Can I mix Chakra and Arch Linux packages?

Repositorio AUR en chakra
(totte) #2


Since Chakra uses its own repositories, they are no longer compatible with those of Arch Linux. Arch Linux uses an entirely different update cycle for their packages as well as uses different naming conventions. Chakra is more conservative in updating the [core] packages, only updating those when needed, and proven upstream to not bring regressions. Since the Frameworks and Plasma packages rely heavily on [core] packages, you can understand mixing in packages from Arch Linux will eventually break your system.
