gcc update breaks with gcc-multilib

What should I do? I cannot just uninstall gcc-multilib as many packages depend on it.

$ $ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing 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...
warning: grml-zsh-config: ignoring package upgrade (0.7.4-1 => 0.8.1-1)
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: gcc-libs and gcc-libs-multilib are in conflict. Remove gcc-libs-multilib? [y/N] y
:: gcc and gcc-multilib are in conflict. Remove gcc-multilib? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: libtool-multilib: requires gcc-multilib=4.8.0

Re: gcc update breaks with gcc-multilib

It does this all the time. I suggest removing gcc-multilib while ignoring the dependencies (see man pacman), updating and installing gcc-multilib again. Something is wrong with those updates.

Re: gcc update breaks with gcc-multilib

akurei, i had  the same messages a while ago everytime gcc was updated in extra but multilib lagged behind.

On my system the problem was caused because i had missed replacing a compiler (gcc-objc in my case ) with its multilib counterpart.
As long as gcc-libs-multilib was the same version as gcc-libs everything worked.

I suggest you run pacman -Sl multilib and check if you miss something in that list you do use the multilib version of.

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: gcc update breaks with gcc-multilib

After waiting a time the multilib repo seems to have catched up and the update went through without any problems.
Thanks!
