$NetBSD: README,v 1.4 2004/06/23 19:06:40 wiz Exp $
To try to get pkgsrc working on your system, please try the following
as root:
# ./bootstrap [ --prefix=${PREFIX} ] [ --pkgdbdir=${PKG_DBDIR} ] \
[ --sysconfdir=${PKG_SYSCONFBASE} ] [ --workdir=working directory] \
[ --ignore-case-check ] [ --ignore-user-check ] [ --help ]
The defaults for the arguments are as follows:
--prefix /usr/pkg
--pkgdbdir /var/db/pkg
--sysconfdir /usr/pkg/etc
--workdir work
It is perfectly acceptable to place ${PKG_DBDIR} under ${PREFIX}.
The working directory will be created if it doesn't exist and has to be
writable by the user executing ./bootstrap.
Make sure that you have a working C compiler and make(1) binary in
your path.
See for
more information about bootstrapping and using pkgsrc.
We'd be very interested in hearing of any successes or failures on
"unknown" (to us) systems.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
