you might want to run "mkinitcpio -P" before rebooting!
after seeing this on the arch-general mailing list i read
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=183796 and had no further problems.
i'm getting an error when pacman tries to connect: "failed retrieving file 'heftig.db' from pkgbuild.com : Failed to connect to pkgbuild.com port 80: Network is unreachable."
i can still connect to the web interface and download the updated packages manually though. this happened earlier but then 'fixed' itself after a day or two. this time, it's been going on for ~ a week already.
am i the only one, or is heftig's repo having problems?
heftig's repo came up again, btw. still don't know if it's my network connction from the indian boondocks, or trouble with his repo. don't really care though, since there are other options.
watching when running a full KDE session doesn't heat up the system much. watching the same movie under awesome, CPU temp. soon creeps into 80 C, when i stop the process.
looks as if HW acceleration of the GPU (opensource radeon) wasn't utilized under awesome. i did start all the KDE processes that aren't automatically started outside a KDE session, and can't figure out what makes chromium behave different.
this does not happen when i use adobe flash, btw. any ideas?
chrome://gpu tells me that i have no hardware acceleration, neither for 3D CSS nor webGL. makes sense that that heats up the CPU, but KWIN seems to deal better with it. probably better choice of software rendering.
chrome://gpu also gives me a list of problems which i'll have to look into; probably related to using the opensource radeon driver. nothing really disturbing though, since i can watch those movies (that aren't really important to begin with) in flash, which works fine in awesome as well as KWIN.

otherwise the earth is an eco-system that's able to provide for it's inhabitants. take the factory out of farming, and the animals out of the food chain. eat the stuff that's growing near you, don't insist on ex- and importing it across half the world.
