expac hangs on a 'select' operation #4
I haven't been able to reproduce this on other computer but on one of them whenever I run expac (with any arguments) it never returns.
With strace, I see the process keeps doing a 'select' operation which timeout each time:
I'm running an uptodate Arch x86_64.
The 'select' is coming from gnupg, which might indicate a problem with your keyring. expac sets the pacman.conf equivalent of "SigLevel = DatabaseOptional PackageNever". I suggest looking to see if any of your repos are legitimately signed.
Strongly suspect this isn't anything that needs fixing in expac.
