Toolchain updates

This will bring in a big amount of updated packages :tada:

glibc → binutils → gcc

https://archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/glibc/

https://archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/binutils/

https://archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/gcc/

Should not cause any issues … famous last words :grinning: but be aware could affect a lot of packages and AUR builds.

If you want to stay on the safest side wait a day with this update.

adding on 11.5.2022:

Thanks @Scotty_Trees already sumup current changes for all of us here:

Brb, I’m just gonna quickly ‘partially update’ my system, not rebuild any possible AUR packages, and I’ll prove you wrong!! :sweat_smile:

But in all seriousness, thanks for the post @joekamprad . In the meantime I’ll wait a day or two before I feel adventurous enough to test this all out! :enos_flag:

I just updated and only thing I noticed was -

==> dkms install --no-depmod vboxhost/6.1.32_OSE -k 5.15.23-1-lts
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.15.23-1-lts (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/6.1.32_OSE/build/make.log for more information.

Edit: it appears there was a change in gcc before release and only main linux package was rebuilt. The rest are on the way.

@akya So basically be on the lookout for another update for the LTS kernel in the very near future as well.

Oh yeah I got that, I just posted in case it was helpful for anyone looking for what failed to build etc.

I shall not be intimidated by such empty threats! :rofl:

Meh, just to live on the edge, I will not rebuild any of my AUR packages. This is glibc, a serious library, not some snake prog  scripting language interpreter or something… :snake:

So I did a YOLO update, just typed yay and hit enter. There was an update to linux-lts as well. Nothing broke, as far as I can tell.

Oh well. I was on testing for the last 5 days. No issues here on an all AMD system :wink:

No problems here either. Neither Netbook nor Desktop. Both running Plasma (beside other DEs).

There was a problem with this kernel build process, I read somewhere in another thread that there’s a rebuild coming “soon” (although a bug was only filed earlier today, https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/73795).

But, this highlights again to anyone reading why keeping two kernels installed is a good idea. :wink:

Yes. This is what I am seeing in /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/6.1.32_OSE/build/make.log as well.
What does it mean? Is it a gcc issue that needs to be addressed?
