Is there a way to get pacman to show the package owner of a file which is a symbolic link? Note that I would like to know what owns the link file itself and not the file to which it points.
It's standard behavior as far as I can see.
$ ls -l /sbin/shutdown lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Oct 3 23:14 /sbin/shutdown -> /usr/bin/systemctl $ pacman -Qo /sbin/shutdown /sbin/shutdown is owned by systemd-sysvcompat 194-1
