Concerning removing redundant packages: "pacman -Qe" lists packages explicitly installed, not packages without dependencies. (error is 2x in article)

Thusly, when removing said unwanted package, you want to remove all the unnecessary dependencies it had as well (if no other packages need them), so "pacman -Rn" should become "pacman -Rns". (1x in article) -- Gilneas, 2006 August 10.

Custom Kernel

Is this section really needed with the 2.6.30 kernel?--Arcanazar 14:12, 30 July 2009 (EDT)

No, a custom kernel is not necessary for a natting firewall. There is also no reason given for the this section except for adsl. I would personallly like for the section pertaining to adsl to be kept and the rest be pruned.--Prometheanfire 14:58, 30 July 2009 (EDT)

Move ?

I know that it redirects to this page, but wouldn't it be clearer to move this page to "Router" and just state that it is acomplished by using a NAT'ing firewall? I would be willing to put in the work. --Arcanazar 11:53, 30 July 2009 (EDT)
