@mrbit I do not know why there would be a conflict with util-linux. Is there more of an error message? util-linux does not even seem to require anything relating to uuid (could be wrong) but not sure how uuid conflicts with util-linux.

Hmm I will dig into this more then and see if I can work up a better solution.

As a temp workaround if you need to use this package, just remove the package, then remove each of those files then reinstall uuid and it should all go fine again. I just hit this on a test box as well. Sorry for the temporary hassle

pacman -Rdd uuid && packer -S uuid

idem, no install for conflict with util-linux 2.22.1-3 ????

I had the same error as mrbit. I used "pacman -Rdd uuid" as vwyodajl suggested and tried reinstalling it. Still didn't work. Here's more of the error output:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
uuid: /usr/lib/libuuid.a exists in filesystem
uuid: /usr/lib/libuuid.so exists in filesystem
uuid: /usr/lib/pkgconfig/uuid.pc exists in filesystem
uuid: /usr/share/man/man3/uuid.3.gz exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

pacman -Rdd uuid && packer -S uuid. For some reason i had to do the same with mine when I added back in the perl parts to the build. Just quick uninstall then reinstall and all should be kosher for you again. Was weird I had three boxes that did not complain and 1 that did just like that.

Let me know if that does not work for you and I will dig deeper.

uuid: /usr/lib/libuuid.a already exists in the filesystem

conflict with util-linux ??
