2everyone: if you still think that yum/apt/zypper are much better than those
provided by pkgsrc, please compare them with pkgtools/nih and express
Julio Merino / @jmmv
These days I typically install a package for OpenBSD, build from
/usr/ports for FreeBSD, and from /usr/pkgsrc for NetBSD.
To update I have been using pkg_chk, since things have been alright
running like this:
# pkg_chk -fsu
I installed pkgtools/nih a couple of weeks ago. Ran some simple commands
just to get information and the result was very elegant. I hope to learn
lots more about nih and potentially begin using it to replace pkg_chk
Never mind yum unless I ever have to. It was bizarre the last time that I
tried it in 2003.
