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? Hundovir (talk) 12:38, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
