OpenSSL 3.0.7 is now the current version of OpenSSL. If you experience problems like:
binary: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
binary: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
you can temporarily install `openssl-1.1` to fix the issue like so:
This is especially the case for everything coming
from third party repos or the AUR.
If you see this message after upgrading and booting:
Assertion 'close_nointr(fd) != -EBADF' failed at src/basic/fd-util.c:76, function safe_close(). Aborting.
Just boot into single user mode and comment out the following sections in `/etc/pam,.d/system-login`:
#-session optional pam_systemd.so
and in /etc/pam.d/system-auth:
#-auth [success=2 default=ignore] pam_systemd_home.so
#-account [success=1 default=ignore] pam_systemd_home.so
#-password [success=1 default=ignore] pam_systemd_home.so
#-session optional pam_systemd_home.so
Python 2 went end of life January 2020. Since then we have been actively cutting down the number of projects depending on
python2 in our repositories, and we have finally been able to drop it from our distribution. If you still have
python2 installed on your system consider removing it and any python2 package.
If you still require the python2 package you can keep it around, but please be aware that there will be no security updates. If you need a patched package please consult the AUR, or use an unofficial user repository.
As part of dropping Python 2 which is EOL, we have migrated our mailing lists from mailman2 to mailman3.
Rewriting of the "From" header and subject (to prepend the list name) have been disabled to keep the DKIM signature intact. This means "reply to mailing list" must be used when replying to the list and you may need to update your filters and rules matching the "From" header.
All existing subscriptions are migrated and you do not need to re-subscribe. For managing your subscriptions a new mailman3 account must be registered.
