Then either:

# rm /usr/lib/ (duh)


# pacman -U --force nvidia-utils-beta-361.18-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I get the same problem as Doctor_Mooch

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/
error: No package owns /usr/lib/

# pacman -Qo /usr/lib/

Ive been getting an issue when trying to update this package through Yaourt.

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
nvidia-utils-beta: /usr/lib/ exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Upon searching this issue, some have indicated it may be a conflict with Mesa. Any ideas?

@buxit: it doesn't need any symlinks, see

buxit commented on 2016-01-12 08:05

for this to work with bumblebee / primus i have to add two symlinks manually:

ln -s "/usr/lib32/nvidia/" "/usr/lib32/"
ln -s "/usr/lib/nvidia/" "/usr/lib/"

(maybe the bumblebee package should do this, since it claims to provide nvidia-libgl?)

Father Plattner is back! I remember that bug report now, where you mentioned that library is not required ( I shall have it removed then and inform Svenstaro, who's probably not subscribed.

Thank-you for your time.

E: This was apparently also reported way back in February 2008:

You shouldn't need That's for really old X servers that don't supply their own
