Check if your mirror has already synced:


During the update i got the warning that 2

WARNING: ‘/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl’ contains data from at least 2 packages which will NOT be used by the installed perl interpreter.
-> Run the following command to get a list of affected packages: pacman -Qqo ‘/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl’

When I ran the command I got:


The first is from AUR and I rebuilt it. The second is from the repository and is maintained by @oberon.


Thanks. Will rebuild perl-linux-desktopfiles

edit: updated to perl-linux-desktopfiles-0.13


Two AUR packages for me:

$ pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl'

(both deps of imapsync, so pacaur -S --rebuild --foreign will fix - except perl-ntlm appears to have ‘issues’)

And an “extra” file:

$ LC_ALL=C find "/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl" -type f -exec pacman -Qqo {} + |& sed -n 's/^error: No package owns \(.*\)$/\1/p'

Not sure what that’s on about - must have been a sudo cpan install from a while back.


Smooth update on my gnome desktop without issues!


can we now get the latest nvidia LTS driver? It already received a bugfix patch not long ago.
