I did a system restore back to yesterday because I deleted one of the nvidia files, hoping that would help, but it didn’t. Now I have the original error, which I forgot to mention. The error I showed was after trying to remove one of the files that were supposedly conflicting.
Here is the other one:
nvidia-450xx-utils and nvidia-418xx-utils are in conflict
could not satisfy dependencies:
unable to satisfy dependency 'nvidia-418xx-utils=418.113' required by linux54-nvidia-418xx
Warning: removing nvidia-418xx-utils breaks 'nvidia-418xx-utils' required by lib32-nvidia-418xx-utils
Add lib32-nvidia-418xx-utils to remove
Alright. That’s a bit vague… you can update everything except the conflicting package, if you want. But if you want to update everything (including to the latest video card drivers) you will have to manually remove the package and then do the update.
If you tell me which of these options you want to go for, I can help you from there
No, I’m not new to Manjaro. I’ve used it off and on for a few years, but I’m not an expert or a programmer or anything like that. Just a regular person. I’m not a gamer but I use Firestorm for Second Life. And, yes, I use a browser.
Alright. Thanks for the info. You strictly wouldn’t need to update to the latest Nvidia drivers, then. But we might as well just do it so that you don’t have to do it again at the next update.
Open up a terminal and write sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-418xx, then sudo pacman -R linux54-nvidia-418xx lib32-nvidia-418xx-utils and reboot. After rebooting, open up a terminal again and write sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-450xx, reboot again, open up a terminal sudo pacman -Syyu, reboot and everything should be up-to-date
Aw, shucks. Okay, looks like you have to enter tty.
When you get to the grub menu, press ‘e’ on the first entry. There should be a line that starts with ‘linux’ and ends with a ‘3’. Skip to the end of this line, press space and enter another ‘3’ at the end (DON’T ADD/REMOVE ANYTHING ELSE) and press ‘F10’.
