.: Package Installation on NetBSD :.
If you're new to NetBSD and is a regular Linux user you might feel a little confused when it comes to install additional packages after the system installation. I hope this very quick guide can help you.
Well, all you have to do is to point your PKG_PATH environment variable to the right server and you're set!
export PKG_PATH=http://mirror.lncc.br/netbsd/NetBSD-5.1/packages/`uname -m`/All/
Now you just have to type the installation command and wait for the package to be downloaded and installed. Some useful tips:
pkg_add -v package : installs a package
pkg_delete package : removes a package
pkg_info | grep package_name : shows information about a installed packaged
I hope you enjoyed it! Take care! ;-)
