    Hi Jay,

    Yes, ports in CRUX can be confusing, but only because it's deceptively simple.

    1. Choose your ports from the Crux ports page.
    2. place their respective rsync or httpup file in /etc/ports.
    3. Run "ports -u" to populate /usr/ports.
    4. Edit /etc/prt-get.conf to call on chosen ports.
    4. Run "prt-get depinst packagename" to install desired packages which also takes care of dependencies. (I'd install yapo first as it's a handy visual aid when installing. You can also install packages with yapo if you so choose. After installed, run "yapo" as su to open. Press "f" for filter and type in the name of desired package to search for it. For complete instructions, do "man yapo.")

    Yeah... I goofed because I took it to be a little harder that what it really is! Oh well... how else ya gonna learn? But, incidentally (don't know how), at one point last week I messed something up to the point where startx gave me 'no screen found' and for the life of me, all I remember doing is rebooting to get into Fedora for a session of Nethack! So I just figured since I was still on the learning curve I would re-install (yet again). Which is cool... cuz this time around it went way smoother and way faster! I now have all my ports installed, successfully ran ports -u and prt-get sysup. Starting to get my individual packages going now.

    Since the actual installation is good to go, I figured I would come back and finally mark this one as solved.
