Of course, because you probably have [nonsystemd] above all other repos, which is what ThisIsMyAccount does not do. Newbie issues like this are caused by their inexperience, not devs mistakes

i made the default pacman.conf more complete recently - that
should help people put the repos in the right order, especially
when using octopi

I'm having this issue too. I have nonsystemd above all the other repos. I have moved it to bottom once and tried just for the sake of it. no change. I even tried "pacman -S nonsystemd/avahi-openrc". Still I get:

:: dbus and dbus-elogind are in conflict (libdbus). Remove dbus-elogind? [y/N]

I have installed from the latest openrc cli ISO just today and still having this issue. Everything is near default and a bare bones. Any idea to why this is happening?

dbus-elogind is deprecated, use nonsystemd/dbus

I updated dbus, this issue is now solved

Thanks.

I did a "sudo pacman -Syu" but it was complaining that there is a dbus service already there. I did "sudo rc-update delete dbus" and then upgraded and it's working fine. I actually got this when installing openrc-desktop and leafpad. I can install them fine now. So I can confirm it is fixed.

I think the OpenRC wiki page needs change. It has:

And restart with rc-service. Also make sure you are using dbus-elogind.

Unhashing the nonsystemd repo under /etc/pacman.conf solved this for me.
