To install a package: sudo pacman -S packagename
To remove a single package, leaving all of its dependencies installed:
# pacman -R package_name
To remove a package's dependencies which are not required by any other installed package:
# pacman -Rs package_name
There should be a clear warning about regular dist upgrades,
Having explained that:
Doing an upgrade but excluding a package that causes trouble
sudo pacman -Syu --ignore libgl
In this case the libgl packages has a conflict with nvidia-utils
and shouldn't be installed or updated to avoid further conflicts.
sudo pacman -Ss dvd lists all programs connected to dvd.
Install a 'local' package that is not from a repository:
# pacman -U /path/to/package/package_name-version.pkg.tar.gz
