I am currently fine tunning and installing lots of services on my Arch
box. In that way, I often refers to Arch WIKI.
On the *pacman WIKI*, there is a useful Warning:
**When installing packages, do *not* refresh the package list without
system (i.e. |pacman -Sy /package_name/|); this can lead to dependency
But on most WIKI, when installing a new package is needed, I always find
*$pacman -S packagenam*
As by definition WIKI will often adress to newbies, my thought was to
replace whenever I find the above command by this following one:
*$pacman -Sy packagenam*
In that way, newbies will very quickly take the good and sain habit of
running the *-y *option when installing a new package on their box.
Any idea if it could be worthwile for the comuunity?
