Title: allservers question
Post by: glsmaxx on 09. March 2016, 22:16:51
If I type

<#pacman-mirrors -g> at the command line it  returns <bash: pacman-mirrors: command not found>  I understand the pacman-mirrors -g is for Arch and will not work in Manjaro. I am not 100% on that but have read it more than one place.  It says the mirrors have been refreshed when returned from using allsercers but I do not believe it as nothing changes in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist. 

IF I use reflector it will rank the ones I have uncommented.

The kicker is (I think..) that pacman-morrorlist may have used to be a depenency of reflector therefor throwing everything off.

I wish I wasn't so picky as to how I try and keep my system tweaked to the highest point of efficiency and optimized as best I can and then It wouldn't matter so much.It is not like I have anything close to slow mirrors but...Well some of you know what I mean.

Can anyone clarify my little muddled mind?

Thanks!

Try
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -ghttps://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Allservers.sh_Script (https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Allservers.sh_Script)

$ pacman -Qo `which pacman-mirrors`
/usr/bin/pacman-mirrors is owned by pacman-mirrorlist 20160301-1

therefore:

pacman -S pacman-mirrorlist

pacman-mirrorlist I have. I get command not found with it also.

I wanted to be able to use the allservers script like I used to but I can and guess I will use rank mirrors or reflector. Unless I am just really missing something here. That's a possibility also.

That screenshot appears to indicate you're running Arch. That's pretty poor form not to mention it (and your first post suggests you're running Manjaro, not Arch).

If you have pacman-mirrorlist installed in Manjaro, you have /usr/bin/pacman-mirrors. If you're getting "command not found" it suggests your PATH is set incorrectly.

If "which pacman-mirrors" returns nothing, try "locate pacman-mirrors". You didn't say whether you actually reinstalled pacman-mirrorlist, but I'll assume you did.

It is a Manjaro install. Not Arch. I use Archey3 instead of screenfetch.  That's all.

With a "Kernel Release" tag that reads 4.1.19-1-lts instead of 4.1.19-1-MANJARO?

Yes, you are correct. It IS Arch!

My apologies!

My mistake for sure!

I really didn't think I would get caught trying to slip the Arch Linux machine in here.

Guess the next time I spend a week trying to get over on you guys ()Who have never made an honest mistake) I will have to get up much earlier OR stay @ a Holiday Inn Express.

I wouldn't say that - it was still a case of working out why 'pacman-mirrors' wasn't there. The fact that it's because he's not running Manjaro is just the reason, nothing more than that.

It's also nice if Arch users say they're using Arch in the first place so we know there will be subtle differences. In this case I think it was an honest mistake (although how you don't know what OS you're running...  ::))

1. As an Archer, I thought it interesting that Arch wasn't mentioned 'til after the fact.
2. As one that follows the Arch Forums, I thought the accidental 'mirroring' effect was absolutely comical!*
3. The fact a solution was immediately posted was wonderful. :)

*To explain to the uninitiated, problem question posting in the Arch Forums is limited to Arch-only questions. All others are immediately binned and the poster educated. The response by Rob & Jonathon 'mirrored' the response of Arch Forum moderators who often find similar questions posed and a long thread generated--sometimes even by Manjaro users--and which elicit a very similar first response once it is discovered to be a non-Arch problem. The DIFFERENCE is, here in the Manjaro Forums, we don't care--we want to help fix the problem. (We are a kinder and gentler forum. Which is good. Especially for people like me.)  BUT it really helps talking apples/apples. ;)

EDIT: Oh my goodness. This was my one-thousand-oneth post in the Manjaro Forums. Good people. Good distro. Good discourse. :D
