I was thinking of trying out mplayer , the cli video player …
I choose to use $ pamac install mplayer instead of $ pacman -S mplayer just for the fun of trying out … But to my surprise, it is 1.6GB size and have taken forever to download …What is it ? it is still downloading
Looking at arch package size, mplayer should only size 2.2MB… why 1.6GB ?
Should i cancel the downloading command ?
Have i did something seriously wrong ?! I am nervous now. :-p
Hurry up guys… it is 740MB already
I have read through pamac install --help and man pamac … it didn’t mention anything about what pamac install does. pamac install --help : Install packages from repositories , path or url.
It didn’t mention anything about update system…or what else it does apart from install package from repo…
I was running pamac install , and pamac upgraded my whole system.
But in man pamac never mention that it does upgrade system first than install package…
This is not a big deal, but since it never mention that pamac will do upgrade first than install package (pamac don’t do partial update/ install)… Or is it that i miss something … or i don’t know how to use man/ help .
