Nothing provides libperl.so.5.16()(64bit)

OMLX4 znver1

[’\n Problem: conflicting requests\n - nothing provides libperl.so.5.16()(64bit) needed by hexchat-2.9.6.1-1.x86_64’]

Got this when trying to install hexchat. Had it happen earlier for a different peice of software.

I beleive these are all the repos i have enabled (i left the ones not operating on because they are supposed to come online eventually … grabbed the text from a update when i first reinstalled LX4):

Edit: Noticed it’s saying X86 … I suppose that means it’s not built for znver1? Perhaps if i enable the X86_64 repos it can find the library needed?

No X86_64 in the configs like i thought… I assume it’s like the multi-arch software which isn’t in the repo files? Not really sure why that is.

FWIW, I’d suggest to install whatever by CLI (sudo dnf --refresh install foo) and to forget use of dnfdragora regardless.

Really, forget dragora :grin:

sudo dnf clean all ; dnf clean all ; dnf repolist

I rebuilt Hexchat for x86_64, znver1, and i686. It installs and opens on x86_64 now.

There’s going to be 100’s maybe 1000’s of packages that need rebuilding.

And I should be sleeping.

On Znver1 it’s getting this, does install however, thanks by the way.

Edit: I set the python home, but that only got rid of the library issues, not the site issue. (Broken python package maybe?)

It’s been fixed on my end. Must’ve fixed itself after a reboot, or something i installed did the trick.
