:: installing fmt (10.0.0-1) breaks dependency 'libfmt.so=9-64' required by spdlog

I recently had this problem as well, though I'm not sure whether this is the recommended way to solve it (lol)

What I did was uninstall goverlay, mangohud and dependencies, which require spdlog:
sudo pacman -Rs goverlay-git mangohud
-Rs flag removes the package and dependencies but not the config files.
If you don't have those, try uninstall spdlog, checking what's not letting it be uninstalled, and get rid of those temporarily before the next step.

After this, update your system with garuda-update -a and then try reinstalling those and installing easyeffects.
sudo pacman -S goverlay-git mangohud easyeffects
They should install fine since their updated versions shouldn't depend on the outdated version of fmt.

If you have dolphin-emu-beta-git installed as well, you'll need to uninstall it and opt for a different version for now as it relies on another outdated version of fmt.


Although garuda-inxi was not necessary in this case, please provide it in the future regardless of what you think, as per the requirements of posting in the issues and assistance category. The help I've provided in this post is simply based on personal experience, and our setups are very different so it may not necessarily work for you.

EasyEffects also has a Flatpak, which, IIRC, they suggest using if the normal pkg install breaks.

I'm no audiophile, but I prefer JamesDSP with @dr460nf1r3 's settings.

Speaking of which, there is now a Material You app for JamesDSP. Needless to say that Iā€™m in love with it :yum:
