The rather long outage (2018-08-27 through 2018-09-18; 22 days) of the
proton.parabola.nu server has been resolved, with all services being
winston.parabola.nu. Please notify us if you encounter
any lingering issues.
We'd like to specifically thank Jonathan "n1md4" Gower for graciously hosting
us at Positive Internet all these years--since before most of us were even
Parabola users, let alone contributors.
However, that sponsorship has come to an end. We are alright for now; the
server that 1984 Hosting is sponsoring us with is capable of covering our
immediate needs. We are looking for a replacement server and are favoring a
proprietor that is a "friend of freedom," if anyone in the community has a
Due to a known bug in upstream Linux 4.18, users with older multi-core x86 CPUs (Core 2 Duo and earlier?) may not correctly boot up with
linux-libre 4.18 when using the default clocksource.
If you are affected, and the CPU is new enough to support HPET, you may work around this by adding
clocksource=hpet to the kernel command line. GRUB users can accomplish this by inserting
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT+=" clocksource=hpet" in to
/etc/default/grub and re-running
If your CPU is too old to support HPET, you may work around this by using the

unar package has been dropped in favor of Arch's
unarchiver. This was discussed in the mailing list some months ago.
If you are using
unar, just install
unarchiver. You'll be asked if you want to replace it, just accept and continue as any normal package installation.
The new versions of
systemd-resolvconf may not be installed together. Users who have both
systemd-resolvconf installed will need to manually switch to from
openresolv before upgrading.
If you get an error
:: unable to satisfy dependency 'resolvconf' required by netctl
pacman -S openresolv
prior to upgrading.
The libutf8proc package prior to version 2.1.1-3 had an incorrect soname link. This has been fixed in 2.1.1-3, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error
libutf8proc: /usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2 exists in filesystem
when updating, use
pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2
to perform the upgrade.
