> downgrader wine
Package 'wine' not available. Please check package name

Why? https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/w/wine/

davidsmit commented on 2016-04-17 07:37

Seems to miss the dependency for git:

==> Building and installing package
==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build downgrader.

After install of git, it makepkgs and installs.

Spilver commented on 2016-04-04 06:34

Hi folks. Please update, looks like all problems fixed

Hi
It is temporary problems with ARM datacenter. Also at this moment I prepare new package checking algorithm. Please update downgrader from AUR and you can temporary downgrade in auto mode, without -l option

No help. Crashes on gcc-multilib but not php or php-apache. Seems that downgrading two packages at once doesn't work.

Hi. I fix md5 check in PKGBUILD. I hope now all fine

pizzapill commented on 2015-10-14 09:12

Same issue as Lucius. This package is broken.

Lucius commented on 2015-09-11 11:47

I am a big fan of Arch Linux, learning a lot.
Usually I solve all my problembs with Dr. Google
But here I am stuck. Trying to install this paket i get

==> FEHLER: Integritäts-Prüfungen fehlen.
==> FEHLER:Makepkg konnte downgrader nicht erstellen.


I am aware that I can manually install the package with makepkg with the appropriate flag.
But I fear I can break the system if manually installing packages.
At the moment I try to install via yaourt.

do I need to add a packagekey ? I cant find any

anybody can help ? :)

anthraxx commented on 2015-09-01 15:54

please clean up this package repository, it should only contain the PKGBUILD related files and not the whole source-code of the project (*.c and *.h files)

backfist commented on 2015-05-28 10:35

This depends on sudo.

firekage commented on 2015-02-21 02:43

I tried to use it in comparision to downgrade package and downgrader does not work at all. Tried to put: downgrader -l nvidia and after that i saw error: "memory seg fault".

Spilver commented on 2015-02-03 20:50

All done

Alister.Hood commented on 2014-12-10 22:38

Please could this rename the source file to prevent problems for people using AUR helpers:

source=($pkgname-$pkgver::"http://www.igus.lv/downgrader/downgrader.tar.xz")

Please reinstall package 'libarchive'

Spilver commented on 2014-06-27 15:58

Hm..strange.. Is file /usr/include/archive.h exists?
No? - reinstall package 'libarchive'
Finaly all right ?

digifuzzy commented on 2014-06-27 15:29

Yea birthdays!

However, latest version gives the message:

Please update, it is fixed. But situation with glibc stays unclear. I disable temporary freeing memory, after execution complete.

It was problem with access to ARM. Now it is OK,
but please update - I make some modifications

Spilver commented on 2014-06-26 15:50

Please update. ARM is unavailable (I hope temporary), so I disable list function

What needed for fixing this bug? Thanks in advance for replying.

nonerd commented on 2014-05-17 06:01

Would be more useful when listing package dates and supporting a --date option.

Spilver commented on 2014-03-20 18:18

Thanks for report. Now fixed, please update

silverbucket commented on 2014-03-20 13:23

I would like to downgrade my kernel from 3.13 to 3.12, however when I run downgrader there doesn't seem to be that option:

$ sudo downgrader -l linux
Downgrade package: linux
Packages in ARM: 0
>> Please enter package number, [q] to quit


If I just try to downgrade it directly:

$ sudo downgrader linux
Downgrade package: linux
Installed version: 3.13.6-1
Downgrading from Cache, to version 3.13.5-1
loading packages...
warning: downgrading package linux (3.13.6-1 => 3.13.5-1)

Total Installed Size: 67.12 MiB
Net Upgrade Size: 0.00 MiB

... I want to go to 3.12, not 3.13.5

Any way to do this?

thefrip commented on 2014-01-20 16:21

The default config file downgrader.conf is not copied through the PKGBUILD (only by the make install which is not triggered). This should be added.

bernd_b commented on 2013-12-29 21:48

I didn't use sudo. Sorry if I was unclear about this. I ran downgrader as user root.

If I start it as normal user, this happens:

=============================
downgrader -l vlc
Downgrade package: vlc

...

1: vlc-2.1.2-1 [installed]

...

8: vlc-2.0.8.a-1 [will be installed by default]
>> Please enter package number, [q] to quit , [d] to install default package: 8
[sudo] password for bernd_b:
Sorry, user bernd_b is not allowed to execute '/usr/bin/pacman -U http://repo-arm-download.archlinuxcn.org/extra/os/x86_64/vlc-2.0.8.a-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' as root on amd64-archlinux
============================

So am I supposed to add /usr/bin/pacman to my /etc/sudoers config to use downgrader? I would have bet I did it once simply logged in as user root ...

Spilver commented on 2013-12-29 21:31

Please start downgrader without "sudo". And it will work like a sharm!
It will ask you a root password, when it will need them

bernd_b commented on 2013-12-29 11:58

No. It happens on different pc here in a terminal in X11 as well as in a virtual console - every time logged in as root.

Spilver commented on 2013-12-29 09:28

Hi. For me works ok.
Are you starting downgrader without "sudo" ?

bernd_b commented on 2013-12-28 22:47

Is this working for all but me?

=================
downgrader -l linux
Downgrade package: linux

Hi.
@jthurner: Changed.
@all:
A.R.M. is dead, at this moment work with ARM is incorrect.
In a few days/weeks I will implement new fork of ARM:
http://repo-arm.archlinuxcn.org/
after testing.

jthurner commented on 2013-08-13 22:20

Could you add something along the lines of "..your pacman.log has been backed up to /var/log/pacman.log.old" to the install script? I was a bit worried on "Now, for correct work I need to clear your pacman log file".

botika commented on 2013-07-18 15:16

Spilver commented on 2013-06-16 09:04

done, thanks!

Anonymous comment on 2013-06-16 08:16

Ok, you implemented it, but please don't do it that way! If you need root access with a package, don't use sudo in the package function, but use an install script. This is called by root at the install process. No sudo required.

Spilver commented on 2013-06-15 16:51

It is good idea. PKGBUILD updated

mar04 commented on 2013-06-15 16:40

Yes, now it works, but removing pacman.log is IMHO unacceptable. If you absolutely have to do this, then move it to pacman.log.old and display a warning.

Spilver commented on 2013-06-15 15:55

Please update. Now it works
On update installer will remove your pacman log file - it is needed,
because after pacman update to version 4.1.0-2 syntax of log file is
changed and can`t processing by downgrader.
Thanks for your help

Spilver commented on 2013-06-15 13:59

Dear Friends,
Please chek your e-mails with my questions.

Can you update it?

Alister.Hood commented on 2013-02-09 23:04

It would be good if this program had a versioned source package, to prevent problems like this:
