upgrading glibc


I am trying to upgrade glibc. I already followed this guide but now I am getting this:

Code:
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...

Targets (1): glibc-2.16.0-3

Total Installed Size:   37.62 MiB
Net Upgrade Size:       0.87 MiB

checking package integrity...
loading package files...
checking for file conflicts...

OK, so you're trying to upgrade glibc on Arch Linux, and using the guide at the link you provided, is that right?

But the guide contains things like:

If thing X happens, then follow procedure Y.

It also contains options, depending on the initial state of your system.

So, in terms of what's covered by the guide, please tell us, what was the initial state of your system, which commands did you issue, and in what order?

Sorry for the lack of info.

At the initial state, when running pacman -Syu I got this:
Code:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
glibc: /lib exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
the first thing I did was
Code:
pacman -Syu --ignore glibc

So I tried to upgrade again and got the same result. Then I looked this and moved the /lib contents to /usr/lib and replaced /lib wit a symlink.

and right now, when running pacman -Syu, I get

Code:
glibc: /lib exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libBrokenLocale.so.1 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libSegFault.so exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libanl.so.1 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libc.so.6 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libcidn.so.1 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libcrypt.so.1 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libm.so.6 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libmemusage.so exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libnsl.so.1 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libnss_compat.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libnss_db.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libnss_dns.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libnss_files.so.2 exists in filesystem

glibc: /usr/lib/libnss_nisplus.so.2 exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libpcprofile.so exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 exists in filesystem

When I asked about the initial state of your system, I was considering to the following note in the guide.
Quote:
Note: for installs that have not been updated during 2012, it will save you some time to do:
Code:
pacman -U http://pkgbuild.com/~allan/glibc-2.16.0-1-<arch>.pkg.tar.xz
where <arch> is replaced by i686 or x86_64 as required. Add a single "-d" if needed.
So is the initial state of your system that, before starting the glibc update, you hadn't done any updates during 2012?

I had upgraded this year. That wasn't my initial state.
