pacman segmentation fault


Greetings, I've read a lot of things about this segfault, but none of them seems to help my case. I tried to update everything, but I get this circle of hell(i'm ignoring glibc,curl because they give another error):

# REPOSITORIES
#   - can be defined here or included from another file
#   - pacman will search repositories in the order defined here
#   - local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files
#   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages

#   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture

#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
# uncommented to enable the repo.

# The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the

# after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

From here on if I try to run anything via pacman I get this:

  if you're sure a package manager is not already
  running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
This is where i remove the db.lck and the things start over again. I will appreciate any help, thank you in advance!

P.S.
If I try update glibc, as I have not done it this year:
Code:
[root@tinchev ~]# pacman -U http://pkgbuild.com/~allan/glibc-2.16.0-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz
error: failed to init transaction (unable to lock database)

Perhaps there are a lot of file conflicts. You probably shouldn't be ignoring glibc and curl (those are very very important!). Are you facing the glibc update hell? There was a note on the main page about that not too long ago... Here.

Hello Alex,
yes I tried that out, the same error popped out, so I tried to update everything via pacman -Syu --ignore glibc,curl (as they say in the link you gave me) and the errors are as I posted above. Any other thoughts?

Does the dir /var/lib/pacman even exist?

Perhaps you should try ^^^this^^^.

The dir /var/lib/pacman/sync/ exists, however the file is called extra.db, not extra.db.sig. When I remove the db.lck all starts over again segfault, debug, removing db.lck.
