i just installed arch on the computer of my brother ... and run into a funny situation i never experienced before ... maybe it0s a repeat and you already know about it
1) install arch-0.7-base
4) pacman -S kde
==> error: xorg conflicts with xfree86
without background information, a newbie would be confused by this error.
1) pacman -S xorg
2) pacman -S kde
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
Yea, i've been confused about this some month ago .
Anyway, just can guess that it's caused since both, xorg and xfree are providing x-server, and there is no "standard" which arch uses for x-server? Does pacman still need a feature like this?
Ability is nothing without opportunity.
