I am repeatedly receiving the following error message…
Failed to prepare transaction: conflicting dependencies openexr and ilmbase are in conflict
Here’s a screenshot of the message.
I remember clicking on some prompt that mentioned
ilmbase but I don’t remember much more than that.
I’d appreciate any help or advice.
By the way, I installed EndeavourOS a few days ago. I like it. It works fine.
I’m not a techie therefore I find the endless debates about “Linux flavor A vs Linux flavor B vs Linux flavor C” to be mostly irrelevant. Except for package management (for example, I wearied of having old versions of applications), I don’t notice any significant differences between EndeavourOS and “buntus” (Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc) or Puppy Linux, all of which I have used previously. Once I set up my applications and environment the way I like, they all seem to work the same for me.
If I hadn’t wanted updated applications (via Arch’s rolling releases) I’d still probably be using a variant of Xubuntu.
As to the Arch fanatics who make an argument analogous to, “People who drive cars should learn to mine iron ore, open a steel mill, and manufacture their own cars.” Well. I’ll leave them be.
