Has anyone found a fix or workaround for the mkvtoolnix-cli dependency bug that broke with this update? I use the program regularly and I need to find a solution. I can’t even figure out where the arm64 packages are maintained online. According to the howto on the mkvtoolnix website, compiling it myself appears likely to be challenging.
I’ll reply to my own question. Downgrading brought it back:
sudo pacman -R mkvtoolnix-gui
sudo pacman -R mkvtoolnix-cli
sudo pacman -U fmt-8.1.1-2-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz
sudo pacman -U mkvtoolnix-gui-69.0.0-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz
sudo pacman -U mkvtoolnix-cli-69.0.0-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz
Then I changed /etc/pacman.conf by uncommenting IgnorePkg and adding the list of packages that must be held back (hopefully package name/syntactically correct):
# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup IgnorePkg = libfmt.so mkvtoolnix-gui mkvtoolnix-cli #IgnoreGroup =
I don’t know if holding back the library will break other stuff, but mkvmerge is likely to be more important to me, regardless.
