Poo. I've just got my new SD cards and put Arch on.
Came to this thread to go through the instructions and I've stumbled at the second hurdle.
typing pacman -Syu
it goes through core, extra, community. alarm, aur
then tells me I need to update pacman. Should we do it now? Choose Y
it does the dependencies
Proceed with installation? Y
three rows of 20/20 checking, loading, checking
then it bombs out with an error
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
hwids: /usr/share/hwdata/pci.ids exists in filesystem
hwids: /usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were installed.
So, should I carry on with my install and tell it No to upgrading Pacman? Or is that a bad idea?
Is there something else I have to fix first?
(Decided to press ahead anyway and reimage the SD card if it gets messed up).
