Default xf86-video ***

Hi .

What is the easiest way to stop pacman trying to update all the
xf86-video* drivers for cards i do not have the system uses the
xf86-video-nouveau driver perfectly well but tries to install sis ati
sirrus trident and more

I know about adding files at the command line --exclude and about
entering a list in pacman.conf but is there a way that is quicker.


Ta .



Pete .

Why not just remove them?

# pacman -Rsc xf86-video-{sis,ati,sirrus,trident,...}

Why did you installed them in the forst place? If you uninstall what
you don't need, they'll not be updated.

You probably installed the xorg-drivers group. pacman doesn't fetch
those drivers if you instruct it to install a specific one.
