recv-keys

and you will import all the keys. There still maybe one or two keys you will pick up as you add packages later.

Step 6. Update/Upgrade ArchBang

# pacman -Syuf 

and the upgrade will begin. Notice that the -f flag has been added to -Syu. This is to force filesystem to upgrade. Forcing a large number of packages is usually never a good idea but in this case we know the other packages are okay and the force is needed to upgrade filesystem. You might also want to grab your favorite beverage and a sandwich as over 3 months have passed since the last release and around 400 packages need to be updated.

Step 7. While you are waiting for the upgrading you can open another terminal and remove locale.sh from profile.d in /etc/

# rm /etc/profile.d/locale.sh

Step 8. When the package updates have finished and it's time to install, you will be asked to change from module-init-tools to kmod so enter Y for yes.

And then wait for the packages to load and upgrade.

Step 9. If you are using the 2011.11 release, cairo-ubuntu is going to require updating so you don't get a libpng problem.

# sudo packer -S cairo-ubuntu

will update cairo-ubuntu and everything should be hunky dory (I hope). And finally:

Step 10.

# sudo packer -S packer

to update Packer.

Step 11. You may need to re-install udev and linux. Personally I just did an install (Feb 14th 7.00 pm WIT) and had no problems with the previous instructions. If you get a udev error when generating the kernel image during the update then:

# pacman -S udev 

and then

# pacman -S linux

Do this before you reboot. Thanks to our AB Artist Conker1r for the tip.

This post will be updated as required. Hope this helps makes a smoother installation for you folks. Thanks to monacelli for the packer tip and Badener for the keen eye!!

Note: Your SigLevel will be "SigLevel = Never" in your pacman.conf file. I will LTTU as to what you decide to set your SigLevel at.

Upgrades to Pacman 4 remove ILoveCandy. If you want the visual Pacman back in your terminal eating powerpills while downloading packages instead of the default # then add ILoveCandy under Misc options in your /etc/ pacman.conf so it looks like this:

# Misc options
#UseSyslog
#UseDelta
#TotalDownload
CheckSpace
#VerbosePkgLists
ILoveCandy

And remember "All your ArchBang are belong to us"  wink

Are there any reasons not to make this into a welcome script ?

echo "Welcome to the AB upgrade made painless script"
echo "We'll begin by ranking your mirrors" 
sudo /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist > /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.backup
sudo rankmirrors -n 10 /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.backup > /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
echo "Updating repositories"
sudo pacman -Syy
echo "Updating pacman"
sudo pacman -S pacman
pacman-key --init
sudo mv /etc/pacman.conf ~/pacman.conf.backup 
sudo mv pacman.conf.pacnew pacman.conf 
...

and so on...

Passing two --refresh or -y flags forces pacman to refresh all package lists even if they are considered to be up to date. Issuing pacman -Syy whenever changing to a new mirror is good practice and will avoid possible issues.

Re: OUTDATED

I completed the script. Is there anything wrong with it ? Now that I looked at things more carefully, I can't understand why I'm updating packer after I just updated everything including packer and cairo-ubuntu.

run as root ! but check for errors first !

echo "We'll begin by ranking your mirrors"

echo "   DONE"
echo ""
echo "   Ready to force upgrade, grab some coffee"
echo "...when asked to changed from module-init-tools to kmod, press Y to change"
sleep 2
#you could try installing these first
pacman -Sf filesystem
pacman -Syuf
pacman -S udev linux
packer -S packer cairo-ubuntu
echo "   SYSTEM UPDATED SUCCESFULLY"
echo "----"
echo ""
echo "Please give feedback if you used this script"
read -p "do you love candy ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] && sed -i "s/Misc options.*$/&\nILoveCandy/" /etc/pacman.conf
read -p "would you like to remove locale.sh ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] && sudo rm /etc/profile.d/locale.sh
read -p "update aur ? ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] && sudo packer -Suu --auronly --noconfirm 

updated: after testing my script twice, I am now without a pacman.conf file... :))
So now I modified the script to use the interactive mode "mv -i" and also tried to make it more human readable, but use at your own risk.

