Of course, ‘’ is missing;
Of course, timeshift does not rsync /var/cache/pacman/pkg
Of course, I get your (mocking?) “[EndeavourOS] Summary” today Feb 17th, 2022 at 14:49 CET+1;
Of course, ls -l /var/cache/pacman/pkg/glibc-2.35* gives Feb 11th, 2022

…Of course, (trying to) downgrade glibc would require at least removing lib32-glibc - an honestly I see no reason to add my own mess to yours.

Of course, I cannot/don’t want to wait for realvnc to upgrade;
Of course, I can luckily still use ‘nomachine’/nxclient/nxserver: yet I am SO disappointed.

So, dear Gents… Any freakin’ hint?
Kind regards, Piero

There’s an AUR package that provides compatibility for this:

This is in the AUR.

I’m sure you’re aware that your system is your own, and it’s not the responsibility of the EnOS developers and maintainers to keep your system running, especially when you go and use random third-party software?





Thanks a lot. Really.
