User:NoobCp/2012-07 upgrade

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Gradual staged upgrade of my Arch system from 2012-05 to 2012-07-29 using https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Downgrading_Packages#ARM as a repository. Mostly using ARM states from the day after the big Arch changes. These upgrades are applied from 2012-07-29 and onwards.

The upgrade command to use after each change to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist is
pacmatic -Suuyy
for downgrade enabled synch, I think.

Process plan

Warm-up

2012-05-10

First to verify the whole process works disable other mirrors and add:

/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
http://arm.konnichi.com/2012/05/10/$repo/os/$arch

Just an arbritrary date a bit after the last pacmatic -Suy.

Modernization

2012-05-14

Secondly to set-up the new netcfg changes brought by May 13.

2012-06-02

The changes from June 1.

Not to forget "mkinitcpio -p linux" after that one!

Pacman keys: possibly not that big a change yet, perhaps jumping over this stop.

2012-06-08

Filesystem.

2012-06-15

Glibc.

A little guide to help me through this.

Finishing up

Upgrading to Grub2, which is possibly not too urgent can wait after the system is back to normal synch after re-enabling the normal repositories in

/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

pacmatic -Suyy and I'm done.
