I think it's fixed. Sorry!

Ah crap, I do less testing on the bash-completion since I'm a zsh user. Let me see if I can figure it out...

I'm getting this with the newest version:

-bash: /etc/bash_completion.d/downgrade: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `;;'
-bash: /etc/bash_completion.d/downgrade: line 5: ` COMPREPLY=($(compgen -W "$(pacman -Qqs "^$cur")")) ;;'

Dropped v5 -- greatly simplified and thus changed usage. See man downgrade for details.

I'd love to give downgrade some sort of --provider option or maybe just use an ARM_SOURCE environment variable, but the alternate sources would have to offer the same interface as the current source.

Do you know what kind of interface/API iprimus is offering?

I'm not sure how easy it would be to adapt the program for (and not sure it has a built-in search function), but seems to have a good selection of old packages, which a lot of the newer ARM clones are still lacking.

Issue : downgrade does not work when multiple dirs is used in CacheDir in pacman.conf. Also reported on github.

P67 (and everyone),

My understanding is the old ARM site went dark unexpectedly and no one has been able to get access to the older packages that were there. I would assume the new site will only ever have packages as old as when it was started (which is recent).

If you're really stuck, you might be able to checkout old revisions of the git PKGBUILDs to build/install what you need (and its deps ofcourse).

Good luck.

brisbin33: Is the new A.R.M also going to contain the old packages the old A.R.M. had in it? I feel a need to go back to a 3.6 kernel to test some things out.. But the A.R.M does not contain them.

scorici, well thanks to phoenixlzx we have a new A.R.M. site and downgrade's already been updated to access it for non-local packages.

Hope it works for you.
