The packages have moved to the main repos now.  You are best to open a new thread asking for help.

Well, I'm kind of hesitant to since I don't *actually* have a problem now since downgrading.  I just want to know - are potentially damaging updates pushed through to the main repos very often, like this?

It depends.  We work hard so that these do not break your system.  But we are not called a bleeding edge distro for nothing...

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

Uhmmm.. people did a reinstall of *arch* because libssl.0.9.8 and libcrypt.0.9.8 had three marks different from libssl.1.0.0 and libcrypt.1.0.0. Have you ever heard of symlinks?

Which turns out to be the MAJORITY of the time.  (All of the time for an soname bump [IMHO])


PLEASE read and try to FIX/FILE BUGS instead of assuming other have/will.

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

I guess I'm not surprised that some users are having problems. (I am surprised by the ones who seem to have been so inattentive to the past few weeks of discussion of these changes.) But I haven't yet read any problem reports that *required* reinstallation. That may have been the fix the users best knew how to implement, but I haven't read about issues that couldn't have been resolved more conservatively.

@Allan, I'm not saying it's smart. I'm saying it would've worked.

No, it causes as many issues as it "solves"...

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

And why do you actually need to do it?   Updating your system is a far better solution...

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

If you want to keep doing "pacman -Syu" when you get "error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory", no one is stopping you...

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

After doing the ssl upgrade my  psi (jabber client) has been unable to connect to any jabber servers using ssl/tls. I have tried both the extra/psi package and the aur/psi-git with no luck.

Re: WARNING - openssl rebuild in [testing]

ramblurr - start a new thread please. This is the testing forum, and openssl 1.0.0 is no longer in testing.
