Artix-runit : Confused about pacage managment...

Hi there...

So I installed Artix-runit and been having a blast. I'm just a little confused about package management... the wiki has some information... (https://wiki.artixlinux.org/Main/Repositories) but not a lot of info.

  • Is it possible to search JUST the Atrix Repos
  • The wiki says the applications names are "slightly different".. is there a naming convention for that? So I can find the correct packages easily
  • Is there a naming system to automatically install runin "run" scripts for apps.. .like pacman -S applicationname-sv or something liek that?[/

    Basically I am unsure about how to install packages and from the AUR as runit makes things work differently. For most thing I would be cool with the default apps, but I will need some specialty apps for my work that I usually get form the AUR.

for runit, it be applicationname-runit
openrc applicationname-openrc
etc

I dont know of an diff naming except for application-$init where $init is which init you are on.

For most part AUR on any init isn't different; may have to edit to remove systemd. If there is no init-pkg for application may have to write your own script

dose packagename-runti install the entire package, or just thge runit sv stuff?

like pacman -S NetworkManager-runit or pacman -S NetworkManager NetworkManager-sv ?

Also do you have your own Artix AUR wrapper? Or am I good just using yay?

It should install just the init script.

pacman -S networkmanager networkmanager-runit

You are good with yay or any AUR wrapper.
The only function which might not work is to download PKGBUILDs for Artix packages.
Man is as good as his tools.

That page is talking about repositories not packages. Pacman doesn't have a builtin way to search on one specific repo (not really a reason to do this honestly), but if you want you could try some clever tricks by piping pacman -Ss to grep.
