Using Pkgsrc to Install Software in Tiny Core
« on: November 01, 2023, 03:52:19 AM »
I've added a guide to setting up Pkgsrc in Tiny Core on my website. In theory this allows automatic compiling and installation of tens of thousands of programs packaged for the Pkgsrc package system from NetBSD.

I actually concluded that it creates as many problems as it solves in general. But it might be useful for quickly installing software that has lots of unsatisfied dependencies on Tiny Core, if you're lucky and everything just works. Personally I haven't used it much since I wrote the guide a few months back.

The page is part of a new Tiny Core section on my website, which might grow over time.
