I'd like to know who to keep certain packages up to date.
I have mirrored the whole current dir with rsync but i just need a few packages from extra.
Now i run rsync for extra with --delete and --existing which deletes the packages if they are old, then i have to download them manually with a ftp client again. Can't rsync do that?
im using cygwin rsync on my laptop, but not at home since i dont have such a good internet connection for that
i use this packages for installing and updating arch on different pc's, so i hardly need to download anything at home
.. i just want to automate this process
Her's an idea:
On your computers at home, you could do a:
pacman -Syup > url_file
This will update the db and put the url of the new packages in url_file instead of installing them. Copy url_file to your laptop and download the packages with :
wget -i url_file
