I just installed arch last night and managed to get my network up and running in less than 20 minutes! So far, I am loving it! The problem I have is: how do I go about installing emacs with x.org server? When I try installing emacs it requires xaw3d which by itself asks for xfree86 which apparently conflicts with xorg.
In general, how to install packages and 'ignore' certain dependancies? I realize the popular opinion is that it's bad, but, for example, I know I don't need xorg to run just plain console emacs.
I'm coming from the world of Slackware and I'm sort of used to no-dependancy-checking so...
A very nice forum BTW,
pacman -Sd emacs
should do it

arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
