pacman: error while loading shared libraries: liblzo2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Yeah, I hit ^C, my fault. Manually copied liblzo2 binaries back and all works.

I'd just want to suggest improving how package replacements are handled by Pacman. What I see from the output is that lzo2 package was removed without a replacement being installed right after that. It would be installed at some later point I guess. If lzo package was installed right after lzo2 was removed, it would be really hard to get system to the state I encountered.

Thanks.
This task depends upon
