Bug seens to be related to


There is generall mess on cairo related files for different architectures (pentium4, i486, i686) - some packages for one architecture are outdated, while for other archictectures are up to date, for instance:

  • python-cairo i486/extra : 1.21.0-1.0
  • python-cairo i686/extra : 1.23.0-3.0
  • python-cairo pentium4/extra : 1.23.0-3.0

This is pentium4 related problem. Firefox crashes on startup with following messages:

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 814
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child

Temporary solution is to change in /etc/pacman/conf


, delete firefox for pentium4 from pacman cache and reinstall firefox

330PackagesBug ReportVery LowLow[gcompris-qt] no game iconsUnconfirmed
Task Description

gcompris-qt 3.0-1.0 is missing a dependency on llvm14 (or maybe it needs a rebuild for llvm) and thus it doesn’t show any game in the menu.

335PackagesBug ReportVery LowMediumpython-setuptools-scm 7.1.0-4.1 missing dependencyUnconfirmed
Task Description

python-setuptools-scm 7.1.0-4.1 as found in the repo is missing the dependencies python-packaging and python-setuptools, which breaks the build of many other packages.

336PackagesBug ReportVery LowLow[pyqt-builder]: needs rebuildUnconfirmed
Task Description

just wanted to get this one on the board - i am unable to build ‘python-pyqt5’ which many other packages depend on, such as ‘qutebrowser’

the current ‘python-pyqt5’ PKGBUILD, which builds fine for x86_64 and arm, has unspecified dependencies in the i686 repos - not sure why that is

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘jaraco.functools’
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘jaraco.context’

that is easily fixed by requiring them explicitly:
> makedepends_i686=(’python-jaraco.context’ ‘python-jaraco.functools’)

however, after that, it gives a more fatal error:

sip-build: Unable to import ‘project.py’: No module named ‘pyqtbuild’

that module is in the ‘pyqt-builder’ package, i beleive - ‘pyqt-builder’ is installed as a build dependency; but it was built for python 3.9 - so probably that is why the build could not find the module

Task Description

The package needs to be recompiled for re2 v10 and several required dependencies were not installed, such as icu69 (?) and more.

341PackagesBug ReportVery LowCriticalpython3 is version 11, but all packages install only 3....Unconfirmed
Task Description

From a fresh install just now:

The /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages folder is full of dozens of files, but there is little in the 3.11 folder. Some examples: gajim yt-dlp zippy samba.

This seems to affect most new packages that I install, so it is by no means limited to just the examples.

Task Description

Package ‘screen 4.9.1-1.0’ is missing dependency libutempter. I assume this is because libutempter used to be a dependency of util-linux which is part of base, so was assumed to be installed.

With the regular Arch Linux distro libutempter is still a dependency of util-linux.
