repository for arch-phosh
#1
I have a pinephone with arch phosh installed. What are the absolutely necessary depository for future installations and/or updates? For example, I found that there were no packages installed of pine64 and phosh. By removing these depository, I could lighten pacman’s cache, yes or no?

No that is not how pacman works. The repositories are not cached locally, but packages that you install from those repositories will be. You can clean those cached files easily. https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/pacman#...kage_cache

EDIT: I am not sure if I understand your question correctly so let me add this: danctnix recently decommissioned some of the repositories and serves the packages from those out of their own danctnix repo, rather than having to maintain four different ones. So some of those repositories are indeed unnecessary.

This is what I have in my pacman.conf right now, with testing repository:

Code:
[danctnix-testing]
Server = https://p64.arikawa-hi.me/$repo/$arch/

[danctnix]
Server = https://p64.arikawa-hi.me/danctnix/aarch64/

[core]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[alarm]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[aur]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Today, I commented on the repositories pine64, sxmo, plasma, phosh and alarm in pacman.conf since no package of these repositories is used on arch-phosh, we’ll see... at least the synchronizations will be faster and the cache lighter. I know pacman, yay for several years and I regularly use paccache to lighten the cache. My question was just about keeping all repositories for the future.

To install new software and update the system using the package manager through tor, check here on Using Tor with Apt:

You could install tor and torsocks and use torsocks in front of each command.
Code:
torsocks pacman -Syu

for example, but there is no tor mirror, I guess.
