Problems installing koffice

I'm getting the following output when trying to install koffice on my Arch 0.6 system:

[root@myhost root]# pacman -S koffice

Targets: koffice-1.3-1

Proceed with upgrade? [Y/n]

Re: Problems installing koffice

Take this with a YMMV

I would just force it (pacman -Sf <kofficepackage>)

That will force it to overwrite those pesky files that already exist.

Now, I would assume that they are the same format first and second time around wink

Again YMMV.. but that is what I would try first

Re: Problems installing koffice

You could also see which package owns the files and then figure out more.

pacman -Qo /opt/kde/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.desktop

Re: Problems installing koffice

these files are now part of kdelibs 3.2.1-1

the thing is, that koffice should come new out, to be conform with the kde 3.2.1 --- the koffice 1.3 is made for older kde where these mimelinks are not existent in kdelibs

you can force it these are the same files

if a new koffice release do not come out soon, i will patch the actual one, maybe
