• Error Upgrading "cuda-8.0.44-1-x86_64"


    The title says it all. I get the following error when I try updating my system:

    :: Retrieving packages...

    Any assistance is appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Did you install a package that has that same file (possibly from AUR) ? Or did you install cuda manually from source?

    Pacman is telling you that you already have /opt/cuda/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1 so it won’t replace it.

  • @derklempner If you can’t find the root of the problem and solve it in a clean way, try to apply a workaround: delete or, better, rename the existing file, so pacman won’t see it anymore in filesystem, then run the upgrade normally:

    sudo mv /opt/cuda/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1 /opt/cuda/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1-backup
    yaourt -Syua

    I believe it installed with ffmpeg-full-nvenc.

    That made OBS crash when trying to start it. It was complaining of a missing lib file, so I made a symlink for the missing file and still couldn’t get it to start. I asked a friend about the issue since he had something similar happen to him, so I’m just reinstalling ffmpeg-full-nvenc now.
