Re: How to overwrite file conflicts when installing AUR packages with Yay

As mentioned in this reddit thread, you can pass

--overwrite 'filename'

to yay.
You should probably be careful with which files are going to be overwritten though.

Re: How to overwrite file conflicts when installing AUR packages with Yay

Only one package should 'own' any individual file or directory on your system. Using overwrite to bypass that rule will read to problems. If you have been using e.g. pip to install non-pacman packages system-wide will also lead to problems.

Post the full output and we will be able to provide more specific advice. Do not just blindly use overwrite.

Mod note: moving to AUR Issues.

EDIT: Whoops, didn't notice the date. filipcve, please refrain from necrobumping.

Closing.
