I have installed Dolphin Emu and I want to install a fork of Dolphin called Primehack. Installing Primehack through yay gives me several errors such as these:
dolphin-emu-primehack-git: /usr/share/dolphin-emu/sys/Resources/[email protected] exists in filesystem (own
ed by dolphin-emu)
dolphin-emu-primehack-git: /usr/share/dolphin-emu/sys/Resources/Platform_Gamecube.png exists in filesystem (ow
ned by dolphin-emu)
All my research into these errors has told me to override the files but I don't want to do that. I want both versions of the emulator installed. How do I do this without breaking something?
Are you absolutely sure it is possible to have both versions as in they would not conflict with each other?
Um, I didn't even consider that a possibility. I just assumed there would be some way to install to a different location using the package manager. Then again, I don't really understand how Arch manages packages on a technical level.
dolphin-emu and install primehack. Uninstalling
dolphin-emu should keep your configuration, games etc. so when you want to use one of them, uninstall the other one.
Ok that seems you cannot have both installed at the same time, unfortunately.
Primehack should include proper conflicts in their package to make that clear.
According to the AUR package:
dolphin-emu-primehack-git conflicts with dolphin-emu-git.
If you check the latest comment, it seems someone manged to create a patch / change the PKGBUILD to install dolphin-emu-primehack-git along with dolphin-emu (not the git version, I think).
