Yay in EOS repo is outdated

pacman is now at 6.1.x and that makes EndeavourOS/yay outdated requiring libalpm.so.13 instead of .14

Are you using the testing repos?

It looks like pacman hasn’t moved to 6.1.x yet.



Yes, they seem to be:

He has been informed about the issue of running the test repo’s so there is no problem that wasn’t created by his adding and keeping the test repo’s.


I should not be running test repos. No problem, I will stop using testing repos. However, If I am using the testing repos, shouldn’t I report out-of-date yay?

You can report it to the maintainer, but they will probably tell you it’s up to date still.


If something is in testing that doesn’t make something that isn’t in testing out of date. The testing is for those who work development and not meant for everyday users.


No, if we update yay to match the libraries in the testing repos it could stop working for those who aren’t using the testing repos.


I agree. I concede. Can I delete this thread?

just mark it as solved and the thread will close and die its natural course.

It looks like pacman 6.1.x is in core now and I’m getting this error after updating today.

That’s correct, it just got in core an hour ago. For now, you can uninstall yay and build it from source (aka install the yay AUR package); it’ll detect the new pacman and work with it.

If you use paru, you can make the paru-alpm-v3-git package.

(This causes “error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”)

The endeavourOS repo needs to recompile yay. Not sure if we should start a new thread.

same here

yay: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You need to wait a bit for the yay in EnOS repo to catch up with the latest pacman.

I’m sure @manuel is already on it.
