Copy and paste between local and remote machine does not work

In each of the links in "sources" the www should be swapped for downloads for them to work correctly.

aarch64 can be added to the list of supported architectures. Here's a patch:

Finally made experiment in another PC and deleted that symlink. Then installed with cleanbuild realvnc-vnc-viewer again.

Noticed BEFORE that action:

ls -l /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/

ls /usr/lib/*


ls -l /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ ->

ls /usr/lib/*

System rebooted fine at least one PC. Using also encrypted disk.

@jose1711 What do you mean, I've said file in my system?

Interfering manually into automatic software installation configuration sounds very dangerous behaviour. I did not create anything manually and if errors exist, these must be fixed same way, they appeared - automatically via installation, updating.

ls -l /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/

yay -Qo /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ is owned by libxcrypt 4.4.28-2

If to delete that symlink, I have no information, what could be broken. Seems very important library used by many system components.

jose1711 commented on 2022-03-08 16:32 (UTC)


The error you get (/usr/lib/ exists in filesystem) comes from the fact that you already have said file in your system. In order to fix the situation you need to remove (or rename if unsure) that file.

zeroconf commented on 2022-03-08 16:06 (UTC)

I already mentioned, that reinstalling is impossible and bringed out error messages.

jose1711 commented on 2022-03-08 15:41 (UTC)


then i would simply remove the file and reinstall.
