I'm trying to install vlmc which requires vlc-git. After a long compile, I run
pacman -U vlc-git-va-20100317-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz
and get these errors:
loading package data... checking dependencies... error: replacing packages with -U is not supported yet error: you can replace packages manually using -Rd and -U error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies) :: vlc-git-va: conflicts with vlc
What gets me is the last line. Why should this conflict with vlc?
