I just did a fresh install of Manjaro and I’m in the process of installing some apps, but I’ve run into a problem. Whenever I try to install an app with optional dependencies such as K3B the Add/Remove Software app crashes if I select any of them. If I install without any of the optional dependencies it works just fine. I ran it from the command line and I see this error when it crashes:
(pamac-manager:43560): GLib-CRITICAL **: 20:57:24.025: g_strsplit: assertion ‘string != NULL’ failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Any ideas on how I can fix this? Usually I don’t care about the optional dependencies, but for some things like K3B they’re critical.
I dont know about pamac not working.
Well, I do , but this particular bug may be new.
Of course … you can use old reliable pacman by just naming the packages;
sudo pacman -Syu k3b cdrtools dvd+rw-tools vcdimager emovix cdrdao cdparanoia
(Taken from `pacman -Si k3b`)
Optional Deps : cdrtools: for CD burning with cdrecord
dvd+rw-tools: for DVD burning support
vcdimager: for VCD burning support
emovix: for bootable multimedia CD/DVD support
cdrdao: for disk-at-once (DAO) mode support
cdparanoia: for CD ripping support
Which version of pamac are you using? @tempest2084
Not sure. I’m using the 6.6 Kernel so it’s whatever comes with the latest fresh install of Manjaro. Is there a way to check the version?
Thank you that got it installed. Although I still want to know what the problem is because I still need to install some other packages with optional dependencies like WINE (and boy does it have a lot of them)
pacman -Qs pamac
will show us your version(s), though it should match your mirror.
