    nvidia


    I am attempting to install the nividia drivers using pacman.
    I do
    Code:
    pacman -Sy nvidia
    Then I recieve this error.
    libgl-dri conflicts with nvidia, delete libgl-dri(Y/n) y

    libgl-dri is needed by mesa
    libgl-dri is needed by xmms


    I haven't tried the traditional way yet.
    Will do that tommorrow if I can't get this to work.

    Ooo, first post in the new section

    When I ran into this, "pacman -Sf nvidia" worked for me.

    Have you tried it this way?
    Code:
    pacman -Rd libgl-dri
    pacman -S nvidia
    You might have to use the f switch to remove libgl-dri but it gets reinstalled with nvidia. Not sure it'll work but it's worth a try.

    That command removed libgl-dri just fine, thanks ozar.
