Installing vim-fuller breaks automatic updates

I’ve installed vim-fuller manually not long ago to have syntax highlighting, which the default vim-full package lacks. But both packages contain /usr/share/vim/vimrc, which causes a dependency conflict. So I had to remove vim-full first.

Unfortunately this breaks the automatic updater, which want to reinstall vim-full, but cannot do that for the very same reason.

Feb 19 22:10:04 omnia updater[26942]: src/pkgupdate/main.c:202 (main):
[string "transaction"]:327: [string "transaction"]:151: Collisions:
• /usr/share/vim/vimrc: vim-full (new-file), vim-fuller (existing-file)
• /usr/bin/vim: vim-full (new-file), vim-fuller (existing-file)

So currently either we can have automatic updates, or syntax highlighting in ViM, but not both.

Hey yo, thanks for reporting. This needs to be addressed in the OpenWrt packages repository, where the package vim comes from. I will fix it there, and it is going to be part of the upcoming version of Turris OS - 5.3.7. :slight_smile:
