Rebuild the whole system?

I've been quite amazed, but I really couldn't find any way of rebuilding my whole system with this famous ABS. The strange thing about it is, that I read in the docs, that it is possible with one command :?

So - is it possible, or not? Do I have to play a lot with makeworld or srcpac?

PS. Okay, I am used to Gentoo, so what? tongue

Re: Rebuild the whole system?

One command to rebuild all my system with my defined flags, that would be cool 8)

.....well it's not possible atm

[edit] ....didn't know about makeworld  :oops:

Yeah, Makeworld - it's like Disneyworld, for geeks. tongue

Seriously - it's part of pacman. No man page, but you get help if you run it with no args.

8)  nice...

made my first package 2 minutes ago by the way  big_smile
I have a problem with ArchCK though  :?  probably going to make a new thread about if I'm not able to find the solution (thus far .. no luck)

ABS and AUR are quite interesting to say the least  8)

How's that?

So the RIGHT method to get software is "pacman -S foo". If I want to compile then I have to go to /var/abs/boo/foo and "makepkg -i"? Why isn't it described detailed anywhere?

hmm...the only thing i have under /var/abs/ is /var/abs/local/ (which is empty btw) and the log file.
is this because i cleared the cache in the past?
if so, is there a way to rebuild the system still?

to get the PKGBUILDS in /var/abs

I couldn't really find anything usefull. Okay - it is described how to compile one package, that's all. Do I even have to use "find" in /var/abs to compile my package? This is the ultimate ABS? Srcpac seems to make a little more usefull.

But I can't still can't find anything about this famous one command...

Re: Rebuild the whole system?

try

makeworld

in a console prompt

NOTE : make a backup of your sytem BEFORE you use any of the options of makeworld


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
