Upgrading to ultimate

:grinning

How do you install the ultimate edition once the OS is up and working.
I have tried sudo pacman -S ultimate without success.
Other versions are installed and I would like to try the ultimate version, however, due to its size I cannot burn it to a normal dvd.

Install on lite the >extra packages from the list

Thank you. I am an intermediate when it comes to linux. Not a programmer at all. I am slightly confused regarding how to install the ultimate version in its entirety. Is there a simple command?

The Ultimate edition simply has a larger selection of pre-installed packages, as identified by >extra in the above list. You can install all of them, some of them, or none of them and add applications only as you need them.

Thank you. I take it that you just type extra and then the program. Is that correct?

Thank you once again. This is by far the best in my opinion, of all of the operating systems I have tried. Works and looks good straight away. Congratulations.
