Problems installing kernel

so when i install a kernel (linux-tkg-bmq-haswell) from the settings, it didnt seem to be installed so i try installing it again, but then it output this error:

linux-tkg-bmq-haswell: /usr/lib/modules/5.9.13-98-tkg-bmq/kernel/net/netfilter/xt_cpu.ko.xz already exists in filesystem (owned by linux-tkg-bmq)
linux-tkg-bmq-haswell: /usr/lib/modules/5.9.13-98-tkg-bmq/kernel/net/netfilter/xt_dccp.ko.xz already exists in filesystem (owned by linux-tkg-bmq)

and a bunch more of that error. how can i fix it?

you only need to install one kernel from the tkg-bmq*

fixed it by removing the tkg-bmq kernel and then installing the tkg-bmq-haswell kernel

Hmm... the tkg kernels should probably conflict with each other if they contain the same files. Might be worth filing an issue on their issue tracker (or the AUR packaging page, depending on where the packaging files originate).
