[SOLVED] file exists in filesystem

Hi,

I'm having trouble installing mingw32-libgnurx from AUR
# yaourt -S mingw32-libgnurx
...
:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] y
(1/1) checking keys in keyring                                                                                100%

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
mingw32-libgnurx: /usr/i486-mingw32/include exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Indeed, /usr/i486-mingw32/include is owned by several packages, that didn't bothered pacman when installing from regular repos:
# pacman -Qo /usr/i486-mingw32/include
/usr/i486-mingw32/include is owned by mingw32-gcc 4.7.2-1
/usr/i486-mingw32/include is owned by mingw32-pthreads 2.9.1-1
/usr/i486-mingw32/include is owned by mingw32-runtime 3.20-4
/usr/i486-mingw32/include is owned by mingw32-w32api 3.17-1


I tried to remove all mingw path and reinstalling:
rm -rf /usr/i486-mingw32
pacman -S mingw32-runtime mingw32-pthreads  mingw32-w32api mingw32-binutils
But I still get the same error.

My box is up to date.
What's wrong ?

Re: [SOLVED] file exists in filesystem

Because /usr/i486-mingw32/include is a directory, and mingw32-libgnurx tries to install a FILE called /usr/i486-mingw32/include.
