libXvMCNVIDIA is indeed gone, but there's now a which wasn't there before. I'm guessing it goes in /usr/lib?

Latest 310.14 no longer contains libXvMCNVIDIA, whatever that is. Heads-up for those who do know and who may be affected by that (it was introduced, according to the help, circa 2002)

@progdan It was only a way of saying, because that will cause failure of dependencies. My english is not so good.
I believe that if a program depend exclusively on the libgl, the check will fail.

"...if a value in the provides is not accompanied by his version, it is ignored..."

Uhm, that's not what the wiki says. It's not ignored, unless a package depends on a specific version. I consider this not really a problem in case of this packages.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-08-03 10:45

This line is wrong:

provides=('libgl' "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}-${pkgrel}" "libcl" "opencl-nvidia")

if a value in the provides is not accompanied by his version, it is ignored. libgl, libcl and opencl-nvidia is being ignored in its variable.

Replace "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}-${pkgrel}" by "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}", never place the release of the package.

from wiki:

An array of package names that this package provides the features of (or a virtual package such as cron or sh). Packages that provide the same things can be installed at the same time unless conflict with each other (see below). If you use this variable, you should add the version (pkgver and perhaps the pkgrel) that this package will provide if dependencies may be affected by it. For instance, if you are providing a modified qt package named qt-foobar version 3.3.8 which provides qt then the provides array should look like provides=('qt=3.3.8'). Putting provides=('qt') will cause to fail those dependencies that require a specific version of qt. Do not add pkgname to your provides array, this is done automatically.

mrk3004: lib32-nvidia-utils depends on nvidia-utils which is in the conflicts field of this package. Removing nvidia-utils removes lib32-nvidia-utils and nvidia as well, so there's no need for having lib32-nvidia-utils in conflicts here. If you have used something like pacman -Rdd, then it's your responsibility to remove the other packages manually.

I think it should include as conflicting, because here I had trouble installing this version with the official version already installed. I had to manually uninstall the package that worked.

mrk3004: on filesystem, it does not. But if you want to run 32bit apps, you need lib32-nvidia-utils-beta.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-05-04 12:08

it does not conflict with lib32-nvidia-utils ?
