pacman-optimize on SSD
pacman-optimize only tries to reduce fragmentation of the files right? If that is the case perhaps we should include a note that this probably won't help much on an SSD. —This unsigned comment is by F4hy (talk) 18:27, 29 March 2013. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Should the wiki no longer recommend this package? -- I'm guessing it shouldn't.
Also, is pacman-optimize less important than in the past? -- I am genuinely unsure about this.
- The maintenance of AUR has nothing to do with that of itself, it is packaged separately and even in the AUR. Anyway, I'd keep the section until pacman-optimize is removed from .
- The reasons why it is not very important nowadays are improvements in pacman itself (mentioned in the ML post linked above), increased speeds of HDDs and the advent of SSDs.

Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#aria2 doesn't work without leading slash, i.e.
-d / turning file names to
//var/cache/.... The article mentions this, but it doesn't mention why. -- Alad (talk) 05:28, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
- You would have to go way back to track this. It seems to have worked without
-d /even in 2006: , .
I guess that simply nobody asked the right question...-- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:30, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
- Oops, it does not work without
-d /. Then the problem must be on aria's side, which expects a file name for the
-ooption, which is then catenated with
-dinto the full path. Assuming that
-ddefaults to the cwd,
/var/cache/would appear twice in the result. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:43, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
