I updated the system today and wasn't able to boot intoo X. After all the reason for that was that I had installed a newer version of catalyst-utils that doesn't support my video-card. There is community/catalyst-utils 12.8-0.3 and catalyst-hd234k/catalyst-utils 12.6-1. I can only use the later.
Still when I run a system update pacman want's to update to the community package. How can I prevent?

Check the wiki at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … g_upgraded.
I'm not sure if you can specify a 'repository/package' combination though.
I don't want to skip any further updates. I'm using a repository for older ati cards, eg catalyst-hd234k, the community repository is for the newer cards.. Problem is that both packages have the same name and the community one has the newer version. I'd need a way to somewho blacklist the community version.
I don't know how this was handled before, mayb the version numbers where the same? Community version was updated today which seems to have caused the problem..
in /etc/pacman.conf just put the catalyst-hd234k repository above the core repository and you will not have those kind of conflits
That did the trick! Thanks a lot!
