What's poppin lo-gang, today I destroyed my Arch package manager's database of "what shit do I have installed" without actually uninstalling anything so now my whole machine is frozen in time

not the worst possible thing to happen but uh, how do I. How do I rebuild it?

@migratory unfortunately I had freshly emptied paccache and paclog was not helpful; I wound up using -Syu --force on all the names I could remember (turns out base-devel, plasma-desktop, and git will pull most of what I needed) and calling it a day lol

Though in retrospect, running pkgfile on everything in /user, then | sort | uniq would probably have done it
