pacman -S kde -> xorg conflicts with xfree86

i just installed arch on the computer of my brother ... and run into a funny situation i never experienced before ... maybe it0s a repeat and you already know about it

1) install arch-0.7-base
2) boot
3) -Suy
4) pacman -S kde
==> error: xorg conflicts with xfree86

without background information, a newbie would be confused by this error.

workaround:

1) pacman -S xorg
2) pacman -S kde

Re: pacman -S kde -> xorg conflicts with xfree86

Yea, i've been confused about this some month ago smile.

Anyway, just can guess that it's caused since both, xorg and xfree are providing x-server, and there is no "standard" which arch uses for x-server? Does pacman still need a feature like this?

Re: pacman -S kde -> xorg conflicts with xfree86

seems so, yes - we need a default for the virtual dependencies!
