Jump to: navigation, search

Gradual staged upgrade of my Arch system from 2012-05 to 2012-07-29 using 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


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


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


Secondly to set-up the new netcfg changes brought by May 13.$repo/os/$arch


The changes from June 1.$repo/os/$arch

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