Trying to get my feet wet with Manjaro to see if it is any better than Kubuntu. Already encountered a problem similar to Kubuntu. To be specific to my case (but I seek a general solution):
In AUR the package hamlib-git hasn’t been updated since 2018. A total of 36 other packages require this, so it is quite an important library. There is a more updated version called hamlib-git-python3 but that breaks at least a couple of the 36 packages that depend on it. This is basically the dependency hell that DEB based systems have, so in the end you just end up compiling everything from source yourself.
So how do I go about this? What is the best route to get a package updated in AUR without breaking the whole system? Still install from source? Write my own AUR entries? Maybe another way?
Hope to hear suggestions and work-arounds. Cheers!
