Hi and a question

Hello, thank you for allowing me to join the forum. I've loved Artix so far, except for a few quirks that I'm sure I'll figure out.

I've had some issues with permissions related to a firewire audio interface, but they seem to come and go.  What would be weird until I figured that out was that Audacity would work (sort of) but Reaper wouldn't.  Most of my audio work has been done with Reaper so that is a necessity for me to run it....
    But I immediately downloaded this copy of Artix OpenRC the other day and thought, this thing runs like a dream.  Like what I always imagined Linux would become... and now I've found the forum and I see why.
    I repeatedly have a problem with Pacman trying to update databases, and I tried several things including the sudo pacman -Syu.
I'm used to debian based Distros so some of  this is new to me, but I definately thought watching pacman at the command line was cool.  So... I do it... because no matter what, I can't update the computer.... and I get this

  So basically the same at the end... even displayed it in a window.
My other question is, for real time audio with firewire, Do I need to go to Runit?

Thanks for any help and let me know if I should move this message.

Regarding nss, it looks like you used a bit older ISO, check the Arch news or Artix news.

Regarding artix-base-branding package I would first make a copy (backup) of the file and used same approach as mentioned in news.

Can you be more specific? If you have problem with running `pacman -Sy`   the first thing I can think about is checking your mirrorlists
If you have problems downloading Artix databases (system, world, galaxy, lib32, gremlins*) check:
Code: [Select]
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
If you have problems with Arch repositories (extra, community, multilib, testing*) check:
Code: [Select]
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch
And Un/Comment some mirrors to see if there is some difference

I have no knowledge of these things. It might be worth it to create separate thread for this if noone will be able to help you here.

I used the current ISO from the download page.

So, I did that.  Thinking amazing people have fixes for this on the fly. But.. then at the end:

gonna blow this distro away.  Try the next one... PlasmaRunint.

Do we really need to do even the smallest task for anyone?
Code: [Select]
pacman -Syyu --overwrite  /etc/local.d/0-process_local.d.start
I hoped the explanation "use same approach as mentioned in news would ring the bell"

How about.... when we put ISO's on the release page, we make sure they update the first time its tried, then people don't have to ask what apparently to you is a stupid question.

I am now running the PLASMA.Runit version...  same error:

rror: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
nss: /usr/lib/p11-kit-trust.so exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Press any key to continue...

I realize that this is someones testbed/project.  But an operating system is something that needs to be used, not just tweaked.  I am not here to debug, but to try to use the system Artix is building to do what I want to do... ie. record from firewire in an efficient manner, as other distributions such as Ubuntu Studio have left the firewire people on the wayside.

If I can't get it to work, I delete and move on.  I feel like distro's these days are just people deciding which package they want and throwing it all together still on an ISO.  How about making sure that when you add things, you make sure they work?

But yeah, thanks.  Seems to have fixed the issue so far.

/etc/local.d/0-process_local.d.start was incorporated into artix-branding-base, but the latest weekly ISOs were built before the change, hence the conflict. The fix is trivial and the file contents are the same.

For the record, this file adds /etc/local.d scripts execution support to runit and s6, like in OpenRC.

Use this:
Code: [Select]
pacman -Syyu --overwrite  /etc/local.d/0-process_local.d.start --overwrite /usr/lib\*/p11-kit-trust.so

It was you who decided to go the easy way and use graphical installer with nice GUI all around. There is always nice working clean base ISO, use this instead but you will loose the comfort of the graphical environment.

I did not start with the graphical interface.  No software could be installed from the repos until that was fixed.
