Yes, the LFS-pacman packeage management line is now a dead end. If
anyone wants to take it over be my guest.
i don't like where pacman 4 is going and it requires many more
additional packages to make it function.
I am following the pacman devel on Arch for now and it seems a bit
crazy. I wanted a simple package management system and it looked like
pacman would fit the bill. I tried upgrading the version of pacman to
the latest version in my "build system" built things got a bit too
ugly. I then looked for different packages managers and RPM seemed to
be the best choice. I was used the lastest rpm version from rpm.org (
there has just been a new release so I will need to grab that).
I like the srpm files as it captures all the files used to create the
binary rpm package so you can recreate the binary package when ever you
Using rpm is a requirment for "Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard" so I
guess it makes me more compliant...Yipee
