Hi there. I'm having trouble installing git. Everything else I've installed has been fine (and I have installed other things while this problem persists)
$ sudo pacman -S git resolving dependencies... looking for inter-conflicts... Targets (2): perl-error-0.17018-1 git-1.7.12-1 Total Download Size: 2.66 MiB Total Installed Size: 17.00 MiB Proceed with installation? [Y/n] :: Retrieving packages from extra... error: failed retrieving file 'git-1.7.12-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from mirror.aarnet.edu.au : The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
I leave pacman running through all the other mirrors, and it just cannot find the file on any of them.
When I look at http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/archlin … os/x86_64/ I see that there is git-126.96.36.199-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz which is named differently to the target pacman is looking for (git-1.7.12-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz)
I'm new to arch and pacman. Where could this inconsistency be coming from, and how would I go about resolving it?
EDIT: Just found the -y option in the pacman man page. Solved!
