Conflict of "toolbox" and "bmenu" packages

“toolbox” and “bmenu” packages contains files with the same name /usr/bin/toolbox

Steps to reproduce:
pacman -S bmenu toolbox
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/bin/toolbox exists in both ‘bmenu’ and ‘toolbox’
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

@Chrysostomus Can you add toolbox to conflicts?

You should remove toolbox, it has been replaced by bmenu

It is not the same script.

toolbox from “toolbox” package is a unprivileged development environment manager. It manages containers.

Aah, it’s that one :man_facepalming:. I thought we already solved that, but turns out not. So, repackaging time…

Okay, It has now been fixed in the unstable branch. Sorry for the delay, I had thought I had removed the conflicting file months ago, but I had not updated the package. After the next update toolbox and bmenu can live happily together.


Here we are again in same conflict:

(95/95) checking for file conflicts
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
bmenu: /usr/bin/toolbox exists in filesystem (owned by toolbox)
