Package manager for Chrome OS

Overview

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!

Installation

Download and run the installation script

wget -q -O - https://raw.github.com/skycocker/chromebrew/master/install.sh | bash

Usage

sudo crew <command> <package> <keep[temporary files]>

Where available commands are:

  • search [looks for a package]
  • download [downloads a package to CREW_BREW_DIR (/usr/local/tmp/crew by default), but doesn't install it]
  • install [installs a package along with its dependencies. You'll be prompted for confirmation, must be ran as root]
  • remove [removes a package. Must be ran as root]

Available packages are listed in the packages directory.

Chromebrew will wipe its BREW_DIR (/usr/local/tmp/crew by default) after installation unless you pass "keep" as the last parameter when running "crew install".

crew install <package> keep
