Re: Installing Python Watchdog Module

What locale are you using?

It could also be that watchdog, or rather its dependency "argh" isn't compatible with python 3. You could try installing it via python2:

Code: Select all

pacman -Sy python2 python2-pip
pip2 install watchdog

Re: Installing Python Watchdog Module

I don't think it's a memory issue. It looks like "argh" tries to force non-ascii encoded data (0xc2 or 194 if you prefer non-hexadecimal) as ascii (which has the range 0-127). I've not found any direct matches to your issue, but could it be have non-ascii characters in the path where it is trying to...

Due to license changes[1] most (if not all) Linux distribution have stopped shipping Oracles JDK/JRE. You can grab in from AUR , but you will have to package it yourself.

Re: New to Arch - where is stuff, can I use Arch?

As was already mentioned, you really should give the Arch wiki a good read. As for the AUR stuff, this wiki article explains it pretty well. Not that most packages will have 'i686' and/or 'x86_64' as listed architectures, if you're going to compile those packages manually you'll have to take care of...

Re: no network on reboot

Have you done any configuration in your router or did you just plug the rpi in? If you haven't done anything special you're most likely getting a new ip-address at each reboot. Have a look in the manual to see how you configure a static dhcp lease. That means that you tell the router to reserve an i...

As pepedog mentioned, if you're using dhcp you might getting a new IP-address at each boot. If that's the case and you have your rpi behind a router you should check if you can specify a static lease for it so you always get the same ip-address. If it's exposed directly to the internet and your ISP ...

Yeah, mounting the extra partition under /dev will not let you use it. If possible you should use another machine to resize your root partition instead. It's dead easy if you got another linux machine, just install and start gparted. If not then I'd suggest using a boot cd, check this tutorial out: ...

Re: Tutorial for updating R-Pi firmware in ARCH LINUX

Running "pacman -Syu" periodically and you will get the correctly packaged version whenever it's updated. By sidestepping the normal package management you might end up breaking things.

Is there a specific reason to why you don't prefer the arch packaged firmware updates?

ldd is part of the "glibc" package, which is kinda vital. Have you replaced glibc with something else (uclibc?)? If not, try reinstalling glibc and see if that helps in anyway.

Re: Reduce Arch to a minimum

You can run "pacman -Qdt" (man pacman) to query the database of installed packages for items that were installed as a dependency for some package but aren't needed anymore. You can also run "pacman -Qet" to list all explicitly installed packages and see if there is anything you wish to remove.

Have a look in /etc/cron.d/, I only see a single file there, "0hourly". See if copying that one to 0daily and modifying it to run once a day makes it work. It would be a very odd way of administration cron though.

If that's not the case, then it might be the mirror is not done syncing, in which case it should solve itself in a few hours.
