I have a new installation from the network, all packages up to date.
When I try:
pacman -S kde
"exiv2 requires gcc-libs"
And the same for other packages. where can I find gcc-libs?
Thanks, but I'm a bit confused, should I do a new installation using the base-cd? or just update pacman?
try updating pacman first. make sure u have the core and not current repo enabled in your /etc/pacman.conf and then pacman -Syu

Ok, I have pacman 3, but I don't have core repo in /etc/pacman.d how can I add it?
yes, I did it, but it doesn't work:
pacman -Syu :: Synchronizing package databases... current is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date :: Starting full system upgrade... local database is up to date [root@Escorpion pacman.d]# ls community current extra release testing unstable
[root@Escorpion pacman.d]# pacman -Si pacman Repository : current Name : pacman Version : 3.0.5-3 Groups : None Provides : None Depends On : fakeroot libarchive>=2.2.3 libdownload Removes : None Conflicts With : pacman-rc Replaces : pacman-rc Download Size : 823.28 K Installed Size : 0.00 K Description : A library-based package manager with dependency support MD5 Sum : c7450cf25093da4f8a9ba2719d0c4e58

Well, I changed the mirror of pacman.d/current to ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686
After this pacman is not in the repo anymore.
I'm confused with all of this. If I don't get it working like this, i'll install it again.
Try updating pacman first, then add the core repo to your pacman.conf. You can download pacman and install manually if you need to, just download ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686 … pkg.tar.gz then install with "pacman -U pacman-3.0.6-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz"
