• \[Solved\] axel with pacman?


    was wondering if i can use axel with pacman to speed things up a bit, since i have a dialup connection
    is it even possible?

  • Hi,

    To achieve that, it is highly possible that you would need to rewrite most of pacman internals. Or at least the part where it grabs the files it needs.

    So I think that won’t be possible.

  • Yes it can be done, you can use several others like aria, wget…
