I'm trying to update the system, and cannot:
# pacman -Su :: Starting full system upgrade... warning: shorewall: local (22.214.171.124-1) is newer than custom (126.96.36.199-1) resolving dependencies... looking for inter-conflicts... :: perl and Term-ReadLine-Gnu are in conflict (perl-term-readline). Remove Term-ReadLine-Gnu? [y/N] error: unresolvable package conflicts detected error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies) :: perl and Term-ReadLine-Gnu are in conflict (perl-term-readline) ~
This is an innovation indeed. What to do? I assume the package perl-term-readline install the Perl package Term::ReadLine. Please correct me if I'm wrong. The Perl package Term::ReadLine does, essentially, nothing. (http://search.cpan.org/~flora/Term-ReadLine-1.07/lib/Term/ReadLine.pm)
This is a show-stopper.
I think is included in the perl core and that's why is conflicting ? ... I guess you installed it by hand (perl-term-readline from AUR).
Just remove it, perl bring this package in the core.
