The new version of glibc has compatibility issues with WSL1.

You can use WSL2 to avoid it. <!– Old version of ArchWSL(<17121600) uses patched glibc named glibc-wsl. Because old version of it has bug in spawni.c.

It has been fixed in the official glibc package (=> 2.26-7).

For that reason no patched glibc is needed anymore. –>


fakeroot is using SYSV IPC by default. but WSL1 does not support it now.

You can use fakeroot-tcpᴬᵁᴿ package instead. (WSL2 doesn’t require that)

Download fakeroot-tcp-1.23-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and run pacman -U fakeroot-tcp-1.23-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz to install.


qt >=5.10 library doesn’t work in WSL1. This is an issue with WSL.(Please see Microsoft/WSL#3023)

Please execute this line on root: strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/

MySQL 8/MariaDB

MySQL >=8 uses the native AIO interface by default. WSL1 does not support it, so you need to configure it. Edit /etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf for add innodb_use_native_aio=0 to [mysqld] section.



Systemd D-Bus daemon doesn’t work in WSL1. I recommend use dbus-x11ᴬᵁᴿ. Download dbus-x11-1.12.16-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and run pacman -U dbus-x11-1.12.16-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz to install.

For start D-Bus daemon, run:

sudo mkdir /run/dbus -p
sudo dbus-daemon --system


WSL does not supports systemd. I recommend use systemctl alternative script or bottle.


You can use a systemctl alternative script. However, this is only partially compatible.

Download systemd-altctl-1.4.4181-1-any.pkg.tar.xz and run pacman -U systemd-altctl-1.4.4181-1-any.pkg.tar.xz to install.


You can use systemd bottle “subsystemctl” or “genie”.

Using it, you can run systemd completely.


You can download PKGBUILD and build it.

See here for how to use it.
