Docker Compose stopped working after inadvertently upgrading Python

Hi all,

I’m new to Manjaro, having used Mint for a long time.

I recently installed a new package with pamac, and didn’t notice that the prompt also contained a large number of other upgrades, which lead to me inadvertently upgrading Python.

Until then, I had been using docker-compose quite happily, but I now get the following error:

[18060] Error loading Python lib ‘/tmp/_MEID4M1Nr/’: dlopen: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The newly installed version is Python 3.10.3+

I’ve installed pyenv to see if I can use an older version but I’m getting this error when trying to install it:

pyenv install 3.7.1

BUILD FAILED (ManjaroLinux 21.2.5 using python-build 20180424)

Any advice appreciated.


Don’t install docker-compose from pip (or whatever) but use the repo version.

Try installing libxcrypt-compat and try running the command again.
