Package manager for Chrome OS
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!
Download and run the installation script
wget -q -O - https://raw.github.com/skycocker/chromebrew/master/install.sh | bash
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
