Easter eggs in Arch?

Are there any easter eggs in Archlinux?

If anything, I think there should be one in pacman where it becomes like or references the computer game of pacman smile

That's not an easter egg. There's just a lot of swearing in the Linux source code.

That is an interesting link! It's interesting that most swear words form the same pattern.

Re: Easter eggs in Arch?

Not arch specific but there is the "ddate" command.
Arch needs something like apt-get moo.

It's better with the pacman-color package from AUR.

An easter egg refers to a hidden joke, feature, etc, so I don't think cowsay qualifies.

Re: Easter eggs in Arch?

I could have sworn I saw that somewhere directly in the grub2 package's content, too:

grub2 wiki entry wrote:

Warning:  The next generation of the GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB2) is still under development and therefore all usual points apply. GRUB2 may fry your computer, burn your house, make you breakfast or eat your cat. You've been warned! For most people, except those with more exotic configurations, GRUB2 should just work.

... but I can't find it any more there. Was it (a) just my imagination or (b) in a readme / warning that was only temporarily part of the grub2 package?

Well, no matter which - as noone in general ever really reads more than the first sentence of those "warnings" , that could count as "hidden" - and joke too => Easter egg. wink


(maybe the one who wrote it into the wiki knows if it's been put somewhere in the package at some point too? I think I was still using debian, when I saw it first *mmmmh* - I hate it when my memory doesn't add up hmm )

I don't understand this one, how do you get it to work?


I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror.  --Awebb

Well It doesn't work for me:

error: config file /etc/pacman.conf, line 35: directive '-> ILoveCandy <-' not recognized.

And I've put it every where in pacman.conf...
