Package manager for Chrome OS
Does not support ARM chipsets yet
Chromebooks with Chrome OS run a linux kernel - the only missing piece to use them as full-featured linux distro was gcc and make with their dependencies. Well, the piece isn't missing anymore. Say hello to chromebrew!
You will need a Chromebook with developer mode enabled.
On the ChromiumOS Wiki select your device and follow the instructions listed there.
Please be aware of the fact that developer mode is insecure if not properly configured.
Open the terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and type
If this command returns
Unknown command: 'wget' please have a second look at the prerequisites and make sure your Chromebook is in developer mode.
Then download and run the installation script
wget -q -O - https://raw.github.com/skycocker/chromebrew/master/install.sh | bash
crew <command> <package> <keep[temporary files]>
Where available commands are:
- search [looks for a package]
- download [downloads a package to
/usr/local/tmp/crewby default), but doesn't install it]
- install [installs a package along with its dependencies. You'll be prompted for confirmation]
- remove [removes a package. Must be ran as root]
Available packages are listed in the packages directory.
Chromebrew will wipe its
/usr/local/tmp/crew by default) after installation unless you pass "keep" as the last parameter when running "crew install".
crew install <package> keep
