Can I use a system-provided version of the Pacman package manager? #

No, and it is unlikely to ever be possible. wf-pacman is customized to (a) treat /opt/wonderful as the root directory and (b) allow running without root.

  • This approach allows reducing concerns of safety and security over a package manager that can write to the entire system space.
  • The Wonderful toolchain wishes to minimize system configuration divergence while still supporting diverse configurations. Standardizing components of the toolchain helps maintain that goal.
