Arch Linux package lists for various environments.


I recommend using trizen or any other wrapper to manage both official and unofficial packages (AUR). To install the wrapper:

$ curl -LO
$ tar xvf trizen.tar.gz
$ cd trizen
# makepkg -sric

Then, for example, to install the base packages:

$ trizen -S --needed --noconfirm - < base.list

  • For older liveusb you might need to update the packages with # pacman -Syu.
