Unable to install pkgbrowser from the CCR

(Ma Baker) #1

pkgbrowser runs nicely in Chakra. Since it it absolutely essential, why is it not yet an official package ?

without pkgbrowser one has next to no overview over one’s packs, which is very bad.

There is both pacman and octopi which provide an overview of installed and available packages.

… but with very poor and sparse features ! pkgbrowser comes to the rescue !

a true lifesaver ! how can any Arch Derivate distro ship without it ?

make ; sudo make install

and you’re good to go !

$ chaser install pkgbrowser

That’s it :yum:

on Gödel-beta (which I am testing right now), that’s not it.

Error: database not found.

manual install works much smoother.

I have no idea what you are doing, or what that is supposed to mean. If you need help, please see this and post in #help.

I interpret that as you wanting this topic to be moved to #help as you are having a technical issue. Please read the link in my previous post and provide the information asked for to troubleshoot.

Partial upgrades are not supported in Chakra, nor in Arch Linux.

pkgbrowser displays AUR instead of CCR, but is still very useful to the point of being essential.
