@MacTavishAO Hmm this looks like an issue on 6.9 kernels.

I'm using linux-zen kernel, 6.9.2.zen1-1

This was fixed upstream here:;a=commit;h=70f560fc22212f733647c9121c26bbb2307f2e10

EDIT: Passing --nocheck is a suitable workaround, I was able to play insurgency sandstorm haha

@Pepse The provides/conflicts on lines 20-21 might be confusing your AUR helper. Try installing the package files with pacman -U.

Can someone help me to solve this problem? I'm fairly new to Arch and this is killing my brain

Apparently Ramazottii had the same problem, but both lib32-glibc-eac and glibc-eac are having that problem

I can't reproduce these issues as packages build fine on my system. Could you paste tst-preadvwritev2.out and preadvwritev64v2.out to a gist website and share with me so I can take a look?

You can also try passing "--nocheck" to makepkg.

Could unstable overclocking/undervolting be at play here?

I have the same issue as @MaKaNu

Apologies, it seems like the recent switch to Wayland fixed the issue.

This package addresses only problems caused by absent DT_HASH. Some games have other problems. Patches at Frogging-Family/glibc-eac.

@MacTavishAO OpenSUSE seemed to have worked for me, additionally it works on the Steam Deck's current version of SteamOS. I can gift you the game if you want.

Updated to latest official PKGBUILD and set TIMEOUTFACTOR to prevent false testing failures on slower systems and network conditions.

@MaKaNu please try rebuilding now. If you're confident it's a false positive, you can try passing --nocheck to makepkg.

@cncz Unfortunately, I cannot provide debugging symbols through as this is not an official package. You need to build this package with debug enabled. Take a look here:

@markmann I have no way to test your claim as I don't own that game and I couldn't find any information online from Linux users apart from 2 unhelpful protondb posts. If you know of any distro that can run this game please tell me so I can take a look at their glibc building process to see if I can figure it out.
