    so uhm basically,
    “Yay – Yet another Yaourt” ?
    So this actually means, that there’s nothing wrong with Yaourt.

    I’ve been using yaourt just fine for like 8 years now !, while literally watching every other AUR helper die by the roadside.
    Yaourt is still good, and has stably outlasted them all, in Arch.

    This is why Linux can be so silly and confusing to most (Client) Users.
    But lol, whatever, “Yay” eh ?

    There is also a yay-bin package in the aur,so you don’t have to install the 400M go-compiler.

    How do you get colored screen like shown up there

  6. Gaidaros says:

    Or you can simple enable(uncomment) the `Color` parameter on /etc/pacman.conf.

    Lots of people who need this help are actually new Linux users or people who used to use another distro. You should tell them to install dependencies like base-devels and binutils unless they face problems.
