I had a few minutes to try and play around with pkgsrc. So I went to the pkgsrc page on Foundry27, community.qnx.com/sf/projects/pkgsrc.
I am COMPLETELY lost. I’ve bounced around the Foundry27 site. I’ve bounce around the NetBSD site. If the fate of the universe depended on me being able to say even one intelligent thing about pkgsrc we’re all goners.
My favorite line is “Download pkgsrc with QNX diffs.” There’s even a link, community.qnx.com/sf/scm/do/list … pkgsrc/scm Under “HEAD” there’s directory called “pkgsrc”. Great! Except the only thing in it are more directories and some ReadMes. There is a “pkg_tools”, sub-directory, which sounds promising. Inside pkg_tools there are lots of things that start with “pkg” but none of them are “pkgsrc”. So what am I supposed to download? Surely I’m not supposed to download each individual file with an individual click.
Isn’t there a tarball somewhere? Is there not a binary called “pkgsrc” that I run, like I do with rpm? (Okay, okay, “pkg_add”. I can handle that. Where is it?)
Why do I have to get this from the Foundry27 site? Is NetBSD not willing to fold the QNX changes back into the main line?
Can some one please explain pkgsrc on QNX to me? Or at least point me in the right direction?
