I have enabled developer mode to play with a few applications i was getting used to on my laptop like wget for downloading files with unstable connections. After updating to wget will not run anymore: wget: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory i tried to use "pkcon update" and to reinstall libssl nd wget but to no avail, also "pkcon search file" gives no results. I understand that this is not a priority, but can this please be fixed?

Forgot to mention that it has worked without a hitch before the update.

Release Notes say that openssl has been updated, i would guess that you need a new version of wget built against the new library

Thanks, i have disabled openrepos for now as there is not much of use there that works with SFOS 2 yet. Seems like pkcon still tries to access the repo despite that. Will now try to build a new wget from source.

@r0kk3rz It should work againts the new library as well but for some reason this particular wget does not use /usr/lib/ which is a symlink againts

Sounds like OpenRepos issue as wget is not part of the default repositories. But you can also use curl instead of wget.

Thank you for this reply. It was me being stupid, thinking that after disabling/removing the openrepos they are truely removed but they are obviously not. Seems like i'd have to leave alone openrepos for the time being.
