I understand yaourt is just a wrapper for pacman for access to other packages but how much functionality does it add?

I'm guessing there is a downside to yaourt if it doesn't come standard. What are the downsides? Security risks?

One more thing. I see that yaourt uses AUR but the Archwiki says AUR is deprecated. So what's the deal with that?

Lol.

Essentially, all yaourt does is give you access to the AUR without having to manually compile packages through ABS or by downloading PKGBUILD files.

It's still pacman, but it's pacman with AUR support.

I use powerpill for main repos, while using clyde for AUR. Yaourt is nice too, but I prefer clyde. You really should use powerpill though....MUCH faster because it consolidates mirrors.

Also clyde can be used to upgrade all of your AUR packages using:
Code:
sudo clyde -Syu --aur
I don't think yaourt has that support yet. Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.



There is also bauerbill, which is powerpill with aur support, however I don't see the point considering that often AUR packages are hosted on a single site, not multiple mirrors.

Interesting. They must have updated it since I used yaourt last (about a year ago tongue.gif)

So are there any benefits of yaourt vs clyde?

Except you don't run it with "sudo" on yaourt, as you're meant to compile with an unprivileged user.

It will call sudo itself and ask for your password when it's install time.

Another thing yaourt can do is yaourt -Sb package

That will compile a package in the official arch repository with ABS.

I just tried clyde now for the first time really. According to the wiki it's actually meant to replace yaourt and powerpill; well, yaourt always reaches my maximum bandwidth anyway and looks cute..r I guess?

Syu on AUR packages? *shudder*

That would take hours on my laptop, with all of the configuring and dependency resolution, and in some cases compiling from source (Chrome takes like 30 minutes to build)

Packer is better than Yaourt last I knew. FAR better written and maintained resulting in far faster queries.
