Libgl and Nvidia-Utils are in conflict

Hi everyone.

I have the same problem as in this thread: Thread
My output of pacman -Qs dri is

local/dri2proto 2.8-1
    X11 DRI protocol
local/ethtool 1:3.5-1
    Utility for controlling network drivers and hardware
local/foomatic-db 1:4.0.17_20120712-1
    Foomatic - The collected knowledge about printers, drivers, and driver
    options in XML files, used by foomatic-db-engine to generate PPD files.
local/hplip 3.12.9-1
    Drivers for HP DeskJet, OfficeJet, Photosmart, Business Inkjet and some
    LaserJet
local/lib32-nvidia-utils 304.51-1
    NVIDIA drivers utilities and libraries. (32-bit)
local/libraw1394 2.0.7-2
    Provides an API to the Linux IEEE1394 (FireWire) driver
local/ntfs-3g 2012.1.15-3
    Stable read and write NTFS driver
local/nvidia 304.51-1
    NVIDIA drivers for linux.
local/nvidia-utils 304.51-1
    NVIDIA drivers utilities and libraries.
local/xf86-input-evdev 2.7.3-1 (xorg-drivers xorg)
    X.org evdev input driver
local/xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.2-1
    Open Source 2D acceleration driver for nVidia cards
local/zd1211-firmware 1.4-6
    Firmware for the in-kernel26 zd1211rw wireless driver

So, do I have to remove xf86-video-nouveau then? Because I used it in the beginning and I kept it to have an alternative if something is wrong with the proprietary driver. But I want to keep nvidia-utils, so is it safe to remove it?

Thanks!

Remove the 'xf86-video-nouveau' package which now depends on 'nouveau-dri' (before it was optional), and 'nouveau-dri' requires 'libgl=9.0' instead of just 'libgl'.

This solved the update conflict for my x86_64 system, so I would mark it [Solved].

Although I notice compiz-core 0.8.8-4 requires libgl and wonder why it doesn't cause a conflict?

nvidia provides their own (thus the conflict) libgl implementation in nvidia-utils. If you have either nvidia-utils or libgl, packages that depend on libgl are happy.

$ pacman -Si nvidia-utils | grep Provides
Provides       : libgl
