Nvidia conflicts during update

I have had problems with my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 card earlier. See here.

When I tried updating my computer today with:

sudo pacman -Syyu

I got the following problem.

warning: removing 'libxnvctrl' from target list because it conflicts with 'libxnvctrl-470xx'
:: libxnvctrl-470xx and libxnvctrl are in conflict. Remove libxnvctrl? [y/N]

There were mentions of a similar problem here, here and here.

But none offered a solution.

How do I proceed so that I do not run into difficulties?

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Hi @deshmukh,

Have you tried to update with pamac?

pamac update

@Mirdarthos Thanks. No. I have not. I remember reading earlier that sudo pacman -Syyu from a text console (Alt-Ctrl-F2) is the best/ safest way to install updates. So, I have been doing it that way.

Is pamac update a better/ recommended method?

In your other post you say that installing nvidia driver 470 solves you problem. So you should also use ‘libxnvctrl-470xx’ on your system.

‘libxnvctrl’ package should be for actual nvidia driver (at the moment 495). So if it was my machine I would choose ‘yes’ and remove ‘libxnvctrl’. :grinning:

Personally, I always recommend it. Plainly because pamac is built for Manjaro by Manjaro.
