swapping between changes and no changes cheatcode

Post#1 by aus9 » 16 Jan 2016, 06:51

Longer title a suggeston for those with slow internet who want to swap between changes cheatcode and boot up to a no changes cheatcode.....and not have too much extra installed.

change sda3 to where ever you keep or load stuff please

I create a new folder /mnt/sda3/1bak/cache
I then copy below files from /mnt/sda3/porteus/changes/var/cache/pacman/pkg to that new dir

put into a scrollable code box rather than a quote box

Before I attempt to do any gui updates I next do this as root

Code: Select all

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*
Before I attempt to do any gui updates part two, done as root

Code: Select all

rm -rf /usr/lib/libdcadec.so.0
pacman -S dcadec
Finally I can use the gui to see what remaining bits I have missed due to dependencies or the above list is out-of-date

There is nothing stopping you from using mc terminal manager and having the left pane is the changes dir and the right pane as your cache dir and comparing them from time to time.
Then when you see there is a new update sitting in changes versus your old cache you simple overwrite the package.....YMMV