There's something wrong about the last two steps so I commented them out.

update: working entropy generator, removed sudos.
update: further errors corrected. we now love candy too. thank you oliver !
update: installing udev and linux comes definitely after upgrade, script changed accordingly

Re: OUTDATED

Just finished building and testing a new updated unofficial release ArchBang .iso so those who will be using the new .iso won't need this thread when it's released this week.

packer and cairo-ubuntu are in Aur not Arch repos hence the need to update you could run packer -Syu ?

Would explain candy as well, not everyone will understand what it means

gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 6: Could not resolve host: pgp.met.edu; Name or service not known

Re: OUTDATED

Alright, I just upgraded using my script. I had a few surprises.

/home/user/update.sh: line 28: yuf: command not found

Which is wierd.

Can the community benefit from my complete error log ?... if so, where should I post it ? Meanwhile, this part looks nasty... did my script fail to force ?

Re: OUTDATED

You might be wise to run a script like that under virtualbox to test first rather than your own system.

check your syntax on line 28 yuf I assume is meant to be -Syuf [look for a space]

Re: OUTDATED

Agreed it would be.
But it is -Syuf. No space. What happened ? What's wrong with the script ?

(Also, how can I force reinstalling the packages ? pacman claims there's nothing to do...)

Re: OUTDATED

There's an update warning regarding the filesystem, it should be forced manually. It could be two things that happened. Either the script didn't take the -f into account, or it didn't work anyway.

Could it be advisable to install the filesystem before upgrading, as an extra step ? or did my script actually forget to force the upgrade despite the lack of any typo/space...?

sudo pacman -S filesystem --force

Re: OUTDATED

cp /udev/urandom

Can you check that is working you ?

Getting keys was fun under virtualbox but it did work in the end.

Arch repo update was fine

Packer would not update but Cairo-ubuntu did without a problem

Take a look at packer options [-h] there is a --noconfirm --noedit and --auronly that you can add to the mix

One other thing

sed  's/^(sleep 3/#(sleep 3/g' autostart 

Knock out first line of autostart to stop dual network icons [check my syntax!]

Re: OUTDATED

Well sed Mr Green!

No doesn't work.
It seems it's rather /dev/urandom or /dev/random. but i'm still not sure whether the way to do this is not rather:

/dev/urandom > /dev/null

or something else. You say update was fine ?... I'm pulling virtualbox ASAP. I'm sick of reinstalling.

Re: OUTDATED

It took ages for keys to load, and start update but everything loaded after that.

Take the time to set up virtualbox its worth it in the end

Of course anything under a virtual machine is going to run slower, really depends on your system specs.

Still hoping Archbang update iso will solve many of these problems.

Re: OUTDATED

after this tutorial I had udev errors and broke my machine.
after a reinstall
I updated again. but the second time.
I had to reinstall udev first and then linux again
or it would give a Error: parsing hook udev not found.
The archbang img would not generate and I would not be able to boot.

So watch for any errors.

Re: OUTDATED

Yup, same thing happened to me, I'm a little disheartened. Was a package updated since this thread went up that is breaking something?

Ok, I've sucked it up, reinstalled again, and did the list, stopping after step 5, and I'll wait til somebody says it's ok to go ahead.

Quick question - I understand that this will happen from time to time, and it's the price of running a rolling, bleeding edge distribution. Does it happen a lot? I ask merely for information. ;-)

It happens time to time, like once a month something go wrong with updates. Usually they are easy to fix (like 30sec job) and everything works again. Always read update warning before updating.

Re: OUTDATED

Already? Ok, giving pacman -Syuf a whirl...I'll report back.

Heh...ok, done. The openbox menu no longer works...let's see what happens when I reboot.

Aaaaand I'm a sucker.

Now why would you tell me it's ok to go ahead and update when it's not, mastis?

Reinstall Again.
Update the system (again).
After the update.

packer -S cairo-ubuntu

::this will fix your menu problems as well as other problems::
Next:

pacman -S udev
pacman -S linux

make sure to do this in order And before you reboot the machine or Archbang will not boot.
I learned this the hard way. So I hope it will help you and others with this problem.

