If you see software failing with:
error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.68: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This means that the software (or a library) has not been rebuilt against newest icu (69).
As a temporary workaround you can install the old libs with:
The same applies for icu67.
Also open a bug or drop a message in the forum in this case..
The installation medium now provides a guided installer.
This addition to the default method of installation (based on the installation guide) is similar to the other methods.
If you use this installer, do not forget to mention it when asking for support and also to provide the archinstall log, when asked.
As linux-lts moved to the 5.10 version, all official kernels of Arch Linux now support zstd compressed
initramfs images, so mkinitcpio is switching to zstd compressed images by default with version 30,
which is currently on [testing].
If, for any reason, you are using a kernel version prior to 5.9, make sure to change mkinitcpio.conf
COMPRESSION to use one of the compressors supported, like gzip, otherwise you will not be able to
boot images generated by mkinitcpio.
glibc 2.33 introduced a CPU ISA level guessing at compile and runtime.
We are at the moment disabling this completely, as it fails in guessing
too high ISA levels and resulting in:
/usr/lib/libc.6: CPU ISA level is lower than required.
Also libseccomp support has been disabled for now, notably in
the OpenSSH sandbox (uses the rlimit one for now) and in
file/libmagic till the libcsecomp rules are adapted. The effects
* unable to login via SSH
* EBADSYS errors when executing file
