I've had Archlinux "Don't Panic" installed for a while. I installed it because
someone on another list was having problems with their hda intel soundcard,
and I wanted to see what was required to upgrade the Alsa driver on
Archlinux. It seems to be a nice stable distro, pacman, which I havn't used
before, installs the downloaded packages very quickly. Downloading them, as
always takes a while, as I'm on dialup.
Anyway. The problem since the latest updates. Qjackctl was working ok, but
since updates I did last night, it now fails to start.
See below for the updated packages.
[root@myhost djmons]# pacman -Su

After these updates Qjackctl would not start from the KDE desktop launcher,
and see below for output when trying to start it on the CLI.
[djmons@myhost ~]$ qjackctl
qjackctl: error while loading shared libraries: libaudio.so.2: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
It's true that there's no such library as libaudio.so.2, at least I can't find
I have run pacman -Sy, and -Su this evening, and no further updates are
available. Should I just wait a bit, and see if this problem is resolved, or
post a bug report? Personally I don't see it as a bug, but more to do with
Qjackctl being upgraded, and the upgraded version needing a library not yet
Comments as always welcome.
