    Default zypper dup: kernel-syms conflict issue

    I haven't seen this message before, so I'm in need of a solution or guidance to the follow message I get after conflict checks:

    Checking for file conflicts: ...[error]
    Detected 2 file conflicts:

    File /usr/share/doc/packages/kernel-syms/README.SUSE
    from install of
    kernel-syms-4.14.14-1.5.x86_64 (openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Oss)
    conflicts with file from package
    kernel-syms-4.14.11-1.5.x86_64 (@System)

    File /usr/share/doc/packages/kernel-syms/README.SUSE
    from install of
    kernel-syms-4.14.14-1.5.x86_64 (openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Oss)
    conflicts with file from package
    kernel-syms-4.14.12-1.5.x86_64 (@System)

    File conflicts happen when two packages attempt to install files with the same name but different contents. If you continue, conflicting files will be replaced losing the previous content.
    Continue? [yes/no] (no):

    In this case, I would go with "yes" to replace. It's only a README file, and the two versions of that file are probably identical. If they are different, you probably want the most recent anyway.

    I'm not getting that. But then I'm not installing "kernel-syms". Maybe a bug report is needed.
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;

    Thanks Nrickert,

    I went ahead with the install and it all worked out.

    Although it was only a README file, I was concerned by the "kernel" aspect of the message when updating my workstation.

    After the "zypper dup" I ran "zypper install -f Mesa-dri" to prevent problems, but messages said that it was a reinstall - Mesa-dri was not on the zypper updates listing.


    Cheers
