Hey everyone,

Ive been kind of frustrated lately because I haven't been able to update
any of my pacakges because of a conflict between cairo and cairo-lcd.
Here is the output from pacman.

        [maddog39 at desktop ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
        :: Synchronizing package databases...
         core is up to date
         extra is up to date
         community is up to date
        :: Starting full system upgrade...
        resolving dependencies...
        looking for inter-conflicts...
        :: cairo conflicts with cairo-lcd. Remove cairo-lcd? [Y/n] n
        error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
        error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
        :: cairo: conflicts with cairo-lcd

I obviously want to keep that package and I even entered it in
pacman.conf under HoldPkg and seems to have no affect. I dont know what
I should do.
