Re: powerpill reborn: pacman wrapper for faster downloads

Hi Xyne,
Is it possible to ask confirmation before download everything in powerpill and bauerbill? And add to bauerbill posibility to edit PKGBUILD files? Used to do it very often, when I used yaourt.

Error on your end?

Edit: seems to be fixed

Re: powerpill reborn: pacman wrapper for faster downloads

There is a problem, when there are many packages to download via rsync, as rsync has hard coded arg limit of 1000. Maybe this should be considered in powerpill, so that so many packages are not downloaded with a single command.

@x4fyr
Are you hitting a 1000 package limit on a regular upgrade? I'm just curious because you're the first person to report the issue.

I've added the dealing with the limit  to my todo list and will try to get to it soonish.

Re: powerpill reborn: pacman wrapper for faster downloads

It was a regular upgrade on a system I haven't used some months. I dont think too many people use powerpill+rsync and don't upgrade their system with many packages that infrequent. Imho it is a very special case, so no hurry needed.
I circumvented it, by first upgrading just core and then the rest.

The limit in rsync is actually not 1000 files but 1000 arguments. So it will be a bit less, as the options will count into the limit, too.

Re: powerpill reborn: pacman wrapper for faster downloads

Rsync commands are now split and run in parallel to handle the limit.
