I would like to know which packages are included in the default raspberry pi 2 image from archlinuxarm.org. Can anybody help me?

  • Why do you need to know this? Can't you just install any other packages you need using apt-get? Here are ALL the packages you can use: archlinux.org/packages/… – Kachamenus Oct 10 '15 at 17:14
  • I think you meant pacman? Yes, but I would like to know which packages do I need if I "reset" my system. Also I want to check out if all of these packages are really essentials because for example "raspberrypi-firmware-examples" sounds like not so important. – fhmgufs Oct 10 '15 at 17:20
  • raspberrypi-firmware-examples sounds like a system process for updating firmware. You might not want to delete it, just in case. But if you do reset your system, it should install default packages automatically. – Kachamenus Oct 10 '15 at 18:01
  • How do you mean "It schould install automatically"? – fhmgufs Oct 10 '15 at 18:08
  • meaning it comes with the OS. – Kachamenus Oct 10 '15 at 18:20

After you have installed a fresh system, just run:

pacman -Q > ~/default-packages.txt

I happen to have grabbed a snapshot from an install I did on Oct 24, 2015, so here is the full list of 129 packages that were the default on a Raspberry Pi2 as of that date:
