[ SOLVED ] Error 127 cower Arch linux

If you are getting this error:

make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [cower.o] Error 127
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Its because you need the "cc" compiler.

If using Arch Linux just type

$ sudo pacman -S base-devel

Now keep on with what you were doing.

[ SOLVED ] cannot find strip library required for object file stripping in arch linux

Are you getting this error while using the command makepkg in ArchLinux.

"==> ERROR: Cannot find the strip binary required for object file stripping."

It is easy to fix, just install the "binutils" package.

Go to your terminal and type

$ sudo pacman -S binutils

or if you are root just

# pacman -S binutils

If you then hit the error message

"make: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

It's because you don't have the the program make, also it needs the gc compiler, guile, and probably libatomic_ops

Install them just by tiping

$ sudo pacman -S make

Then make will pull its dependencies and install the rest of the packages needed.

Now, go back to your first command you typed "makepkg" and makepkg will find the strip binary for the creation of the package.

[SOLUCIONADO] llamada a execv fallida

Hoy luego de hacer una actualizacion de mi sistema arch linux encontre que cada vez que instalaba un paquete a traves de pacman me aparecia el siguiente error.

:: Ejecutando los «hooks» de posinstalación...
(1/2) Updating icon theme caches...
llamada a execv fallida (Permiso denegado)
error: la orden no se ejecutó correctamente
(2/2) Updating the desktop file MIME type cache...

Luego de buscar un poco en encontre que el error consistia en la falta de permisos de ejecucion de un script llamado gtk-update-icon-cache


The script that gtk-update-icon-cache calls through pacman has not the executable flag.

El script que gtk-update-icon-cache llama a traves de pacman no tiene permisos para ser ejecutado

$ ls -al /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 195 abr 27 17:04 /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache


Solo hay que cambiar el script para que sea ejecutable

$ sudo chmod +x /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache

$ ls -al /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 195 abr 27 09:06 /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache

Luego tenemos que reinstalar gtk3 de la siguiente manera.

$ sudo pacman -S gtk3

Please share this workaround or g+ as we can help as many arch linux users as possible.

Por favor comparte esta guia para que mucha mas gente que use Arch Linux pueda verse favorecida.

[ SOLVED ] call to execv failed

Today after I did a system upgrade  of my arch linux box I found that every time I installed any package using pacman I encountered this error message.

:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/2) Updating icon theme caches...
call to execv failed (Permission denied)
error: command failed to execute correctly
(2/2) Updating the desktop file MIME type cache...

After looking around for a solution I found that the case was a lack of execution permissions in a file called gtk-update-icon-cache.


The script that gtk-update-icon-cache calls through pacman has not the executable flag.

$ ls -al /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 195 abr 27 17:04 /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache


Just change it to be executable

$ sudo chmod +x /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache

$ ls -al /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 195 abr 27 09:06 /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/gtk-update-icon-cache

And you have to reinstall gtk3 to make it work back again.

$ sudo pacman -S gtk3

[ S O L V E D ] Black Screen GTX 750 ti Games freezes all the time.

I bought a GTX 750 ti video card last year for gamming. It worked well for a while. But suddenly my games were crashing all the time at random.

The famous BSOD (Black screen of death) appeared at the best moments in my games, sometimes the sound was also looping and others the system was responding but the screen was dead.

I tried changing the PSU (Power supply unit) and also tried with different video cards but all seemed to work well, so the issue must be my GTX 750 ti video card.

I have 2 Windows installations. One is Windows 7 x64 and the other is Windows 8.1 x64. In both cases with the same games installed the card crashed. That's how I knew it was a hardware/driver related issue.

After cheking the video card specifications I realized the GPU core was intended to be run between 1020 MHz and 1085 MHz.

So I installed a program called MSI AfterBurner for underclocking the video card.

I installed this program and set the GPU speed and Memory speed toggled on for displaying when playing a game.

As I started a game I realized the GPU was running at 1333 MHz causing the video card to crash after a while, could be seconds or minutes.

After underclocking the GPU and Memory speeds, all went back to be stable again.

Here is the step by step process.

  1. Download MSI AfterBurner from here
  2. Install it.
  3. Run it.
  4. If you want to have the GPU core speed and Memory speed displayed when playing your game go to preferences and enable them (in AfterBurner under the Monitoring tab).

Wrong GPU Configuration

bad specs gpu

wrong gpu overclock

Good GPU Configuration

good specs
Power to 80%.
Core Clock -250.
Memory Clock -250.
Press the apply button after making the changes.

nice underclock stable

I assume that one of the nVidia drivers after been updated changed the core default speed causing the video card to be overclocked as a default.


Please share with others or g+ the post.
