since you've removed cloog-ppl from the repos, then couldn't cloog-ppl be add to "replaces" in the cloog pkgbuild?
I have made a fully unattended bash script which I use whenever reinstalling, so that I don't need to go through the same repetetive tasks again, but now when I today reinstalled, then my script didn't update the "core-installed" system, because cloog-ppl was in conflict with cloog, and as I use --noconfirm! (for the update part I use: "pacman -Syu --noconfirm && pacman-db-upgrade && pacman -Syu --noconfirm", the first -syu to update pacman itself and replace some apps...)
Also, in the mean time, then could you please tell me if it will be ok, and that I don't screw anything up, if I before the update command, then run 'pacman -Rd cloog-ppl --noconfirm', as 'pacman -R cloog-ppl --noconfirm' dosen't work because of the deps conflict... (pretty sure, but just in case I would appreciate a confimation on this, please!).
Thanks in advance---
@mods: Dohh! I had just pressed "submit", when I realized that this was the completelly wrong subsection!
I am really sorry for posting this here and so could you kindly remove it elsewhere, thanks!
(I had just read about cloog-ppl should be removed in a previous entry about gcc4.6 at arch-dev-public, and then stupidly went here and posted this! I don't know where my head was at during the submision, and again, i'm really sorry about that! )

That's the thing; I haden't updated in ages, since I had just made a reinstall of latest stable core-iso, and then runned pacman -Syu --noconfirm from a script... (I don't use netinstall since my wifi needs extra firmware/driver files and is rather unstable).
I've modified the stable iso to install base, base-devel, kernel-headers and wireless tools, unattended through aif and after reboot run a custom setup bash script, but which then won't update...
Anyway, if you're not going to add cloog-ppl to cloog's [replaces], then could you please just tell me if I in my script can add a 'pacman -Rdd cloog-ppl --noconfirm' before the 'pacman -Syu --noconfirm', without getting in to issues(the "safe" pacman -R cloog-ppl dosen't work), since else the 'pacman -Syu --noconfirm' will not update because of cloog/cloog-ppl conflicts?
Even though I have reinstalled allready, then i'm always maintaing a working reinstall/custom-setup-iso for future use and so I would appreciate to know if bypassing deps for that cloog-ppl removal(to get it to remove!) is an OK solution to add to my script in the iso so as the next line with the update(-Syu) will work...
Thanks in advance.

I'm getting this conflict on a fresh install, too. From 2010-05-core.

I also did a fresh install today and getting a conflict:
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: cloog and cloog-ppl are in conflict (cloog-ppl<0.15.10-2). Remove cloog-ppl? [y/N]
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: cloog and cloog-ppl are in conflict (cloog-ppl<0.15.10-2)
Any resolution on this? I too am updating this computer for the first time in way too long, and I'm getting cloog/cloog-ppl conflicts.
Off-topic: Mhertz, would you mind sharing your script? I really don't do programming but i've been wanting an unattended installation script for some time now. You can email it or post it here perhaps?
I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror. --Awebb
was having the same issue i did the following which seems to have worked so far
1) made sure i answered "Y" to all update requests, had to actually type "Y" at least once as the default offered was "y/n"
2) sudo pacman -Syuf
haven't got xorg working yet but seemed to complete the upgrade, this was vm from beginning of 2010, pre-pacman db upgrade
I have the same problem...

Hi, I just solved the problem with
pacman -R -c cloog-ppl
