I compile my own kernels, and I don't want pacman to ever touch /usr/src/linux or anything in /boot
Is there a nice clean way to do that?
Does the NoUpgrade line in /etc/pacman.conf work for whole directories?
You use NoUpgrade or IgnorePkg in pacman.conf so that pacman will not upgrade
of course you can still pacman -S <pkg> if you wish
I think the best way is to pacman -R kernel26 kernel24 kernel26-scsi kernel24-scsi. After all, if you don't want pacman to touch those places, don't install the freaking packages!
