Testing Repositories

The testing repositories are online and first tests have been done. Please help us testing these repositories and post bugs, so we can merge this testing repos as soon as possible with the stable repositories. Please be aware that this could break your system.

 

Steps to enable testing repositories:

sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf

Before updating you should be sure that you have included manjaro-system in the SyncFirst Variable in /etc/pacman.conf! This is very important!

SyncFirst   = manjaro-system pacman

Now append to all repository names “-testing”
Sample x86_64 manjaro pacman.conf file:

#
# /etc/pacman.conf
#
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#
# GENERAL OPTIONS
#
[options]
# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
#CacheDir    = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir      = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
HoldPkg     = pacman glibc manjaro-system
# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst   = manjaro-system pacman
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
Architecture = auto

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
#IgnorePkg   =
#IgnoreGroup =

#NoUpgrade   =
#NoExtract   =

# Misc options
#UseSyslog
#UseDelta
#TotalDownload
CheckSpace
#VerbosePkgLists

# By default, pacman accepts packages signed by keys that its local keyring
# trusts (see pacman-key and its man page), as well as unsigned packages.
#SigLevel = Optional TrustedOnly

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local
# keyring can then be populated with the keys of all official packages
# Manjaro Linux supports with `pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro`.

#
# REPOSITORIES
#   - can be defined here or included from another file
#   - pacman will search repositories in the order defined here
#   - local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files
#   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages
#     have identical names, regardless of version number
#   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture
#
# Repository entries are of the format:
#       [repo-name]
#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
# uncommented to enable the repo.

# If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
# enable the multilib repositories as required here.

[basis-multilib-testing]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[multilib-testing]
SigLevel = PackageRequired

# An example of a custom package repository.  See the pacman manpage for
# tips on creating your own repositories.
#[custom]
#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

Then run:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S manjaro-system
sudo pacman -Su

Happy testing!
