After git packaging package version conflicts

After the exciting weekend, I dared to run an upgrade today.
I can also upgrade without any problems however I have 2 newer versions in the system unlike the package management.
These are dracut and yad.

~> yay

 -> dracut: local (059-1) is newer than extra (056-2)
 -> yad: local (12.3-1.1) is newer than extra (12.3-1)
 there is nothing to do
~> yay -Ss "dracut|yad"

    A fork of zenity - display graphical dialogs from shell scripts or command line

Both versions of the programs appear once under Extras and once under Endeavouros.
What would be the best course of action now?

You need to ensure the endeavouros repo is above the arch repos in pacman.conf.


Thank you, that was it. Didn’t think about it anymore. The error always sits in front of the computer. :computer: :rofl:


i dont seem to have the eos entries in pacman.conf anymore after the update. what are they?

Did you overwrite your “old” pacman.conf with pacman.conf.pacnew?

If positive, add the following above the rest of the repos:

SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist

The .pacnew file is shipped with pacman from Arch and doesn’t contain EnOS’ repo.


thats exactly what i did
thanks a lot


Fixed this for me too, thanks!
