No no, all you need to do is grab the .tar.gz which includes the PGGBULD and required files, extract it to for example /var/abs/local/ and cd to that dir, then type makepkg. All deps etc will be taken care of automatically. After compilation you've got a package, install it with pacman -A package.tar.gz or pacman -U. BTW, I recommend you to check out yaourt, a great CLI frontend for pacman (it searches the AUR etc, great tool!)

I think "Debian GNU/Linux Sid" is "Pure debian sid at its best". ;-)

Using Fedora 7 here, soon to be Fedora 8. I play with other distros on occasion. I always keep a copy of Knoppix handy as a rescue disc. Kicked the tires on Slackware when I was a newbie, but haven't gotten around to playing with it again. Looked at Debian recently. Would like to try Gentoo sometime, and LFS. Actually easier for me to try distros now with VirtualBox, just need to find the time.

I just re-installed Ubuntu 7.10 with all updates. Very high level of polish in this distro. Now I just need to see if the same instabilities crop up that turned me off the first time.

noob? Or nerd?

So far I'm hyper-impressed with this Ubuntu 7.10

It's perfect for my level of expertise (low) easy to learn on, but it seems all the tools are there to learn anything I need to. Still very stable.

I´ll surely be a geek, love gentoo linux, compiling everything for my machine, I know it is not more faster than other precompiled distros and it takes a lot of time but is a nice distro to learn everything about linux, config files, compilation issues (can be really frustrating sometimes) and reading manuals
