Having an issue trying to upgrade my FE/BE 6.04 machine to 7.3 with some odd conflicts when running "sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts"

Any thoughts/pointers would be appreciated...

Code:
[mythtv@HTPC ~]$ sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core                     133.3K  139.9K/s 00:00:01 [#####################################################################################################] 100%
 extra                     82.4K  112.6K/s 00:00:01 [#####################################################################################################] 100%
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: udev conflicts with initscripts. Remove initscripts? [Y/n] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: fbsplash: requires initscripts
:: runit: requires initscripts
:: runit-scripts: requires initscripts
[mythtv@HTPC ~]$ sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: udev conflicts with initscripts. Remove initscripts? [Y/n] n
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: udev: conflicts with initscripts


Code:
[mythtv@HTPC ~]$ sudo pacman -U linhes-scripts-7-41-i686.pkg.tar.xz
loading package data...
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: linhes-scripts: requires screen
:: linhes-scripts: requires mencoder
:: linhes-scripts: requires tablet-encode
:: linhes-scripts: requires normalize
:: linhes-scripts: requires handbrake-cli
:: linhes-scripts: requires mkvtoolnix


##EDIT: OK, so I'm still a bit stuck here, I don't really want to unnecessarily grenade my current 6.04 install (which works pretty good)...

I can see this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=77647, which seems likely considering I'm a few upgrades behind??

Maybe the:
Code:
sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts
has got me when Arch in my state of upgrade (6.04 => 7.3) requires a:
Code:
sudo pacman -Syu


But will that pull the pin out of the previously mentioned grenade?!


HTD.

I'm still unsure about my best course of action here...

Due to the udev/initscripts conflict it appears necessary (link above) to do a conventional ArchLinux style system upgrade ("pacman -Syu"), but LinHES is not "just" Arch, and if that was all that was needed, Cecil's upgrade instructions wouldn't be:

Code:
sudo sv stop frontend
sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts
sudo upgrade_linhes.sh


"sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts" seems not possible?

Has anyone else managed to upgrade in this way from 6.04 to 7.3??

HTD.

I do recall that you need to go to 6.4 before upgrading to 7

R6.04.00 was the last of the 6's I thought?

That is correct 6.04 was the last of the R6 releases.

As I recall there are changes that occur during the online upgrade from 6.03 to 6.04 that need to be done prior to upgrading to R7

Your could try the online upgrade or download the 6.04 iso Either way make sure you do a backup first.

If you want so do it online
Code:
Make sure that your pacman.conf is pointed to

[core]
http://linhes.org/repo/i686/R6/core
[extra]
http://linhes.org/repo/i686/R6/extra

Update linhes-scripts  to  linhes-scripts-1-77-i686.pkg.tar.gz
pacman -Sy linhes-scripts
sudo upgrade_linhes.sh

Or you can do the update from the ISO

This post addressed a problem getting around a problem where linhes-scripts wouldn't update
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=22641
Code:
If "pacman -Sy linhes-scripts" fails, then try pacman -Syyyyyyyyyy linhes-scripts. The exact number of "y" doesn't matter, just need more then two.


Good luck.

Code:
pacman -Syy
Will re-update your repository database if your install can't see the required linhes-scripts, but you (I anyway...) still can't get past those udev/initscript conflicts once you switch pacman over from the 6.04 repositories to the 7.3 ones and try and install it. :(

Assuming it's not just all embarrassing user error on my part, would it be viable to extract the relevant upgrade scripts out of the linhes-scripts package, copy them over by hand an run upgrade_linhes.sh? Certain disaster??

Harveythedog,

Since you are already at 6.04 I think Id opt for an ISO upgrade.

I think that's probably good advice tscholl.

I was guessing someone clever would roll their eyes upon seeing my predicament and let the simple and painfully obvious solution out of the bag......

The Wiki's Upgrade page might need tweaking too if it's not user error.

Just an FYI I couldn't download the linhes-scrpits because it had a dependency of normalize which wasn't in the /i686/R6/extra it was in the /i686/extra.
