I’m thinking of installing Endeavour.
I know you use the Arch repos and AUR, but I’m curious to see what exactly is in Endeavour’s own repos. Is there a list, or can you give me a link to your repo to see what’s in it?
I think I might have found the list of Endeavour-specific packages. Is this it?
More or less, it is
This is the current list of packages in EndeavourOS repo:
arc-x-icons-theme-2.1-3-any.pkg.tar.xz ckbcomp-1.193-1-any.pkg.tar.xz downgrade-6.2.1-2-any.pkg.tar.xz endeavouros-keyring-1-4-any.pkg.tar.xz endeavouros-mirrorlist-1-10-any.pkg.tar.xz eos-base-1.0-2-any.pkg.tar.xz eos-update-notifier-0.4-2.2-any.pkg.tar.xz grub2-theme-endeavouros-20190711-4-any.pkg.tar.xz grub-tools-1.0-3-any.pkg.tar.xz inxi-3.0.36-1-any.pkg.tar.xz kalu-4.3.0-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz mkinitcpio-openswap-0.1.0-3-any.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-installer-2.1-4-any.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-installer-db-2.1-2-any.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-installer-dkms-2.1-8-any.pkg.tar.xz paper-icon-theme-1.5.0-2-any.pkg.tar.xz reflector-auto-1.1.1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz welcome-1.10-1.3-any.pkg.tar.xz yay-9.3.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
The more interesting think is that there is not that much inside, as we do want to stay as close to arch as we can, we do not want to provide a unmaintainable big repository, where packages get outdated.
I was wondering about it because I’ve been burned with Manjaro, which held back so much and had so much in its own repositories. I wanted an install very very close to plain Arch, and y’all provided it!
None of EndeavourOS packages are overriding official Arch packages, so users receive them directly from Arch repos.
Which is a good thing. And the best thing to be sure installation are going to last a long time
Has this list been altered, since downgrade and kalu etc. are not installed atm.?
What is the current list?
Not much changed. Kalu is removed, and pahis (pacman history, a small CLI utility) is added. And of course, versions are newer, always up to date.
