Re: pkg_radd PKG_PATH

Hi Saifi,

I think you should checkout first pkgsrc before trying to use pkgsrc
WIP. Sorry for not mentioning this before. So I'd go with the
(If you have something important under /usr/pkgsrc, save it before)

# rm -fr /usr/pkgsrc
# cd /usr
# make pkgsrc-checkout
# make pkgsrc-wip-checkout

pkgin is just a frontend for pkgsrc binary packages management. More
information on how to use it here: http://imil.net/pkgin/
You can install it following the instructions I gave you before.

Once installed, before using it, you will need to set a path you a
binary repo for your DF version, in your case 2.2.1:

# setenv PKG_REPOS
You have to set this variable in your shells profile file if you want
it to be permanent.

Once done, just update:
# pkgin update

And you are ready to install

If you decide to use pkg_radd instead pkgin, it is fine also. You
don't have to speciy anything, just install:

# pkg_radd -v anypackage

And if you finally decide to use pkgsrc, because you want to build
everything by yourself, just:

# cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkgfind/
# bmake install clean
# rehash

And now you can find packages with pkgfind:

# pkgfind evince
print/evince: Document viewer for the GNOME Desktop
print/evince-nautilus: File properties plugin for evince files

In the case you still get failures when compiling, it will be likely
your pkgsrc installation is broken, and you'll have to start over with
bootstrap, but this is another thing. ;D

I also recommend that you read some more about pkgsrc

Hope this helps.
