PKG_RADD(1) DragonFly General Commands Manual PKG_RADD(1)
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
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
pkg_add(1), pkg_create(1), pkg_delete(1), pkg_info(1), pkg_search(1),
The pkg_radd utility first appeared in DragonFly 1.11.
