Works fine for me, for quite some time.$ ls -l /var/cache/pacman/pkg

I found the culprit : it's the kernel 3.16.x !I downgraded linux 3.16.1-1 to 3.16-2 and the bug is still here,but if I downgrade linux 3.16.1-1 to linux 3.15.8-1 then the bug is gone :pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-3.15.8-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-headers-3.15.8-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/virtualbox-host-modules-4.3.14-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xzso there is
You are obviously using [kde-unstable], so I will move the post.Please paste a complete output of "pacman -Syu". The above paste says nothing.These kind of issues are usually fixed by doing a "sudo pacman -Syyu".
I've parsed the full huge log and found the following:debug: checking sha256sum for /var/cache/pacman/pkg/gdbm-1.10-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Those GPU errors are pretty low-level. You said you enabled i915 and intel_agp, did you regenerate your initramfs after? If not, run:sudo mkinitcpio -p linuxAnd if that doesn't work downgrade your kernel back to 3.14.6 which should still be in your cache unless you deleted it:sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-3.14.6-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xzIf that doesn't work then downgr
I think you need to reinstall your old version of glibc. For example:pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/glibc-2.16.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xzYou may need to force this install. I believe that should be safe. Do NOT on any account force the upgrade to the new version, though - only force the reinstall of the version you untarred.Rationale: you untarred glibc rather than installing it using pacman.
