Where is ABS?


Hello, the archwiki tells me to install ABS wich is on the repos https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Build_System#How_to_use_ABS

But “sudo pacman -S abs” doesnt find anything. What am I suppose to do?


I won’t claim to be an expert in this area, but it could be that the software isn’t in the Manjaro repositories, it seems that manjaro have their own tools. I found this post which might be relevant.


manjaro got manjaro-tools does works with the github basicly idont know exact :slight_smile:

is a bit similar almost


I’ve searched abs package in AUR but I’ve not found it:




ABS works only in Archlinux and is not for Manjaro.
In Manjaro you can use buildtree with the -a flag, which will download and later update the complete Archlinux package tree to your harddrive. Then you can build them with makepkg
buildtree is part of manjaro-tools-pkg :slight_smile:


Thanks for the reply!! :slight_smile:

Could it be possible a link to the manjaro wiki where this is explained for newbies?



About buildtree there isn’t really more to say than man buildtree :wink:
On makepkg you will find tons of information, for example on the Arch wiki


ABS is not available yet. you will have to work with PKGBUILD files and makepkg for now.


ABS wil not come to manjaro, manjaro has as oberon mentioned :wink:
