@manuel said in Pamac 6.2.3 broken:
Pamac is made by Manjaro devs.
Manjaro users did not see this pamac problem, because Manjaro devs apparently held back this broken update. Were they just lazy, or did they know about the problem, is unknown to me.
The reason for the problem was incompatibility with the new Vala compiler release.
But there is a lesson to learn here. I know it is practically impossible to test every package from upstream, but since pamac is a heavily used and important tool for many Antergos users, maybe that particular package deserves some extra testing before letting it out to repos? This surely is not the only time pamac has caused trouble.
And we do not abandon the ship because a small issue. It’s an important component but it’s not an unusable system.
I see some people saying ‘off to Manjaro, bye bye’ for this. Why? Distro hop is what I see. Two weeks on Manjaro, a problem appears and they jump to Ubuntu. Next to Fedora. Well, not Fedora ok, but openSUSE. Then two weeks later, Mint.
I have Antergos since 14th December 2017. I’m on Linux since that day and before I did install everything I got my hands on.
We know the risk of some fresh cutting edge bits. Arch is my choice. Antergos my flavor.
I’m sending a message to Antergos to change “Antergos for everyone” to “Antergos for the solid”.
Well, after this mental diarrhea of love for Antergos, I really think this was a really small issue. I’ve made way worst errors that broke my system. Broke!
Love pamac. Love pacman. Love UrbanTerror.
