It says "By default export USE_FAKEROOT="y" is included in /etc/makepkg.conf, so unless you have switched it off it is already enabled." Newer Arch systems are using BUILDENV directive and user should set ! right before the fakeroot to disable it or delete ! before fakeroot to enable it.--[[User:Jazz1303|Jazz1303]] 13:15, 3 November 2009 (EST)

IMO this whole part should just be removed now that community have been seperated from aur.
+
But as a minimum it should be cleaned up, since there have been cases where it have confused users rather than help them:
+
 
+
Perhaps something like:<br>
+
...<br>
+
The [community] repo is enabled by default in <tt>pacman.conf</tt>. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines:
+
{{File|name=/etc/pacman.conf|content=
+
<nowiki>
+
...
+
[community]
+
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
+
...
+
</nowiki>
+
}}
+
...<br>
+
Any typos would have to be fixed of course :p <br>
+
Is community still disabled by default in abs.conf btw?

Installing Packages

The wiki suggests using

makepkg -s

and then

pacman -U foo.pkg.tar.xz

I recently, on another wiki page, came across the -i option for makepkg which seems to make the separate pacman command unnecessary. Is this actually the case? Or is there a reason not to use the makepkg -i option?

It's unnecessary, but -i is not necessary either, and the point is to actually educate people on how it works, they can find the faster ways later.

Thanks Kyrias, that makes sense. Hundovir (talk) 13:30, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
