Hello all,

With the recent repo update for libgl, I wasn't able to perform a full
system upgrade (pacman -Syu) without uninstalling nvidia-utils-bumblebee.

Remove nvidia-utils-bumblebee? [y/N]

:: xorg-server and nvidia-utils-bumblebee are in conflict

I'm using a Acer 1215N EeePC, which requires the bumblebee project to
utilise my discrete graphics hardware.

The comments on nvidia-utils-bumblebee suggests that this was a problem
before, but I've only encountered it now with the updates last week:

How could I go around or fix this problem?
