I'm getting the following output when trying to install koffice on my Arch 0.6 system:
[root@myhost root]# pacman -S koffice Targets: koffice-1.3-1 Proceed with upgrade? [Y/n] :: Retrieving packages from extra... koffice-1.3-1 [################] 100%| 13216K| 52.4K/s| 00:04:11 checking package integrity... done. loading package data... done. checking for file conflicts... error: the following file conflicts were found: /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/mathml+xml.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.palm.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.calc.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.draw.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.writer.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/x-kudesigner.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/x-magicpoint.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/x-vnd.kde.kexi.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/x-vnd.kde.kplato.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/x-vnd.kde.kugar.mixed.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/image/x-vnd.adobe.photoshop.desktop: exists in filesystem /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/image/x-vnd.trolltech.qpicture.desktop: exists in filesystem
Any ideas as to how I can remedy this?
Take this with a YMMV
I would just force it (pacman -Sf <kofficepackage>)
That will force it to overwrite those pesky files that already exist.
Now, I would assume that they are the same format first and second time around
Again YMMV.. but that is what I would try first
You could also see which package owns the files and then figure out more.
pacman -Qo /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.desktop

- Blaise Pascal
these files are now part of kdelibs 3.2.1-1
the thing is, that koffice should come new out, to be conform with the kde 3.2.1 --- the koffice 1.3 is made for older kde where these mimelinks are not existent in kdelibs
you can force it these are the same files
if a new koffice release do not come out soon, i will patch the actual one, maybe
