Vterm won't open

What happened?

Suddenly, trying to open vterm wouldn’t work and i got this error message

byte-code: Module could not be opened: "$HOME/.emacs.d/.local/straight/build-28.1/vterm/vterm-module.so", "libvterm.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

(solution below)


Running doom sync && doom build . I think this was caused by a recent arch update that split libvterm to libvterm01 and libvterm (version 0.2), which caused the library links to break. rebuilding solves the issue


I am curious: do you know why it solves it? Regeneration of environment?

I assume vterm-module.so no longer links to the correct path of the system vterm, so you have to recreate it.

Yup I had to mess around with these packages manually too.
