LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/test/usr/lib gdb –args /test/bin/bash results in:

Program terminated with signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
#0  0xb7619991 in strcmp () from /test/usr/lib/
(gdb) bt
#0  0xb7619991 in strcmp () from /test/usr/lib/
#1  0xb75bd41f in setlocale () from /test/usr/lib/
#2  0x0076b7f2 in ?? ()
#3  0x0053acf6 in ?? ()
#4  0xb75b3a31 in __libc_start_main () from /test/usr/lib/
#5  0x0053e561 in ?? ()

So, getting the exact failing opcode is hard.

2.28-5.0 was ok,
2.28-5.2 is not.

So it’s something we changed or something changed on one of the i486 build slaves.

Happens only on the AMD-K6, all other machines with CPUs with limited special instruction
sets (Pentium-S, AMD Geode) are working fine.

FS#37: ISO 2018.05.01 is not bootable with qemu or Virtualbox Andreas Baumann Thu, 10 May 2018 08:03:17 +0000 I tried the i686 image. Booting leads to kernel panic.
Adding an explicit init=/lib/systemd/systemd parameter also panics.

qemu-system-i386 -cdrom archlinux-2018.05.01-i686.iso

It also panics in Virtualbox.

The same ISO works with libvirtd though.

Running libreoffice produces the following error message:

FS#49: ffmpeg update failures in release and testing Levi Mon, 20 Aug 2018 15:44:59 +0000 When I have done a pacman -Syu recently, it offers to update libx264 with x264:

:: Replace libx264 with testing/x264? [Y/n] 
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing libx264 breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg

As can be seen there, it fails because a dependency is not met.

This is reportedly also a problem on the release branches.

Using pacman’s query functionality I can see that x264 claims to provide rather than 152-32 i.e. x264 is too new for the current version of ffmpeg.

I consider this a high priority defect because ffmpeg is used by rather a lot of a/v playback and transcoding software.

Steps to reproduce

$ pacman -Syu

Press n and enter when it offers to upgrade libx264. Ensure you’re not using multiple -ys on your pacman invocation.

Suggested fix

Provide an updated ffmpeg.

FS#55: protobuf 3.6.0 needs pushing from testing to stable Levi Sun, 28 Oct 2018 17:30:25 +0000 As per

Python-protobuf 3.6.0 has already been pushed to extra for a long time now, but protobuf is still at version 3.5.2. As far as I’m aware, the set in testing all works.

For completeness, puthon2-protobuf 3.6.0 probably needs to be migrated to stable extra as well.

FS#48: Testing repo missing a new version of python-six Levi Sun, 19 Aug 2018 19:38:54 +0000 I’ve become aware that python-six doesn’t identify that it depends specifically on python3.6 (it claims in the text that it’s for python 3 as well as python 2, which I don’t believe can be true; it only puts python files in /usr/lib/python3.6).

It has however allowed python 3.7 into the testing repo while no new version of python-six is available, and this version of python3 can no longer find a version of six when you import it.

As far as I know this is not an issue for anyone strictly on the release repos yet, and still won’t be an issue for anyone not using python-six either directly or indirectly.

Steps to reproduce

(upgrade at least python from the testing repos)
# python
# import six
> ...
> ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘six’

Steps to fix

A new version of python-six that supplies its files to python3.7/site-packages should be built and uploaded to the testing repos, and it should probably identify its dependent versions better.

I note arch64 has a newer python-six that supplies its libs to python3.7 just fine, although it also doesn’t identify its versions to my liking.