By the way, this only needs to be done if you get a udev error when generating the kernel image during the update
if you don't get that error then you're ok.

Re: OUTDATED

Thanks, Conker1r, that did the trick. Although when it boots, now, it's hanging on the 4th line:

waiting for UDev uevents to be processed

for about 30 seconds, which it hasn't done before. Then it says something was terminated with signal 9, but it goes by too fast too see what it was. It doesn't seem to affect the system at all, but it's odd, and I thought I would note it.

mastis - I'm sure you didn't intentionally sucker me into hosing my system, but the problem just started tonight. If you did your installation before the problem cropped up, it's a little irresponsible to tell people that the problem has been fixed.

Re: OUTDATED

I just installed AB. All works well when i follow the introductions.

Atleast i can help you now:
1. Check what module hangs on UDev.
2. Add that module to rc.conf modules section and boot.

Re: OUTDATED

thanks Conker1r

I included the 2 commands after the full upgrade with pacman and cairo-ubuntu with packer

pacman -S udev
pacman -S linux

I had no error with udev.

I reboot normally and it works for me
I think it would be nice to add these two lines to the tutorial

Re: OUTDATED

For some reason udev gets corrupt (?uninstalled) during the update and the subsequent kernel update fails because mkinitcpio cannot find the udev hook. Therefore a hint about re-installing (first!) udev and (then) linux will be life-saving as many machines (incl. mine) can remain unbootable (with the ERROR: Unable to find root device) if these are not performed.

Re: OUTDATED

New udev181-3, linux 3.2.6-1 and xorg packages coming through to hopefully fix the latest udev/linux problems. Just had a fresh install fail in a big way. Recommend holding off doing an install until the new packages come through and we can do a test install to see if everything is all right and which steps are still required or if new ones need to be added.

Re: OUTDATED

I'm ready to give it another try. I have my partition backed up this time and I'd like to advise everybody that you can do a backup of your partition with dd and than restore it in 5 minutes if anything goes wrong. This way, you can test upgrading on your own machine, not inside a virtual machine.

Since last time I got errors with the filesystem, I went ahead and upgraded it first. No errors this time. Which is promissing. I guess I'll be able to boot this time. But...

( 58/276) upgrading gdk-pixbuf2                    [######################] 100%

I installed ubuntu-cairo and I can start leafpad again ! A few days ago this didn't work... Hurray ! smile

On the other hand...

So I installed udev and linux, no errors this time.

I'd say it's safe to go.

Question: Could it be that things are simply installed in the wrong order ? What if you'd update like this ?:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S pacman
#dealing with keys....
...
#updating
sudo pacman -Sf fileysystem udev linux 
sudo packer -S --noconfirm --noedit cairo-ubuntu
sudo pacman -Syuf
#thanks to MrGreen for the tip:
sudo packer -Syu --auronly --noconfirm --noedit

Edit: packer doesn't updgrade

error: The requested URL returned error: 403 while accessing http://github.com/bruenig/packer.git/info/refs
fatal: HTTP request failed
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

The build failed.

Edit: after updateing "auronly" packages, I was able to reinstall packer too.

While 4xx status codes are in response to a client request, the server is saying you're forbidden to access the file (i.e. different to unauthorized)....  I would guess this was not a script error but a github error

Re: OUTDATED

First of all, ArchVortex, thank you for this beautiful tutorial. I was 2 minutes away from abandoning ArchBang altogether after 3 failed installations, but I was lucky enough to run into this tutorial :-)

Next, you have several superfluous sudos (you told us to go root in the first step).

And then... while doing packer -S cairo-ubuntu, I get:

curl: (7) couldn't connect to host

I also have some other problems, like:
a) I lost my panel
b) Main menu -> Applications fails with "Invalid output from pipe-menu "openbox-menu""
but, if I understood correctly, those are consequences of not having cairo-ubuntu, right?

