When attempting to update to gpm 1.20.3-1, you will most likely get the following error message: error: could not prepare transaction error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) gpm: /usr/lib/libgpm.so.1 exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded. This error arises because the /usr/lib/libgpm.so.1 symlink became disassociated from the package (FS#9949). This is fixed in gpm 1.20.3-1 but its upgrade needs to be forced: # pacman -Syf gpm # pacman -Syu
