Happy Saturday everyone! just wondering, I noticed for a couple of months “haskell” packages filling my updates, why is that? Online I read haskell is a coding language but it is also an intel chip. I see something like this:
haskell-texmath-0.12.2-6 haskell-xml-conduit-126.96.36.199-11 ipython-7.22.0-1
kglobalaccel-5.80.0-2 pandoc-2.12-9 xterm-367-1
Is that normal or have I been hacked?
pactree -r haskell-aeson
or put the name of a different haskell package in there.
Btw, I see you installed pandoc, which pulls in lot of haskell packages.
pactree pandoc to see which all packages are required by pandoc.
That’s it! Thanks for this, I didn’t know the
pactree command, this is really neat
I don’t even recall why I installed pandoc, I think it could be related to Latex and markdown languages, I work on a gitbook via R studio, or work a lot on Tex studio.
We learn something new everyday
pactree -r pandoc and it will tell if any package depends on pandoc. Maybe it was installed as a dependency for something else.
That was probably one of the shortest thread solved, within 1 min
I know it’s solved, but for anyone looking for it in the future, mabe uninstall pandoc, and install pandoc-bin from AUR. It douesn’t have 1000 haskell dependencies
pandoc is also an optional install for
Thanks for the tip. For my system, I prefer installing from arch repo when available, avoids any breakage and dependence on random person to package and maintain. Not saying that AUR is not good, I use it too but only if necessary.
Gosh this post was last Spring
