Thoughts about importing a package manager

Thanks for the response. Seems I get the situation now.


Quoting you (inline, the oldschool way):

This level of software installation system (compiling whith 'make' from source) is liked for me personally.


Nice. Another quote:

I don't have a strong opinion about an advanced, more user-friendly, but no longer user-controlled software installation system.


Understood. BTW, `pkgsrc` does essentially the same. It is a tree of Makefiles + URLs pointing to the sources + optionally patches specific for some platforms.


So whoever wants `sqlite3` with `nano` like here:
https://peropesis.org/forum/index.php?id=5

... or `vim` with `elinks` like here:
https://peropesis.org/forum/index.php?id=1

... one can `cd` straight into the appropriate dir, eg.:


$ cd pkgsrc/editors/nano


... and run `make install` or `bmake install` (the BSD make).


The dirs for the aforementioned software bundles can be identified using `find` or online, via pkgsrc.se. eg.:

https://pkgsrc.se/editors/nano
https://pkgsrc.se/databases/sqlite3
https://pkgsrc.se/editors/vim
https://pkgsrc.se/www/links


So I guess I will probably try to bootstrap this source-based system on Peropesis once I get it running in a VM:)
