Build Arch Packages
A quick and dirty guide to building Linux packages on Arch.
Get the build tools
pacman -S base-devel git
Acquire the files
Clone the git repo of the package you wish to build.
Git repos and images can be found on the AUR.
Build and install the package
DO NOT PERFORM THESE STEPS AS ROOT. Building packages as root could lead to unforseen consequences.
cd package_name makepkg -si
