initscripts and locale.sh conflict in Arch linux

Standard

In a freshly installed Arch, the first command I execute is, of course,


# pacman -Syy

What was my surprise when I realized that it returned a error:


Error: validation of the transaction failed (file conflict)
initscripts: / etc / profile.d / locale.sh is already present in the file system

Googling a few gave me the answer, it is because I uncommented [testing] branch on /etc/pacman.conf and there is a new initscripts version which enter in conflict with locale.sh

To update the repositories, before pacman -Syy, first rename locale.sh with

mv /etc/profile.d/locale.sh{,.bak}
