what is to do?

Basically, exfatprogs is a newer, updated version of exfatutils. You are probably better off with exfatprogs.

IIRC, exfatutils is needed for kernels prior to (I think) 5.4.

Generally when you get a prompt like this in pacman, the correct course of action is to accept the default offered.


thx @Stagger_Lee

I just did the update as well, but didn’t get that warning message, any thoughts? I’ve been running EndeavourOS Gnome for 2 months now, mostly on the LTS kernel.

 there is nothing to do

It is because the dependency change was reverted. If you want to switch them out, just install exfatprogs

Ah no worries. I don’t know the pros/cons for the exfatprogs vs exfatutils, so I’ll just stick with what I have installed right now and not worry about it since it seems like a trivial thing :wink:

I believe that exfatprogs uses the newer exfat support in the kernel. I would switch if you can.

Hmm, I didn’t even have the package exfatutils on my system and I didn’t see it listed anywhere on Arch/AUR website search either. Went ahead and installed exfatprogs without any issue or warning to report, I’m assuming because I didn’t have exfatutils on my system.

That is probably because is it exfat-utils

Ahh very well! Either way, exfat-utils wasn’t installed on my system either, but thanks for the clarification :wink:
