is there a way to make pacman use *.tar.bz2 files? it would be nice, since the download time would be shorter & people who use limited DSL internet could save some MBs.
Shemeta, there was discussion of this a little bit ago. Here's that topic.

There was issue with the bandwidth savings versus decompression time.
thanks for the info.
