Yep +Tracey Grimes​ and to be honest I prefer using Pacman or Yaourt to the update app anyway and with the Arch wiki and forums there is generally a guide or info on how to fix stuff if anything breaks

Hello considering buying a high end video card since mine overheats, but worried about Arch drivers. Considering this one. I still swap out ssd to run Windows 7 to work with Adobe Software Thats why I want a decent video card. Any suggestion?

+John Cortez That's bad. Downgrading isn't that funny. I'm using the open source drivers.

I'm having an issue with ccache population and usage. My ccache -s output :
cache directory                     /home/crackerteg/.ccache
primary config                      /home/crackerteg/.ccache/ccache.conf
secondary config      (readonly)    /etc/ccache.conf
cache hit (direct)                     0
cache hit (preprocessed)               0
cache miss                         34600
called for link                     1634
called for preprocessing              18
preprocessor error                  1670
unsupported source language         1380
no input file                        810
files in cache                      2805
cache size                         953.7 MB
max cache size                      50.0 GB

My .bashrc (minus several alias' I have):
export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk/tools
export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk/platform-tools
export PATH=${PATH}:~/.bin
export PATH="/usr/lib/ccache/bin/:$PATH"
export USE_CCACHE=1

I've tried a the current generic export USE_CCACHE=1 and even tried pointing it to exportUSE_CCACHE=/home/<profile name>/.ccache and no luck. ccache doesn't fill nor does it get used. I've cleared it and stats to see changes but always end up with what you see above even after several rom builds. Ideas?

Update: I nuked the .ccache folder and created a non hidden folder and redirected the export in my bashrc based off a recommendation from a teammate and all is well. No idea why that worked but now my ccache is playing nice.

just noticed something on my new install, couple of folders off root i have ownership of that i probably shouldnt /etc and /root

they are both set to me as owner and to the users group. that should not be that way i would think. should be root/root

why my keyboard stopped working in BBQ. I have installed it in Vmware Workstation 11 And i have another distro installed too such as Kali and back box but In those keyboard works fine. I dont know why it stopped working after sometime and when move my cursor to another windows or minimize and max vmware it again starts working. I think it is kernel header problem or something? I have installed header 3.14 ARC by pacman command. And this happens with mouse too. I have to click mouse more than a time to click something.. ? What should I do...? I don't wanna use virtual-box.? Any suggestions?

#Daniel almost every problem is solved except keyboard one. It looks like vmware keeps grabbing keys all the time. Like if I press a and after that if I press and spcl char that spcl char keeps printing...

Due to a bug on my local sourcetree, owner and group of /etc and /root directories might be wrong. Please check owner and group of /etc and /root directories. ls -la /. Should look like this: drwxr-xr-x 94 root root 4096 Feb 27 18:58 etc drwxr-x--- 13 root root 4096 Nov 27 16:35 root ...

Can't get this to install with efi, grub fails to install with a python error but it's using the right target. I booted in uefi mode and wiped my entire HD, but now I'm stuck. Anyone successfully do this?
