can you drop to a shell? if so, get some internet connection and
retrieve the old packages from http://arm.konnichi.com/2012/01/26/

you'll find the kde packages in extra.
you can just install them with a bit bash-hacking (awk, sed, wget, etc).
if you want hints, just ask.

erm, small advice: there is strong bottom post policy on this list. dont
make a discussion of ist, happend often enough… just wanted to have said.

your prob:
how about just removing kde, so you get space for repairing it? maybe a
# pacman -Scc
gets you some more free space (emptiing the packege cache)

Hi,

I hit the same problem while updating through KDE RC.

I've filled a wish in KDE bug tracker
(https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=290778) to alert the user on start
if /, /tmp or /home is full as it affects KDE applications way out of
proportions as compared to GTK+ applications for example.

I'll try to work on something if I find the time to do so...

Tim

For the future you should make backups using tar, when booted to another
Linux. Don't sync the backups, always make complete new ones and keep
them for a while, so you are able to go back to different versions, just
in case you shouldn't notice serious bugs directly after making changes.

I'm doing it by a "dirty" script, regarding to globbing it at least
isn't wise to use the asterisk.

#!/bin/sh
# sh ./bak_arch

BACKUP_NAME_ADD="2012-Jan-snap-16.bak"

clear
echo "We are going to backup Arch Linux"
echo "Ensure that /media/archlinux and /media/data2 are mounted."
echo "Press enter to continue."
read any_pushed_key

cd /media/archlinux
clear
echo "Arch Linux backup starting now."
tar czf /media/data2/archlinux/archlinux_$BACKUP_NAME_ADD.tar.gz *

clear
cd /media/data2/archlinux
ls archlinux_*.tar.gz -hAl

exit 0

you could install (if necessary) and use parted from a console to do the
resizing.
