Broken system after upgrade (i think icu package)

I just upgrade my system and all has ***. I cant start gdm (gnome also) and more apps like firefox and more. I was able to log into wmii and get access to better Internet browser.

uname -a
Linux etnyx-arch-laptop 3.6.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 5 11:57:22 CET 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

pacman -Syu
:: Synchronising package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
 there is nothing to do

ldd /usr/lib/firefox/libxpcom.so
...
libicuuc.so.49 => not found
...

cat /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log
/usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.49: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I think all this mess was made by icu(50) https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/icu/. How to get libicuuc.so.49 back to system? Or is it something else wrong?

should someone help me get my system back online?

Re: Broken system after upgrade (i think icu package)

Are you running any packages from the AUR? Any of them that link to libicuuc.so would need to be rebuilt after the upgrade.

You didn't answer my question, though. Even if FF and GDM are from the official repos, you could have problems if any of their dependencies are from the AUR and link to that library.

pacman -Qm will give you a list of all packages you have installed that aren't in the standard repos.

Super, pacman -Qm helps a lot my system works again thx for help :-)
some package deleted some rebuilded. Im not sure what helps but my guess is consolekit (del) or hartbuzz-git (rebuild) got some dependence on icu.
