Installing packages with pacman...

Hi all,

If I install Arch via FTP & only a base install... how do I issue or find the commands to install packages i.e. KDE 3.4.1

pacman -A KDE???

I can find a list of packages but does not tell me what name to type in, also KDE is in the extra repo & so are others!

Also if I want to use ReiserFS/4 as my FS how do I manage that?

TIA

Re: Installing packages with pacman...

first update your system.
pacman -Syu
will do that. -y will refresh the db from the servers -u updates the  entire system.

Search the forums for reiser4 under the words "reiser4 is a great and how to"

Re: Installing packages with pacman...

Is there a list of package groups somewhere as well? ie: xfce, xfce4, gnome...

@ sudman: Checkout "pacmenu" for that- it lists all package groups, installed or not, and installs/uninstalls them.
