I know that I can define wanted package version in
pacman like shown in its manual
pacman -S "bash>=3.2". But how do I know what versions are available?
I also know that
pacman is creating copy of mirrors upon syncing in .db files in
/var/lib/pacman/sync/, but those files are not human-readable.
And what if I want to install some version
virtualbox for example, that I hope is in mirrors somewhere, that wouldn't require newer version of
linux (set as
pacman.conf) than I have installed (because of
nvidia drivers)? How do I know what version that is and if it is available?
