Is this update error an issue or no? Missing AUR Packages: libopenaptx

Greetings again lovely community,

It’s been a busy day! I just installed the latest updates right now via the terminal command yay -Syu and at the very end of it I did get something I noticed that may or may not be of concern. Missing AUR Packages: libopenaptx I haven’t done any installing stuff audio related to EndeavourOS, so I assume by default I have pulseaudio AND pipewire installed, or at least that’s what it looks like on my end. I assume also it’s safe to have both of them, though I have no idea if one or both are enabled.

In any case, is this Missing AUR Packages: libopenaptx output something I should be concerned about or need to file a bug report somewhere or are you all getting this same message too when you update your systems today? Thanks again as always for any help!

Here’s the full output of the update real quick for anyone curious:

You beat me to it posting a topic. I just got the error and that package has been removed from extra and no longer available. I installed the git package from the AUR. libopenaptx-git

Before installing it from AUR you should ensure it is still needed.

Did you try removing it?

No because it said it was a dependency of something so i thought i needed it? Am i wrong? :thinking:

I don’t know, what was it a dependency of?

glibc

Edit: Not sure i am right?

Any reason why this package or packages in general would get removed from the Extra repos I wonder?

Err…I don’t think a dependency of glibc would be deliberately removed from the repo. :smile:

pactree -r libopenaptx
libopenaptx

So why does it say that or am i reading this wrong?

It is pretty common for packages to be removed from the repos. In this case I wonder if was no longer needed since the transition from jack to jack2?

Why does what say what?

Maybe i don’t know how to determine the dependency then? I looked at the dependencies before i decided whether i should remove it or not. It said it was required by libc. So i figured because in the Arch wiki i looked it up and it said it was no longer available and removed from extra and to look in the AUR. The AUR has the git version so i installed it and it removed libopenaptx?

There are a lot of ways, two easy ways are:

  • Use pactree -r
  • Try to remove it with pacman -Rc and before confirming review the list of what else would be removed.

Well it’s too late for that now? I’m just trying to determine whether i could have just removed it. I supposed i could still do that with the git version?

Yes.

So is it pactree -r libopenaptx-git because that shows me it that same package. So it can be removed then?

I don’t know if this helps at all, but this is what it looks like for me after the update. Note I have no rebooted yet.




Yes

@Scotty_Trees
I guess we don’t need it then.

Edit: I guess i got mixed up on depends on instead of a dependency. :man_facepalming:

@dalto @ricklinux If I do a reboot will it automatically remove libopenaptx or should I remove it myself or just leave it alone?
