[Intervention potentially required] Python 3.10 and you

Thanks, I installed Garuda a few weeks ago on my laptop and I like it a lot.


Can you set your avatar?
Maybe I can then remember you :slight_smile: , or you are the virus? :smiley:


System borked after garuda-update. Can only access tty via ctrl alt f2 after reboot. Attempted to - Syu Optimus-manager. Get an error "failed to synchronize all databases (unable to lock database)

and search in forum about "black screen"


Just a heads up if you use third-party repo in kodi 19 you will most likely have to rebuild the extension. Most of the ones I used are build with a older version of python and @TNE post a tool that I will help your process.

If you're on a laptop with Optimus-manager you'll want to reinstall with Pacman -Syyu. If you reboot before hand you'll get the black screen and have to manually connect to wifi (damn near impossible) or use ether net cable (what I ended up doing).


Just a heads up, third party sketchy Kodi extensions is one of the most likely attack vectors for infecting a Linux machine with malware.


What virus?

Let me whoogle that for you :smiley:


ohh, :duck: :duck: :walking_man:


You got that one!

hey, i reinstalled aur packages (with yay) and after built myself from git but Gkraken and other still don't work, what to do?

If you have reinstalled or used 'garuda-update' in terminal, and it still doesn't work, then you have to track down the maintainers of the package, usually a git page, and open an issue with them. Site the python 3.10 links, etc. and your output from terminal running the app or any info you can give them....then wait. :upside_down_face:


welp, someone else already posted it... the dev is already working on it


When I try and run garuda-update or update it just says error: target not found: garuda-update anyone know why?

pacman -Qi garuda-update

If empty than

sudo pacman -Syu garuda-update

Thank you for the help! Somehow chaotic aur disappeared when I readded it everything seemed to work.

I ran pacman -Syu and garuda-update. However mpv aborts with the following error:

mpv: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.9.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

My mpv is provided by the package "mpv-full", version 0.34.0-1

Am I missing a step?

The error occurs, when mpv is run after updates are finished. Not during the update process.

I fixed this by downloading the latest python39 package and telling pacman to install it: sudo pacman -U python-3.9.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
The 3.10 version is used by default, but some applications (az, for instance) still require 3.9 dependencies, which will now be present.

Aaaaaaah don't do this! Every other package will behave this way then. Seems like we didn't catch mpv-full while rebuilding :eyes: (or is this a compatibility package?)


I don't know where to find the info of it being an compatibility package. Here is the information pacman provides:
