Strange things happening with pacman package manager
I decided to update using "pacman -Syu", and it said:
$ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace kdelibs-experimental with extra/kdelibs? [Y/n]
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: kdelibs: requires phonon
I didn't know what to do, si I ran "pacman -S kdelibs" (BTW, phonon was not one of its dependencies). Then I tried to update again. Same thing! So I decided to run "pacman -Rns kdelibs" to get back to my previous state. But it says that some programs I have depend on it! How it that supposed to be if those programs worked before? Anyway, I decided to install phonon. But it said that it conflicts with Qt and asked me if I want to remove Qt!
What should I do?
