primus_vk>=1.3-1 update requires manual intervention

Looks like this might be coming down the pipe.

@philm

I wonder if the proposed command is correct, as <glob> in --overwrite was supposed to not have a leading slash for root directory.

pacman -Syu --overwrite=/usr/lib/libnv_vulkan_wrapper.so.1,/usr/lib/libprimus_vk.so.1

Maybe this?

pacman -Syu --overwrite usr/lib/libnv_vulkan_wrapper.so.1,usr/lib/libprimus_vk.so.1

The brave guys in unstable will confirm and inform us (to advance our knowledge...:wink: )

I just tested this with another package and provoked an existing-file-conflict: both commands have the same result and do overwrite the conflicting file.

It worked fine yesterday morning when I updated. It's good to read the Arch homepage prior to any updating (in Arch). Avoids surprises. :slight_smile:
