Hi ARM Community!
Today we where lucky and proud to become part of the big Manjaro x64 mirror infrastructure.
Really awesome to have this happen, just before we get shipped as default OS on the Pinebook Pro.
This will help a lot with mirror available to all the new users we will get.
This means, that the old mirror you have will no longer get updated and you need to perform these steps to get onto the new mirrors.
Be aware that it might take all weekend for all mirrors to get the aarch64 packages.
Manual Intervention Required
To get on the new mirrors you simply have to do this.
- Edit your
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlistfile, so only this line is present:
Server = https://manjaro.moson.eu/arm-stable/$repo/$arch
- Now run a complete update and database sync with this command:
sudo pacman -Syyu
- Download the new
pacman-mirrorspackage and a new dependency:
wget https://manjaro.moson.eu/arm-unstable/core/aarch64/pacman-mirrors-4.16.5-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz && wget https://manjaro.moson.eu/arm-unstable/community/aarch64/python-npyscreen-4.10.5-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
- Install it:
sudo pacman -U pacman-mirrors-4.16.5-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz python-npyscreen-4.10.5-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
- If this file exists
/etc/pacman-mirrors-new-$DATE.confmove the file:
sudo mv /etc/pacman-mirrors-new-*.conf /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf
- Update your mirrorlist and system:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu
Your branch is set to
arm-stable by default. If you want to change to
arm-unstable to help with testing packages before they reach
stable, please edit
/etc/pacman-mirrors.conf, uncomment the
# Branch = Stable line and change it to the branch you want.
New image releases will follow soon, probably within a week, where this change is already included.
Thank you all for your understanding and gratitude towards this small project, that just got to be part of something bigger.
If you have any issues with the above instructions, please post the issue in this thread and we will help you get through this.
