Pacman cannot satisfy dependencies because of missing libgl


I am using AMD catalyst driver, which should be sufficiend replacement for libgl. However, as multiple packages depend on libgl, I can't update the system. Are there any workarounds, or some way to solve this problem?

[root@sigma skyer]# pacman -Su
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
warning: removing 'libgl' from target list because it conflicts with 'catalyst-utils'
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: intel-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: mach64-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: mga-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: r128-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: savage-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: sis-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
:: tdfx-dri: requires libgl=7.11.2
Thank you for your time,

Are you using those packages? I'm guessing you have an AMD card, which means those other *-dri packages shouldn't be needed. What happens when you try to remove them?

None of those are required for your video card, they can be safely removed.

Alright, worked.

I admit I do not exactly understand this graphics card drivers stuff.

Thanks for help, problem solved.
