Description

While performing upgrades on one of my Arch boxes, I found it rather annoying I couldn't exclude a single package (eagle) from the list while upgrading using yaourt, since I like using the --noconfirm option to automate the ugrades. Luckily pacman has the ability to ignore packages an groups during its upgrading process.

  • Edit the pacman config file:
    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
    
  • Look for the line beginning with "#IgnorePkg =". Uncomment it and add the name of the packages to ignore:
    IgnorePkg   = eagle
    
  • Now update the packages:
    PKGEXT=".pkg.tar" yaourt -Syua --noconfirm
