Apparently there is a compatibility problem between packages in my ARM installation of EOS on my Raspberry PI:
/usr/lib/chromium/chromium: error while loading shared libraries: libre2.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
$ ldd /usr/lib/chromium/chromium | grep re2
libre2.so.10 => not found
libpcre2-8.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpcre2-8.so.0 (0x0000007f96460000)
$ pacman -Ql re2 | grep libre2
Of course I updated everything with
pacman -Syu, yesterday, today, 5 minutes ago.
Thank you in advance if anyone can help me.
I am not using arm EOS, but I had a similar issue while trying to resolve another issue with the latest chromium, which resulted in me trying to downgrade chromium
downgraded chromium (116.0.5845.96-1 -> 115.0.5790.170-1)
(Then I was getting the exact same error)
What is the version of chromium on your system?
If it is 115.X then I think that’s your problem
libre2.so.11 is intended to target chromium 116.X
Chromium seems to be on 115.X on:
You could try downgrading re2 from your pacman cache. In my case (x86_64) this was:
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/re2-1:20230301-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
it is simply chromium package will need a rebuild…

Yes, you are right, my version of Chromium is 115.
Rather than manually downgrade re2, I prefer to wait for Chromium to be updated to version 116 and use GNOME Web (Epiphany) instead in the meantime. I assume and hope that Chromium will be updated in the next few days.
Yes, I hope it will be released in the repositories in the next few days
I checked up on this.
As @joekamprad pointed out, the PKGBUILD was updated 4 days ago.
However. the new package is not in the Archlinux Arm aarch64 repository yet.
So I created the following thread over at the Arch Linux ARM forum.
Hopefully, this can get resolved in the near future.
yea got me… just checked pudges post and wanted to write confirm…
And if you really need it… flatpak to the rescue
Yeah, because that will work with widevine… not.
hey welome to the forum. . you mean the flatpak does not have widivine support?
(was not testing that far)
no response and no change on the package…
last change yesterday without … already multiple commits to 116 version but not possible to build …
I know it is not a nice job to maintain Browser packages, always a lot of patches and changes and build fails en masse…
Archlinux ARM has resolved this issue. chromium-117.0.5938.48-1 has been released in the aarch64 extra repository.
After updating, chromium now boots OK.
