[solved] searching in "Name" in www.archlinux.org/packages

When searching for the kernel (the package is named "linux") I got like 300 irrelevant packages. I guess it is because it searches in the "Description" column. Can I search in the "Name" column?

Thanks, 100 irrelevant packages. That's better. "linux kernel" gives 40. smile

I use a shell function

apkg () { $BROWSER "http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=$*"; }

Compare the default http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=linux with http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?name=linux

 $ pacman -Sl {core,  extra, community} | grep linux 

And of course you don't have to search all three repositories if you know which one you want to look in.

Thanks, that helps. (Though it searches by equality, not by a substring.)

Wow, I did not realize that this combination of options makes sense. "-l" shows files in some package, and "-S" synchronizes packages.

I don't know why would you want to search the way jakobcreutzfeldt suggested if you don't need limiting to certain repos.
What's wrong with

pacman -Ssq | grep linux

?

It does with '-Q'. 'pacman -Sl' lists packages:

$ pacman -Sh
...
  -l, --list <repo>    view a list of packages in a repo
...
