Somehow during the latest system upgrade on my manjaro workstation i received the error message that the
wireplumber packages are in conflict and the upgrade therefore was dismissed. I found a guy having a similar problem over here and i wanted to document how i fixed that issue:
- check if you got both packages installed (
wireplumber). this should be the case.
- if yes: remove
wireplumberand do the system upgrade again.
After the (now) successful system upgrade, install
pipewire-media-session should be removed during this process and your system should be using
wireplumber from now on.
Actually, i don’t know exactly. My best guess is that i explicitly installed
wireplumber in the past and as
wireplumber replaces the
pipewire-session-manager this constellation kinda confused pacman. As it works again, i’m not that eager to find out.
For more information about the switch from
wireplumber, check this Blogpost in the Fedora Magazine.
