Is the "gnome-packagekit is obsoleted" image caption erroneous?[edit]

It's still refered to in some Fedora docs: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/14/html/Software_Management_Guide/Las_interfases_GUI_de_gnome-packagekit.html --65.60.128.64 (talk) 18:33, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Pacman?![edit]

Pacman is not the backend for packages in Arch Linux. All bindings for PackageKit are linked to the Arch Linux Package Manager (alpm), of which Pacman is just a frontend.

Since version 3.0.0, pacman has been the front-end to libalpm(3), the “Arch Linux Package Management” library. This library allows alternative front-ends to be written (for instance, a GUI front-end).
