    Installing Joe 3.1 - On FreeBSD 4.7


    Hi I am a newbie, just wondering if people can tell me how to install Joe 3.1 on my FreeBSD 4.7 System?

    The Joe files are in a tar.gz format.

    I need the steps and as much detail as possible.

    Or I need a website, that explains how to install it simply.

    You don't need to install it manually with a tar.gz. Just use the ports collection:
    [9:51] frankel:~% whereis joe
    joe: /usr/ports/editors/joe
    [9:51] frankel:~% cd /usr/ports/editors/joe
    [9:52] frankel:joe% make install clean
    If you don't have a ports tree, install the package:
    [9:56] frankel:~% pkg_add -r joe
    Either way, you have to be root to install it though.

    For more info on installing software, take a look at the Handbook:
