How to make pacman stupid/smarter?

is there a way to have pacman stop making pacnew / pacsafe files ? i just want it to update without introducing FOD , the wiki has no info about this..

According to me
These things can't be stopped
And if you finally achieve what you wanted then it can cause your system to crash...

Edit :
if you want to make it simple then try this command :

sudo -H DIFFPROG=meld pacdiff

And that's all i can say :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes - stop editing configuration files that are included in packages.

Otherwise, you need to get used to using pacdiff.

Well actually you probably could manage to do it using a wild card regex in a pacman hook.

However, doing that would be extremely foolhardy IMO. So, just like the people who ask how to make sudo password-less I'll say to you, do some research. As always, the Archwiki is the place to start your journey.

Pacman is the foundation of your entire Arch system. If you undermine the foundation you're surely looking for problems. Perhaps a static distro is what you're looking for, (not a rolling one).

i would like to see a option during instalation :
Do you want to be bothered with pacnew and pacsave files (y/N)

@ jonathon - i never edit config files i only update. and then pacman starts to make these junk files.

You know those aren't definitively "junk files", right? .pacnew files sometimes contain changes that you have to merge for things to continue to work.

You can stop .pacsave by passing -n to pacman when you remove packages.

That being said, if you really don't want them, just create a systemd timer that deletes them.

Or, that being said, it sounds like a rolling distro isn't for you. These files definitely aren't junk, and you delete them at your peril.

Perhaps you are better suited to one of the many preexisting static distros that don't require this type of system maintenance.

Ya'll are crazy.

Type 'pacman -S yay'

Now you have UNARGUABLY the best cli tool ever to exist in any universe ever.

For example. Want to Pacman -Syu update? just type yay.

Want to get a list of packages, and have them queries even if you made a typo, and tell you which repo they're coming from, which version, and you can literally install 1-1000 of them at once? Also it will automatically create check for any conflicts, dependencies, and also if you already have some of the MakeFiles (I'd recommend saying Y if yay asks you to remove any MakeFile dependencies after installation, as clutter = unhappy life). Yay will also, integrate with Pacu if you want to see line by line what the Build File looks like (p.s. you can edit it too, if for some reason you feel that smart). Yay will also, auto-download dependencies, auto-remove conflicting packages, and auto-create a fakeroot environment and SAFELY install packages, even going as far as to auto-fetch (with or without confirmation depending on your yay config) any PGP/GPG key that might be needed for a signature check.

YAY!

For example.

output of typing "yay nvid" (it will query your repos for that string, even though your lazy ass didnt type nvidia out all the way:
