noconfirm is one of the most discussed features of pacman, I was wondering what intelligent uses it has.
I only use to download the updates with:
$ pacman -Syyuw --noconfirm
So that pacman download all the files and I can do the update later without waiting downloads.
When do you use this --noconfirm feature?
alias pac-clean='sudo pacman -Scvv --noconfirm'
I am sure there are other uses.
A bit OT, but how do I rm the packages but keep the repos?
well, yes, automatic dl of updates overnight on a server.
then host a LAN httpd for all arch boxes on the lan, which first try to dld the updates through the server.
arch updatates are resource intensive
