FS#121 - Multiple packages need rebuild after libicu upgrade

Over in  FS#119 , @abaumann mentioned that the libicu upgrade from 67 to 68 was part of what broke gdb. I missed the libicu upgrade when looking at gdb, but now that that one is resolved, I noticed a number of other packages that still link against the old and now nonexistant /usr/lib/libicu*.so.67 files. On my particular system, the following packages are installed, link to icu 67, and need rebuilt as well:

* harfbuzz-icu (2.7.0-1.0)
* mongo-c-driver (1.17.3-1.0)
* postfix (3.5.6-2.0)
* postgresql (12.4-1.0)
* postgresql-old-upgrade (12.5-1.0)
* samba (4.12.3-1.2)
* smbclient (4.12.3-1.2)
* syslog-ng (3.28.1-3.0)
* texlive-bin (2020.54586-4.0)
* xfsprogs (5.8.0-1.0)

… but I’m sure you have a way of determining all the affected packages?

As a workaround, in case others have the same problem, I manually extracted the old versioned .so files from the previous package to get things working again:

tar -C / -xf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/icu-67.1-1.0-i686.pkg.tar.zst –wildcards ‘usr/lib/lib*.so.*’ ```

- I’ll just have to remember to clean them up again later.

(I wasn't quite sure if you'd prefer a new issue or the gdb one reopened, but since gdb actually got fixed, I opted for a new one).

That's fine. I prefer news bugs being opened.. :-)

Andreas Baumann commented on 10.01.2021 13:05

I retriggered rebuilds. I also need my NAS back with Samba.. :-)

Andreas Baumann commented on 10.01.2021 13:38

Rebuilding samba fails in a Python issue:

ERROR: Use of system library ldb depends on missing system library/libraries ['pyldb-util.cpython-39-i386-linux-gnu']

apparently still not all Python modules made it from 3.8 to 3.9

Andreas Baumann commented on 10.01.2021 13:43

rebuilding samba requires updated ldb, which in turn requires tdb, talloc..
talloc has some source checksuming and pgp key issues..

This is giving me horrible flashbacks of "emerge world" from my Gentoo days! ;-)

Andreas Baumann commented on 10.01.2021 19:51

The better workaround (as mentioned in the forums) is to temporarily install the icu67

Andreas Baumann commented on 11.01.2021 13:14

Samba, smbclient and postfix are in stable. postfix in 486 not as it depends on
mariadb-libs SIMD-stuff. i686 and pentium4 are fine for postfix.

Andreas Baumann commented on 11.01.2021 14:51

xfsprogs and syslog-ng are also in stable.

Andreas Baumann commented on 13.01.2021 19:10


I pushed facter and it's libraries leatherman (due to a boost conflict),
libwhereami, cpp-hocon and yaml-cpp to stable

I seem not to be able to answer on the mailing list (nor receive mails, as a matter of fact). :-(

Andreas Baumann commented on 18.01.2021 10:08

Re-registration to the mailing list helped.. :-)
