kdebase-3.3.1-2

I solved this by deleting the "default face" that I had set in "Login Manager" "users" tab.

errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

kmplayer is probably easier to fix... IMO... if this is the right choice.

It's pretty weird though... how KDM stores the settings in the programs dir, instead of some /etc/ subdir or something.

Re: kdebase-3.3.1-2

u can also fix this by adding force to the upgrade

pacman -fSuy

Yea, any time I get a "[file] already exists in system." message I just do -f and force it to write over the existing file.  :oops:

Re: kdebase-3.3.1-2

I use -f every time something like this happens (I'm a 9months ArchLinux user btw)... but this time I've encountered this somehow "special" error...

  opt/kde/share/mimelnk/audio/x-ms-wma.desktop: exists in "kdelibs" (target) and "kmplayer" (target)

...and I've told myself the following things:
1. well.. that's new: 2 packages that need to get installed conflicting with eachother before they're actually installed
2. eh.. this will be easily fixed by forcing the install of one of them... (I can force in a with a "-Suf", but I preffer manually forcing with "-Sf")
3. ok.. so we have to force an install... but.. which one would it be: kdebase or kmplayer?
4. what if I -Sf kdelibs.. and -Sf kmplayer afterwads? won't file X think it belongs to kmplayer afterwards? what would pacman -Qo say...
5. if I do as I thought before, what if somebody decides to fix kmplayer by removing file X from it... and I upgrade with that new package. Wouldn't file X dissapear from my system, because, as I did the forcing the first time, X belongs to kmplayer now (or not?)... how should I know that I should reinstall kdelibs?
6. what if I do the other way (kdelibs instead of kmplayer)... and it happens the same...

Now, what do you think about that?!?...
... until you find out an answer, I have decided to force the upgrade of kdelibs (just in case) in the future...
