[Solved] binutils-multilib and binutils are in conflict

Just enabled [multilib] repository and upgraded my system except for anything that depends on binutils-multilib because pacman thinks that "binutils-multilib and binutils are in conflict." How does one go about resolving the conflict?

Re: [Solved] binutils-multilib and binutils are in conflict

binutils-multilib should provide binutils as well, so this is the expected behaviour.

Thanks, replacing the package with the multilib equivalent did it. I didn't think removing a core package for one that provides 32bit compatibility to be safe, but it makes sense.

Re: [Solved] binutils-multilib and binutils are in conflict

Solved here too.

pacman -S binutils-multilib

Then it replaces binutils.

Just weird that pacman won't replace it wit the standard -Syu even if I hit yes, but it will if I manually do it.


Don't panic !

Re: [Solved] binutils-multilib and binutils are in conflict

Every time I try to compile bin32 stuff from the AUR and then something "normal" afterwards, I have to fiddle with this. Since gcc is the only relevant dependency, it is not so annoying anyway. I made it an habit to reinstall the usual binutils after fiddling with multilib stuff.
