So due to yet another **** up by the now pretty ****ing useless arch linux team, we're left with a broken GCC 4.8 package, they refuse to add in the patch on GCC's site or revert back to GCC 4.7, it's boost-libs and systemd all over again.

So, I'm trying to compile GCC 4.7.2 using the old make scripts, a simple task you'd think? WRONG.

I don't even know what the arch team have done but I've had to resort to using a patch a user made on the forums, farmpolice.com/content/files/texinfo_archlinux.patch, and had to remove all traces of ada from the PKGBUILD because I just get countless errors when it's trying to link (Not that I care about ada, never used it and never planning to use it).

So, during compilation I've been greeted with so many errors I can't list them all, the current one is;

ibtool: link: (cd ".libs" && rm -f "libgfortran.so.3" && ln -s "libgfortran.so.3.0.0" "libgfortran.so.3")

libtool: link: (cd ".libs" && rm -f "libgfortran.so" && ln -s "libgfortran.so.3.0.0" "libgfortran.so")

Now, if I try make again I get a completely different error related to libgo, I found http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2012-12/msg01378.html and added the fixes, now I get;

Scratch the whole thing, found GCC 4.7 on the arch rollback thing and now everything compiles fine again.

Well done arch team, might as well quit now before you mess something else up.

I'm not sure what's goin on with arch to be honest. It was crappy for a bit, then they made it quite stable, and seems like it's gone down hill again. Did a fresh install yesterday, now I can't get cinnamon to load via startx. X just shuts down (no errors or anything). However if I load stock X desktop I can then run cinnamon via xterm and it will load up.

Currently doing another re-install to see if the issue persists.

Considered it. Does cinnamon run on it? I prefer standard style desktops (Task bar at bottom w/ start button and notification area).

Installed it in Virtual Box. Install went okay, took me a bit to realize that it doesn't generate the .xinitrc file so I couldn't figure out why it kept booting gnome-shell. Got that all fixed. Found that it doesn't have cinnamon 1.8 available just 1.6 which means the new nemo isn't available either. Using the minty theme seems to freeze cinnamon.

Also I cannot figure out how to enable dark themes for all apps. I can do it via gnome-tweak-tool in Arch but no option in debian.

Well.. unless you did something to prevent it, you should have gnome 3.8 libs and files and cinnamon wont run with them. Thats why Cinnarch distro was discontinued and the creator made a gnome 3 distro instead. I really liked Cinnarch :(

You're not the only one. I can't get fecking audio CDs to mount in any distro I try! Linux has really been testing my patience lately...

hmmm i dont know how cinnamon is with fedora, suse or gentoo, but you might want to take a look.. if you are going to stick with debian, in order to get a more updated cinnamon, you may need to change to a ubuntu based distro unfortunatelly

Works fine for me Latest Arch, With Latest Cinnamon (1.8). I have some issues with the background being black. But other than that it is working fine.

That's very odd.. I bet you have the older gnome files or I must be very wrong.. On Cinarch cinnamon broke after a simple update - official repos (was kind of functional, but somewhat destroyed).

Use MATE instead of cinnamon anyway.

Its because the recent cinnamon 1.8 update fixed most of the gnome 3.8 problems.

Got Debian Wheezy all setup in Virtual Box. Got it looking like my standard Arch installs, took a bit more searching and such to get everything than with Arch. With Arch I can usually have everything installed in ~20 mins with a combination of Pacman and Yaourt. However just finding the packages for things like skype, mono, and sdl took time in themselves.

Overall, no crashes and blow ups so that's good.

Ubuntu uses ancient packages.

Glad you're happy, Firey! :D

And, Xilo, you are dead wrong. The latest (13.04) version has a totally new face to it. Care to back up your opinion?

well.. it does uses older packages.. not that old, but still... i'm guilty atm because im using elementary os (yeah, ubuntu 12.04 based) but I really loved the work they did there with the interface and everything else.. it just works and the crashes now are minimal

Audio cds wouldn't show up, but data cds would. I spent about 3 days now getting this to work, but hey it works.
