Recently pamac-classic was finally fixed and I was able to finally install pacman 6. Turns out that the paralel download function is even better than I thought. :D The update process happens so fast that I can’t even see what’s happening in the terminal. :D Speaking of which, I also noticed that the process “mkinitcpio -P” happens about twice faster than before. :D :D
Bottom line - I love pacman 6! :D
Just used the newest version with ParallelDownloads = 5 in the /etc/pacman.conf file, and holy crap is it fast. I love it.
ParallelDownloads = 5
I was waiting for this update since the day it was released as alpha
same, I’ll just wait a while longer to update so paru and other AUR helpers work with it
It already works with pacman6 since pacman6-alpha. Updated just now, no problems, just need to rebuild paru once after the update in order to link with the new pacman libary Version.
paru-git was working with it, but the regular version got updated really fast after pacman 6’s release, I was in the matrix chat with the AUR package maintainer at the time
I’m sure it works with yay though right?
It’s out, yes, but updating pacman broke pamac-classic, so I’ve restored from a backup image and I’ve disabled updates for pacman and all packages related to package management (just in case) until the problem is solved.
I’m using pamac-classic as just a visual update notifier. After the update of pacman pamac-classic wouldn’t start (doesn’t show up in tray) and without it I can’t know when there’s an update available, so I did the only thing I could - restored from backup and disabled updates for anything related to package management.
How about using Octopi for updates-notifier via GUI (If you don’t want to run pacman -Syu once a day) ?
Octopi doesn’t get along with GTK, so I avoid using it.
