[Intervention potentially required] Python 3.10 and you

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:

Yup, this needs a rebuild. I was actually on it right now, it does seem like a source can't be downloaded due to the server which its downloading from being offline (https://waf.io). It will automatically be built once its working again though, so it should show up once the people fixed their website :slight_smile:


As @guybrush pointed out, az is also affected.
I'm not familiar with this binary, but it seems to be provided by the package "azure-cli".

Maybe pactree -rus python helps in finding affected packages.

Is Whoogle still affected by this? I've added the below if it helps. I have already posted on their github and AUR pages.

Never mind just got your reply on github.


For those that don't want to wait for the Whoogle fix use the whoogle-git version in the Chaotic-AUR. It builds without any issues. You will need to restart the Whoogleservice once built.