Kind regards,
dijxtra

Re: OUTDATED

Hahaha!! The 'sudo' instructions come from other contributors. I NEVER use sudo but that's just 'my opinion'. If you are using Arch then you certainly should be advanced enough not to have to use 'sudo training wheels' and worry about what you do as "root." Again, just my opinion. I imagine some Ubumtu users will get mad and threaten to sudo apt-get me wink

I don't use 'cairo-ubuntu' so I haven't experienced the problem with curl but usually that's a temporary thing with curl. You might even try re-installing curl and see if that works.

Correct, cairo-ubuntu is probably responsible for the pipe menu problem.

Is your tint2rc still in /.config/tint2 in your home folder?  Is there a # in front of tint2 & in your autostart? If your tint2 has disappeared you can get the default here http://pastebin.com/7iGK093T

Re: OUTDATED

My apologies dijxtra, I was trying to put something together in order to be helpful.
I'm not sure it worked out at all... but if sudo's are the only problem, hurray. I'm just a noob trying hard anyway.
Thus, I also don't understand how ArchVortex's AB is cairo-ubuntu free, if I have to install it after an upgrade for my system to work at all. Does cairo-xcb do the job as well ?

update: updated the script. any feedback appreciated. now /dev/urandom is actually generating entropy

I'm clumsy. And, I come from industry where they brainwash you with defence in depth. So the first package I install on a brand new vanilla arch is sudo. I'm glad to see that archbang has it by default. If only it also had emacs instead that editor of the beast... :-D

So, how do you render your Main menu?

Nope.

ArchVortex wrote:

My tint2 did disapear, but my ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc didn't disappear. Go figure.

There are also some other issues I figured out only after sending this post:
1. Super + w does nothing, bash says: "firefox not found" and "aurora not found"
2. this:

$ emacs
emacs: error while loading shared libraries: libpgn14.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
$ leafpad
leafpad: error while loading shared libraries: libpgn14.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is a brand new installation. I installed archbang, then did the procedure outlined in top post in this thread, and then installed emacs. That's all I did. I'm working in VirtualBox virtual machine, if it's of any relevance.

Archbang is the perfect distro for my old desktop machine. I'd hate to have to go through vanilla arch and then setting up openbox manually. Can we please figure this out together? :-D

It could be cairo-ubuntu free as it could be an older installation and possibly removed it or if I remember correctly the ubuntu font was not implemented until this latest iso.

Re: OUTDATED

I don't use the latest AB menu which is why I'm not affected. I use a modified menu from the 2011.02 release. My menu is old skool ArchBang and I like it that way.  No icons and no pipe-menus. You can download my menu.xml here at http://pastebin.com/ft6JwSst If you want pipe-menus and icons to add to the menu you can do use by following the instructions at http://wiki.archbang.org/index.php?titl … ur_OB_Menu And here a view of my menu

There's something wrong about the last two steps so I commented them out.

Do you mean these lines?

read -p "do you love candy ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] || ILoveCandy >> /etc/pacman.conf
read -p "would you like to remove locale.sh ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] || sudo rm /etc/profile.d/locale.sh

If so, I think you want && rather than ||
I.e. if the answer is "y" you want to execute the next part.  (The first one is also missing an 'echo' in front of ILoveCandy.)  In saying that, I'm not sure if just adding ILoveCandy will work since it will come after the repo definitions.  You might want to play around with sed

Something like:

read -p "do you love candy ? (y or n)?"
[ "$REPLY" == "y" ] && sed -i "s/Misc options.*$/&\nILoveCandy/" /etc/pacman.conf

Can't say I'm 100% thrilled about this solution though because it assumes there is a line in pacman.conf containing "Misc options"

The command means: find a line with Misc options ( /Misc options.*$) and add a new line ( \n) then add ILoveCandy.  So it should appear on the very next line

Re: OUTDATED

Thanks!  So glad I found this tutorial.  I decided to try Archbang because I'm relatively new to linux (at least compared to most Arch users) and when I installed regular Arch I could not get the desktop working smooth.  Probably because I wanted a lighter weight desktop and tried E17.

Anyways, after I ran the upgrade and saw warnings for udev (and basically everything else mentioned here) I thought I was going to be back to square one.  Thanks for all your help.  I came back to Arch for this reason.  Seems to have the best/most supportive community.

Hi,

This how to breaks my system... after I reboot, my box starts to act up.. Apps stop working and even doing sudo su hangs. I can do su, but doing killall whatever_app doesn't do anything. I have no idea what to do next, re installed but doing pacman -Syu finds conflits...

Something strange also happens, while firefox/chromium says it s connecting to the website for ages, i still can do ping's. at that time clicking in the nm-applet hangs everything..

Any ideas?

Running on my laptop: intel T7600 - ati x1600 - 2gb ram, asus z96j


Thanks in advance

Hallo from Italy and from a girl : -)
Excuse my English not very correct.
I followed your instructions, but I was wrong about something, I cannot reboot my new system, so I would like to try again... My question is: can I keep my original kernel (now I'm using the last ISO downloaded from the Archbang site, is it installed on my PC) together the new, update kernel? I would like choose from the new and old kernel at the grub's prompt. Before update all, I wait your nice reply. Many, many thanks! Ciao!

Re: OUTDATED

One thing on this post-install, and something I ran into a few times in my recent clean installs of Arch Bang - when you do the pacman-key --init step, you often get a complaint about not enough randomness. There's a long thread on the Arch forums about someone just not getting it:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=137601

Just make sure you move the mouse around and do a few things like open a terminal window or something. It doesn't take long. At least with ArchBang you have a GUI and a mouse, which makes being random a lot easier smile

the simplest way to get an alternative kernel, might not be to struggle to keep the old, but getting this one from the repo:

core/linux-lts 3.0.23-1
    The Linux Kernel and modules - stable longtime supported kernel package suitable for servers

If pacman doesn't update grub for you installing the kernel, you'll need to run "update-grub" as well.

Edit: Since you failed to reboot, I'd like to remind you to make sure that updateing kmod and linux are last in the row.

Re: OUTDATED

@paola from paolo:
Installing the kernel-lts is quite a good suggestion, you can edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst  file with a text editor and add the lts kernel:
title      ArchBang Linux LTS kernel
root       (hd0,10)
kernel     /boot/vmlinuz-linux-lts root=/dev/sda11 ro noresume 4
initrd     /boot/initramfs-linux-lts.img

Change the partition to your own set up of course: sda11 is hd0,10
Use the
blkid
command to find out on which partition your installation is.

Re: OUTDATED

Just did an install with ArchBang 2011.09 and completed the instructions without any problems.

TIP: This is if you have an existing Arch/ArchBang system. To cut down on update download time when doing fresh installs, I maintain a folder with all the packages on my system. Every two days I update the folder so I have the most recent package versions in the folder. When doing a fresh install, I just drop all the packages into /var/cache/pacman/pkg and update. Then it's just a matter of downloading a few small packages instead of hundreds of MBs of downloads plus all your favourite packages.

I'm fond of these simple tips; and this might be for some people very useful; something for the wiki?

Re: OUTDATED

Only thing I can think of is possibly rsync pkgs to an external drive for a little bit more portability....

Most of this assumes you are running Arch in the first place.

But for us iso builders it would make a lot of sense smile

Re: OUTDATED

Can rule out hooks as they have not changed from 2011 to 2012, will check package list.

Thing is I have not changed anything under the hood with Archbang so that it is in line with 2011 version that said something has broken along the way.

If you have an up to date system working [b43] really difficult to pin down.

Did boot stop at udev or network, modules?

Re: OUTDATED

I don't have an idea, but I suppose the firmware error message sould be related to the module. Right?

Re: OUTDATED

...
It is highly recommended now to use the new updated unofficial March release to overcome all these steps in the deprecated 2011.11 release.
...

Well, now I noticed that my notes about boot problems with the March ISO release have been moved to anothe thread. However, I would not recommend using the March ISO on a laptop with the Broadcom BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02).
