    Cedega and Crossover Office from Portage


    I noticed that I can emerge Cedga and Crossover Office from portage. I thought these were programs that you needed to pay for. Do you get the full version by emerging or is it just a demo?

    To emerge them you will have to download the actual program, and put it in /usr/portage/distfiles. The ebuild is just to add it from portage, it isn't the actual program. Installing it with portage just makes it easier to install, uninstall, and keep track of updates.

    But to answer your questions, you have to have paid for them and downloaded them for portage to install them.
