Re: pacman -Syu : error glibc : /lib is already there...

by drirr » Sat Sep 15, 2012 10:54 am Check if you have a modules folder lingering in your /lib/ containing data for an old kernel. I had a 3.1.9-10+ directory that I had to remove (and then rmdir on /lib/modules/). Here is the out put of ls -l /lib: total 3112 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 155557 Jul 8 20...

Re: Problems with pacman -Syu

Hi

Thanks for the reply. pacman -S libcups did not work but deleting the files that I renamed did work. Thanks everyone for the help.

Thanks

It went throught ok but I got the following out put at the end: (6/6) upgrading libcups [##############...

Re: USB hard drive not recognised

Google Translate did a pretty good job on the German text. That is pretty much the result I get. Glad it is not just me having the problems. For me I am going to abandon raid and go with a cron job running rsync to copy the contents from one drive to the other. For me this will be ok as I will be us...

Re: USB hard drive not recognised

Hi I have been doing a bit more experimentation. I have reformatted both the hard drives to ext4. I have then mounted them and tested out writing to both of them are the same time. So I ran the following 2 commands in 2 seperate screen sessions running at the same time: dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/sdb1/...

Re: USB hard drive not recognised

Hi I probably should have said that turning my Pi off and on again and I could log in fine. Thank you for the reply. I have run check disk on the root file system (ext4) and that is fine. Could this have something to do with me having set up software (mdadm) raid level 1 on the 2 hard drives set up ...

Hi In /boot/cmdline.txt add smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N (requires reboot) This was already set like this. In /etc/sysctl.conf change vm.min_free_kbytes=16384 (requires reboot) I have just set this and rebooted. I have also changed the enclosures that I am using for the Seagate hard drives.

Re: USB hard drive not recognised

Hi Thanks for the reply. I have checked the /boot/cmdline.txt and smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N is in there. I had already looked for that from another post I found searching the forum. I'm not sure what I have in my /etc/sysctl.conf as I am at work now but will check when I get home. I forgot to mention th...

Re: USB hard drive not recognised

Hi Sorry to reply to mu own post but I thought I would add more information. I have just tried to connect an external 3.5in external hard drive directly to my Pi.
