[i686/libxcrypt]: prevents system upgrade

Description

This library doesn't seem to be installed currently on my i686 system. It seems the upgrade fails on conflicting files as it includes files which are already on my system namely:

/usr/include/crypt.h
/usr/lib/libcrypt.so -> libcrypt.so.1

where /usr/lib/libcrypt.so.1 -> libcrypt-2.31.so

I attach a screenshot of my upgrade attempt. Thanks for your time and Parabola.

the arch32 devs are aware of this - if you need to upgrade today, run this command:

# pacman -Syu --overwrite=/usr/include/crypt.h --overwrite=/usr/lib/libcrypt.so 

or just wait a few days until it is fixed

We should have re-posted their article from the Arch 32 news in ours
https://bbs.archlinux32.org/viewtopic.php?pid=7351#p7351

Sometimes I wonder if it's worth to maintain i686 based on Arch 32, their packages are always breaking. I've known ppl who has left Parabola i686 due to this. The solution I use to reduce the brokenness is to enable the testing (and some time the staging) repos. I suggest you to enable them, doolio

Thank you both for the quick response.

I was able to successfully update my system today.

Thanks Megver83. I'll do as you suggest.

This bug can be closed from my perspective.
