[SOLVED] mesa-libgl and nvidia-libgl are in conflict

:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: mesa-libgl and nvidia-libgl are in conflict (libgl). Remove nvidia-libgl? [y/N]

I don't have mesa-libgl installed... but using nvidia resp. nvidia-libgl

What's this all about? Why is it in conflict with a package not installed?

Please post full output of pacman, and use [ code ] instead of [ quote ].

You're doing an update and something is trying to install mesa-libgl which conflicts with the already installed nvidia-libgl.
Find out which package is it.

I had the same problem a couple of hours ago, but I waited a while and now the problem has gone away.

Well, I quoted the 'full output of pacman' - there was no code in it.

Why should an already installed package trying to install another package afterwards?

Thanks for the comment!
Strange as it is, the conflict is gone by now... I wonder what initiated it.

When pasting configs, code or command output, please use [ code ] tags https://bbs.archlinux.org/help.php#bbcode

like this

It makes the code more readable and - in case of longer listings - more convenient to scroll through.

It is important you post it in full, even (or especially) when it's so short. You should include the command you used, not just the output.

You are installing new versions of some packages. They may have different dependencies from the versions you have currently installed, so you will end up installing some new packages too.

I beg your pardon - I thought ':: Starting full system upgrade...' says it all.

In this case we can assume you run 'pacman -Syu', but it can also be 'pacman -Syu foo' etc.

I don't understand what you mean here.

You're right, somehow I thought pacman displays the list of updates first (before the conflicts). My apologies.

I've just been bitten by this. Performed that update yesterday and on booting today (first reboot since) my desktop was unusable. Changing window manager from Compiz to Metacity worked but I've now reverted to nvidia-libgl and Compiz is happy again.

BTW, **WHY** are you suing 'pacman -Syuu'?
