Is it safe to uninstall pipewire-jack?


There is an update on all of my application in pamac but I can’t update this pipewire-jack. It says here that it has conflict with jack and jack2.

Is it okay to remove this pipewire-jack? will this not mess up my system? because I can’t proceed to update because of this.

Thank you.

this is already known. yes you can uninstall it and update afterwards. please read the thread

If pipewire-jack can be uninstalled without removing additional dependency packages it is a safer option than removing jack2 and dependency packages to get other packages updated
The package can be reinstalled after updates if system has any audio problems

jack2 and pipewire-jack are both an implementation of the JACK API. pipewire-jack now properly provides jack, which means that it can no longer be installed side-by-side with jack2.

I think you can remove jack2. Run pactree -r jack2 to see what depends on it before removing.

sudo pacman -S pipewire-jack

This will automatically remove jack2 and then you can carry on with the update.

error: unresolvable package conflicts detected

:: pipewire-jack and jack2 are in conflict

sudo pacman -S pipewire-jack lib32-pipewire-jack


it is still giving me the error.

I just

sudo pacman -R pipewire-jack

I restarted it and somehow I still have audio.
