Can you give an exact example of a package that fails like this?   This seems to be in the realm of a partial update.

Edit: I can see this...

Also the new toolchain doesn't move the --enable-install-libiberty to binutils. Do you think it's worth to open a bug report? I installed the new staging toolchain. so far no issue.

It is as if every improvement people provided patches for was ignored...

Edit: I am told this was intended "just to get the update" and other things will be merged in the coming weeks.

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

Hey people,
thank you for posting here. Your voice is heard and while compiling the toolchain this thread helped a lot!
I intentionally went for a fast release to have glibc 2.35 out rather soon than to make a lot of changes with the first release after months and a new maintainer.
I'm looking at the patches now and start running tests.

Turns out that if libx265 is compiled with latest binutils (as the variant in [testing] is), then this is "fixed".  Now to figure out why...

Any chance you want to open a bug report with more explanation than a very long mailing list link?

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/73708
Brief summary glibc upstream expected CET to be left off as it was by default until kernel support was finalized.  Without kernel support it does not work,  with a kernel supporting the current proposed interface it will not work as expected and can produce segfaults.

obs-studio-git from AUR. I'm using the staging repo by the way.

EDIT: Manually rebuilding some packages from staging repo, made errors gone away.

Thanks a lot! FWIW I've installed the toolchain from testing and compiled a couple small packages (termite, yambar-git, personal PKGBUILDS) without any issues - so far everything's working smoothly here...

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

Thanks to all for getting this into testing. If I install it however it doesn't quite work yet for my packages. Is there any way to trigger packages that need new glibc to reinstall or just be patient? I guess I could switch some distribution packages to -git versions and if they compile, great?

Edit: Got everything working, thanks all

"doesn't quite work" is the vaguest description of a problem...  That gives us nothing to go on to fix your issues.

Looks like the core glibc package was updated last night. Thanks to the maintainers
