Manjaro x Pacman

Someone talked about this … rd

(Why do so many distro developers insist on reinventing the wheel?) :joy::joy:

Strictly speaking, pacman is just a front end for libalpm(3) so creating a new front end that is designed to work with Manjaro’s multiple repositories makes more sense than tacking stuff on top of pacman, IMO.

So far the subject matter is still high.

Interesting. I still have the odd package that just refuses to install with pamac yet pikaur will install it without issue. I’m not certain pamac is quite ready to be the primary package manager.

Yeah there are issues with pamac. Sometimes I have to use powerpill or yaourt or just use pacman. I’m not sure what is causing the glitch, but it does happen. :thinking:
