Update: getting i686 packages
There’s now a much better way of getting access to the i686 packages and so keeping your 32-bit system going:
sudo sed -i '/# Branch = /c\Branch = x32-stable' /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf sudo pacman-mirrors -c all sudo pacman -Sy archlinux32-keyring-transition sudo pacman -S archlinux32-keyring sudo pacman -Syu
More details are in the following threads:
Please use the instructions above, not those in the section below.
The rest of this post remains for historical interest. It is out-of-date. Do not follow these instructions now.
As a result of the upcoming cease of Manjaro i686 packages I’m starting my own sub-project to build Manjaro packages from their PKGBUILD sources on GitHub and make them available as an overlay repo for i686 (32-bit systems).
The approach is more light-weight than the standard Manjaro approach so packages will not be tested in the same way. Issues may occur, and things may break entirely when I start building against archlinux32 packages instead of those Manjaro synced from Arch.
What you need to know
At this point in time this setup is entirely untested, hence it being in #manjaro-development not #announcements. Please expect things to break or be broken; if they don’t or are not it will be a pleasant surprise.
If there are any 32-bit Manjaro users still around feel free to test this out and let me know how it goes. Please let me know of any issues, missing packages, etc. etc.
How to use it
The basics are in place and need testing. To “migrate” to manjaro32 you need to add the repo to
[manjaro32] Server = https://repo.manjaro32.org/ [core] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist [extra] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist [community] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
- Switch your
/etc/pacman-mirrors.confmanually to the
- Switch your
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlistcontent to the archlinux32.org mirrors
Option 1 will use the Manjaro-hosted packages synced from archlinux32. Option 2 means you get archlinux32 packages directly.
[manjaro32] is currently the only way to get i686 Manjaro-specific packages (kernels, mhwd, etc.).
Any and all packages will quite likely be out-of-date until we work out the best way to manage this stuff (and who is going to do what).
