texinfo 5.2 upgrade fails

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
texinfo: /usr/share/info/texinfo.info-3.gz exists in filesystem

Anybody getting this?  Tempted to just clobber the file and move on with it, but somehow "it's just an info file" doesn't help me with the principle of the thing...

Re: texinfo 5.2 upgrade fails

% pkgfile /usr/share/info/texinfo.info-3.gz
core/texinfo
community/xemacs

Looks like it's time for a bug report.

Re: texinfo 5.2 upgrade fails

Why do I keep telling myself it's fine to uninstall pkgfile?  Too useful to get rid of, self.  xemacs was the key to a succesful search, it turns out -- bug's already been filed: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/37165

Since you already have it on your system, "pacman -Qo /usr/share/info/texinfo.info-3.gz" would have worked, too. That's the normal way to check what package owns a file.
