# I was getting an error with pacman:
1error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This happened when I tried to install my VPN daemon using the AUR, and that tried to update a single package instead of all system packages, and thus I had some issues with the libssl package. This broke pacman, sudo, systemd and MUCH more.
The only thing I needed to do is to reinstall openssl-1.1.0. So what I did is:
- Boot into an Arch GNU/Linux live environment.
- Mount the system partition (not boot, just /) using:
1mount /dev/nvme0n1p2 /mnt
Connect to the internet (iwd is easier than you might think) Pacstrap the openssl-1.1.0 package:
1pacstrap -i openssl-1.1.0 /mnt
Make sure it works; chroot into the drive and do something like
Umount your normal boot drive and reboot the system:
umount /dev/nvme0n1p2 reboot now
