    xx Bluestar Repository Update - 08/08/2014
    August 08, 2014, 01:12:33 PM by admin
    The following packages are now available from the bluestar repository:

    update: dkusage-0.3.3-1

    new: gimp-plugin-resynthesizer-git-2.0-1
    new: paccache-0.1.6-1

    The dkusage update is a minor one. Added calls to close/delete the inode db when -h option is used; removed unneeded constant.

    The paccache command is incredibly useful for cleaning up your pacman cache (/var/cache/pacman/pkg). For example:

    Code: [Select]
    paccache -r
    leaves the 3 latest copies of any/all package files and removes the rest. There are options to tune how many copies you want to keep, whether or not you want to tie deletion to architecture or installation status, etc. Very useful. Use the --help option to get a full syntax listing.

    xx USB Issues After Linux-3.15.5 Upgrade
    July 28, 2014, 03:55:45 PM by admin
    If you're suddenly experiencing issues with your USB after upgrading/installing to linux-3.15.5, I added a post to the Information forum which should provide some helpful information, and a link to a useful thread for those who have been experiencing issues since the arrival of linux-3.15.1.

    [Edit: linux-3.15.7 appears to fix the bizarre usb issues.]
