PRT-GET OVERVIEW: (Johannes Winkelmann, firstname.lastname@example.org) Description: ------------ prt-get is a utility which is meant to be used with the pkgutils and ports from crux (http://crux.nu). It offers some simplification over pure pkgmk, but might hide some interesting details about the install process. Installing: ----------- Just install the crux port from - http://www.hta-bi.bfh.ch/~winkj/files/crux/prt-get.prt.gz prt-get has to know where to look for ports. You can specify those in /etc/prt-get.conf, one directory per line. Note that the order matters, when the same port is in multiple direcories (e.g. /usr/ports/contrib/mutt and /usr/ports/local/mutt), the one found _first_ will be used. Feel free to contact me in case of problems (email@example.com) more information ---------------- See the man pages for prt-get(8), prt-get.conf(5) and prt-cache for more information. There is also a user manual in the doc directory (as a tex file). This document should also be available as PDF from http://www.hta-bi.bfh.ch/~winkj/files/crux/manual.pdf "it must be user error" (thinkgeek) ----------------------------------- port directories may only contain ports, or else prt-get can fail (which means that nothing is installed, your system takes no harm). The reason for this is because the additional checking slows down the application too much
