looks like packaging issue - file is being replaced by directory which cpio can't handle
you can workaround it by removing lazarus and installing it again
You probably don't need to remove the whole package:
> # ls -ld /usr/lib64/lazarus/docs /usr/share/doc/packages/lazarus/docs
> lrwxrwxrwx ... /usr/lib64/lazarus/docs -> ../../share/doc/packages/lazarus/docs
> drwxr-xr-x ... /usr/share/doc/packages/lazarus/docs
Just check how it looks like on your system. If /usr/lib64/lazarus/docs is no symlink or /usr/share/doc/packages/lazarus/docs no directory, remove them and re-install the package:
> zypper in -f lazarus
thanks for your help. i completely removed that package and that fixed the problem. i was able to install lazarus without any conflict
