Thank you for pointing it out, installing grive-git worked for me.

Connecting to the google account however appears to be problematic due to some policy change by google.

@jkendall posted at grive-git that a solution could be found at:

@cray @insign

Have you used git? as the maintainer suggested? He hasnt updated this pkg in the aur but git is good.

I also saw the error on two if my arch installations:

grive: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Updated my computers, reinstalled json-c, rebooted, and rebuild grive from git and all is well in the world again

After getting the error about missing, I tried to reinstall the package with yay and then tried again with a clean build and got this error:

error: cannot convert ‘bfd’ to ‘const asection’ {aka ‘const bfd_section*’}
127 | bfd_size_type size = bfd_section_size(abfd, section);

When trying to clean-build the package I get the error encountered by @pmatts.

I switched to using grive-git and it does build successfully and runs without error.

@coxackie @sadid @thehungryturnip and anyone else experiencing the error, update your system, reboot and rebuild grive. It should grab the correct automatically
