Pacman install all pkgs

big_smile Gents;

   Is there a pacman command to load all packages in cache?  This should include all dependencies and sync, right?

Re: Pacman install all pkgs

Well, by "cache" do you mean the packages in /var/cache/pacman/pkg, or all packages in the arch package repositories?

If you mean /var/cache/pacman/pkg:

# pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*

If you mean all packages in the current repo:

# pacman -S `pacman -Sl current | awk '{print $2}'`

That will request ALL packages in the current repository, but it's probably not what you want.  Pacman will not install certain packages that conflict with each other (eg, kernel and kernel-scsi) so the operation will fail with a "package conflicts detected" error.
