Re: dblatex

Hello Mircea,
just for information. Your tip was quite the right one. After
compiling the program again all works pretty good.

best wishes from germany

Hi,

Compiling the program again? What did you change (I assume in 
the ./configure)?

If the change is important, could you please notifiy the maintainer of the 
package in AUR* so that more people would benefit from it?

Can I kill a pacman -S with impunity?

Often I will do a pacman -S which will saturate my (slow) network connection
and then I will decide I want to visit web pages and then I'll ^C the pacman -S
process so I don't have to wait forever.

How likely is it that sending ^C to a pacman -S will if done often enough
mess up some database or file critical to pacman?

I do it quite often and so far everything works fine. But I never do
it during the actual installation of software. Only during downloads.

As soon as you cancell the program while downloading no harm to your system 
will happen. Perhaps you'll get some corrupted packages which won't install, 
but then you'll just have to download them again (deleting the corrupted 
packages previously) and that's it!

Warning: Upcoming dbus upgrade will kill outdated gnome sessions

We're planning to upgrade dbus to 1.0.x in a short while. The new
configuration files used by dbus 1.0.x is incompatible with the version
in our repositories, which causes dbus to crash as soon as it tries to
reload the configuration.

Due to a bug in gnome-session and the XFCE Terminal program, these
programs will crash together with dbus. This bug has been fixed on
Januari 23 in both gnome-session and Terminal.

When upgrading your system to dbus 1.0.x from either XFCE Terminal or
Gnome with the affected packages dated before Januari 23rd, be warned
that you will lose all unsaved work affected by these crashes
(gnome-session drops to the console and hard-quits all your active
programs, Terminal only kills all active Terminal sessions). A solution
is to upgrade from outside of these programs, or, to upgrade to the
latest versions of these packages, restarting these programs and then
upgrade dbus.

Re: Warning: Upcoming dbus upgrade will kill outdated gnome sessions

What version of Terminal specifically? Is the bug fixed in 0.2.6?

I always pacman -Syu with Terminal so I'm a bit worried.

Ah, thanks. I wanted the version number because I might not have been
100% up to date.

(I top posted again, my deepest apologies.)
