This is one the most useful references of them all. I could never remember apt-get options (which is one of the reasons I switched from Ubuntu to Arch), but I can remember pacman commands just fine. Rather than google how to do a package management task with apt-get, I look up equivalents of pacman commands on this page. --Bhobbit 15:58, 18 February 2010 (EST)

Thanks! I wrote it in the first place for the very same reason as you. I've always been annoyed at having to learn a different package manager for every distro I jump to, so I wanted a centralized location where I could just search by what I know and copy-paste the equivalent for whatever distro I happen to be on. I'm glad you have found it useful!

Show the changelog of a package: I think in debian/ubuntu you can either use "aptitude changelog" or "apt-listchanges" --Abstract11 15:57, 24 May 2010 (EDT)

You're always free to make additions. I don't have any debian/ubuntu machines to use to test but if aptitude changelog or apt-listchanges works, please add it to the wiki.

Is apt-get build-dep automatic?

I'm confused how does the pacman does it automatically.
