pkg_radd -- installs packages


pkg_radd package ...


pkg_radd acts as a wrapper for pkg_add(1). It sets the PKG_PATH variable to the DragonFly default pkgsrc(7) binary package server or uses the global /etc/pkg_radd.conf config file to calculate PKG_PATH. In /etc/pkg_radd.conf, set BINPKG_BASE to your favorite binary packages mir- ror URL to allow pkg_radd to automatically retrieve the latest set of binary packages for your DragonFly release. If you want to use a spe- cific set of packages, set BINPKG_SITES instead. All options passed to pkg_radd are passed to pkg_add(1).


The following is an example of a typical usage of the pkg_radd command: # pkg_radd host If you don't know which version of your desired package to install you can use pkg_search(1) to find the correct version. # pkg_search fvwm2 # pkg_radd -v fvwm-2.4.20nb1 If you add the following line BINPKG_BASE=http://mirror-master.dragonflybsd.org/packages to /etc/pkg_radd.conf, pkg_radd fetches packages from the main DragonFly server. If possible, replace the entry with one of the mirrors as listed in http://www.dragonflybsd.org/mirrors/.


pkg_add(1), pkg_create(1), pkg_delete(1), pkg_info(1), pkg_search(1), pkgsrc(7)
