Default Broken Dependency - Speakup

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: RIPEMD160

Hey, when I did a 'pacman -Syu' this evening, it tried to upgrade
speakup from Community but failed because it was expecting a later
version of kernel26. Is the newer kernel on its way?

Yes. If not, it's a bug.

This happens when (1) the packager has yet to update that specific
package (in this case kernel26) or (2) the mirror has only sync'd part
of the repo (in this case speakup but not kernel26).

Well, then I wonder if there is something wrong with the easynews
mirror? Doing a 'pacman -Si kernel26' yields 2.6.31.6-1 as its version
and this is now 4:20 AM Mount time. I usually have good luck with
this mirror. Wonder if I need to change mirrors or something.

I changed mirrors and that seemed to have done the trick. Well, umm,
not really. What I mean is two kernel26.32 packages got updated but now
my machine is completely dead in the water! I guess I'm gonna have to
boot with the live CD when I get home and start downgrading some
packages <sigh>. This is the first time I've upgraded kernel packages
and have my machine fall completely over! no boot! I'm at work now so
can't deal further with this until I get home tonight but...

Hi,

Did you pacman -Syu, or did you just update the kernel when you
updated after you changed the mirror? Also, you can expect problems
with the 26.32 series, as it has just been introduced. However, in all
the time I have been using Arch, I have never had my machine break
massivly from a kernel update.

Thanks,
Laurie

P.S. Don't top post, it can make things hard to read.

Yes I did. I recalled 4 packages being specified for update. I forget
their exact names now but two of them were kernel26-32 related. They
each had an additional qualifier like driver, module, etc. Sorry, I'm
not at that computer right now and it can't boot yet anyway <sigh>.
