What does Chakra use for package management and installation?
pacman, which is also used in Arch Linux. You can access its documentation by running
man pacman in Konsole, or visit a copy of the manual page hosted on the Arch Linux website here. The following excerpt from that very same the manual page list a few examples of common operations:
pacman -Ss ne.hack Search for regexp "ne.hack" in package database. pacman -S gpm Download and install gpm including dependencies. pacman -U /home/user/ceofhack-0.6-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz Install ceofhack-0.6-1 package from a local file. pacman -Syu Update package list and upgrade all packages afterwards. pacman -Syu gpm Update package list, upgrade all packages, and then install gpm if it wasn’t already installed.
See this tutorial for more information on how to use
pacman will eventually be replaced by our own package manager, Akabei, that is currently in development. See this tutorial for more information on how to use
For installation, Calamares is used.
