Re: Problem regarding: gv

did you try to refresh your database before installing?
pacman -Sy gv

If the info in your databse is not sync with the mirrors you can get these messages because the md5sums are no longer the same.
If that doesn't work, remove the package from cache
rm /var/cache/pacman/pkg/gv-blabla.tar.gz
and try switching your mirrors around by moving a diiferent one to the top.

Re: Problem regarding: gv

Thanks,
it resolved.

Before I posted, I removed the package in /var prior to reinstallation.
As you suggested I changed the order of servers.  -- it works.
I suppose the 'gv' file in that server must be corrupted.
Thank you for your advice.
