I had problems with ocaml yesterday. After the machine locked up during the
updates, I did a hard reset, and ran pacman -Su again. It continued
downloading ocaml, but when all the updates were downloaded, it failed to
install them, claiming that ocaml was corrupted. I removed the corrupted
ocaml as requested, and as I'm on dialup and didn't want to download 38MB of
ocaml again last night, I temporarily added an IgnorePkg line for it.
Ran pacman -Su again, and all the updates apart from ocaml, and also gnupg2,
which couldn't be found, were installed.
Today I went to install the ocaml update, having removed it from the IgnorePkg
line. It starts to download, but then throws an error as below.
error: error writing to file '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/ocaml....' :Bad address
Harddrive partition is redlining, and the partly downloaded ocaml file shows
as 2GB size.
Any ideas on a fix for this problem?
As an aside, pacman was updated, but not before the other updates, in case
that is what has caused the problem.
