I've just had a go at patching and packaging xord-x11-drv-synaptics package to give a new option for the orientation of the pad using this patch
This is fine except that when I come to install I get:
file /usr/bin/synclient from install of xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.5.0-2.fc16.a.x86_64 conflicts with file from package xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.5.0-2.fc16.x86_64
I thought since I was modifying an existing package I wouldn't need to worry about conflicts (apart from perhaps the release number, to which I appended ".a").
What step am I missing in making a functioning patched package?
