I'd like to install GNOME for my freshly installed base system following
instructions provided on this page 'https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/
GNOME#Base'. As you can see it reads:
"Install the base GNOME desktop"
# pacman -S gnome
And then: "This is a meta-package; which is a group of packages. An
option will be given to install all or some of the packages in this
When I run the command above, the list of all files in group is displayed
and the only option given to me is to answer Y/N to install the entire
list of packages, that I would like to avoid.
I've read through man pacman carefully a couple of times and I've not
found any option allowing to filter out undesirable file/s while
installing a group. Tried to search arch wiki without any success.
Could anybody provide me with a hint here, please?
