[Solved]Conflicting files while installing lutris

So I was trying to install lutris and there was a conflict with bitmap package

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
mesa-demos: /usr/bin/bitmap exists in filesystem (owned by bitmap)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

If I am not wrong, this package is important to Xsystem? So I doubt I should remove it. So, is it a bug with lutris? Or something else?

Which package?  'bitmap'?  No, that's not important to anything as it's not even in the main repos.  If you don't know why you have it installed, remove it.  It might be a dependency of some other AUR package you have installed, but definitely not of anything in the repos.

Unknown packager thing is kinda weird. Wews, so will it be fine to remove it? Since It does not seems to be required by anything. Or there is something more to take care of?

No output for some reason (neither does it return to the shell prompt, I just interrupted it) . So it means that this file is just a residue? Since `-Qi` option should tell if that package is installed or not? I am still a noob

You interrupted it and you think you have correctly retrieved the information about this package???

I don't know why it would take a long time to return to the shell prompt, but if it's taking a few seconds -- for whatever reason -- just leave it be...

I apologize, I figured that out after a while, just a while before your reply I made an edit! Sorry for this mess of edits/replies for anyone looking at the thread right now

Re: [Solved]Conflicting files while installing lutris

Ah.

Unknown packager just means you or someone else who didn't edit their /etc/makepkg.conf was the one to build the package.

It was explicitly installed and nothing depends on it, so it should be perfectly safe to remove if you don't think you need it anymore.

EDIT: you could try looking at the output of 'pacman -Ql bitmap' to see if it provides any files which you think you need or want.

Re: [Solved]Conflicting files while installing lutris

Given that it was built 30 seconds before it was installed, I'm pretty sure you are the unknown packager having used `makepkg -i` or some wrapper for makepkg to build and install it.

I honestly have no idea, also I do stuffs manually only after having reasons to, so it's very weird. But well, it's fine. Thanks everyone!
