Finally managed to run into a package problem smile

But truly, I'm stumped. I searched the forum, read the news and tried to interfere manually but all to no avail.

Any pointers muchly appreciated.

Remove binutils? [y/N] 

You could select "y"....

No, I can't. I use packer and it runs straight through after asking about "Proceed with installation? [Y/n] y".

I tried removing binutils manually with pacman but got into a dependency hell.

Have you tried to remove forcefully?

Re: SOLVED binutils and binutils-multilib clash, packer can't handle deps

Nope but Allan's vociferous advice pointed me in the right direction:

pacman -S gcc-multilib

I thought packer was simpler some kind of pacman wrapper. Well, it appears it ain't.

Will let the developer know and am marking this as solved.

Many thanks smile

Packer is not meant to be used as a pacman replacement. I think even its creator will agree to that. Then again, he might not. He's that kind of guy.

I noticed that once, noticed it twice, but this time it may actually stick...

Force remove binutils? I'm a bit scared to do that, without some kind of official OK.. it's just too system-y a package to blindly throw it out. Or am I wrong? (It has been known.)

I use pacman for handling repo packages and packer for the AUR ones - works fine.
Are you having the same problem as OP or are you asking whether 'pacman -Rdd binutls' is OK?

It actually is... or at least it is not majorly damaging.  Unless you want to build stuff of course.

Re: SOLVED binutils and binutils-multilib clash, packer can't handle deps

I was having the same problem, and not confident in the solution. I do build stuff from the AUR, but if something fails I can just go back again I suppose. So long as everything still _runs_ OK, I can deal with potential build trouble.

Cheers

The solution works a treat - just leave it to pacman.

Re: SOLVED binutils and binutils-multilib clash, packer can't handle deps

Any further advice on this.

# pacman -Syyu
....
:: binutils and binutils-multilib are in conflict. Remove binutils-multilib? [y/N]
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: binutils and binutils-multilib are in conflict
# pacman -R binutils
error: 'binutils': target not found

Attempting to remove binutils-multilib (probably unwise) results in a cascade of dependencies.

Bad form to answer one's own post ....

Solved: ggc-fortran was (unexpectedly) installed. Replacing with gcc-fortran-multilib resolved everything.
