• An interesting package "powerpill"


    Hey guys!
    This time i’d like to ask if some of you is using the package powerpill which claims to speed up installing packages by downloading multiple files/dependencies at the same time (instead of one by one like pacman)

    OBS: yesterday i tried to install from Antergos repositories, but it seems something was missing and didn’t work (like python3-memoizedb), but i just installed bauerbill from AUR and from the same developer which seem to have installed missing dependencies.

    Then all you’d have to do is to replace pacman with powerpill in command, like sudo powerpill -S libreoffice. It really seems to be faster…

    Any opinions?

    powerpill is from Antergos Repo and needs python3-memoizedb from AUR… as dependency, should be updated

  • So what’s the consensus? Is powerpill faster? It would be great to have something that can stand up to pacman with some new improvements on the side…

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    wow you’re so fast joe!
    as i said in my previous post even installing powerpill and python3-memoizedb keeps not working for some reason, the way i found is to install bauerbill hehehe

    @Keegan i think it really speeds up a lot, i’m seriously thinking about adding it to my iso, and if Antergos devs fix powerpill or add bauerbill to official repo is gonna be great!

    It sounds like it might be a good thing to add to mine as well:grinning:.

    Thank you! I certainly learned something here!

    i tried about an hour ago installing just powerpill and didn’t work, then i had to add python3-memoizedb. Do you think my mirror is not updated?

    Maybe karasu could pack bauerbill to repo?

  • @karasu ok, i removed both powerpill and py-blabla, restarted and downloaded from you link:
    when trying to launch the same error:

  • Hi,

    @joekamprad @fernandomaroto

    Well, I must apologize. python-xcpf depends on python-memoizedb as you are insisting and I was stubborn enough to not listen to you guys.

    I must update python-xcpf and create python-memoizedb… give me some time.

    Again, my apologies.

  • Hi again,

    OK, I fixed those packages (I hope).

    Now give some time so mirrors can update (give them 24h, please).

    You’ll know it is updated when python-xcpf shows with version 2017.8-1 (old one is 2017.5-1)

    You can check with pacman -Ss python-xcpf

    Cheers!

  • @karasu
    friend, don’t need to apologize!! i thought you’re trying different builds hehehehe
    tomorrow then i’ll try again (right now i was trying to use powerpill instead of pacstrap, so far only errors hehehe, but the download of the entire system is pretty fast)

    I would echo this statement! You obviously had an idea, and I don’t think it’s really wrong to pursue it:grinning:. Besides, now you have varified the results and findings of others, rather than just blindly agreeing.
