[SOLVED] linux-firmware upgrade

is it safe to delete the file

/usr/lib/firmware/carl9170-1.fw

or force the upgrade of this package?

pacman says it exist in filesystem,

and complains on conflicting files.

Re: [SOLVED] linux-firmware upgrade

Is it orphaned?

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/firmware/carl9170-1.fw

If nothing owns it, probably safe to delete, but just to be sure, rename it to something else.

EDIT:  I don't have that on my system:

% pacman -Ss linux-firmware
core/linux-firmware 20121118-1 [installed]
    Firmware files for Linux

% pacman -Qo /usr/lib/firmware/carl9170-1.fw
error: failed to read file '/usr/lib/firmware/carl9170-1.fw': No such file or directory
