Greetings, fellow Habicats!
We recently did a full refresh of the Habitat core plans
Wondering why we did this? Check out this blog post for more details.
This was a massive update - 1.5 years worth of updates to some packages. We have moved to a monthly cadence for these refreshes to avoid a change that massive again.
Some issues with Habitat use on older kernels emerged after the refresh. For a full explanation of this, check out this blog post.
To help mitigate issues with Habitat on older linux kernels, we had to pin some dependencies in the Habitat components including hab-plan-build. The hab-plan-build component is what is used to build all Linux packages in a studio or on Builder.
If you wish to use these dependencies with a plan, you will need to pin them in your plan to the pre-base plans refresh version (again, this is temporary until our multi-architecture work is complete). Here is the known list (if you find more, please feel free to add them) and the pre-base-plans-refresh idents:
