    How do I install icewm on crux 2.7.1


    Nothing I'm finding online makes sense or is at least very, very out of date.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Have you already setup your /etc/prt-get.conf?
    If so, it's as easy as:
    Code:
    prt-get depinst icewm
    If you haven't found it yet, take a look at the ports page.
    IceWM can be found in either sepen or romster.

    That's the stuff I'm reading that doesn't make sense

    There is nothing in prt-get.conf that matches the info there and I get the httpup file and it matches nothing in ports/

    When you download the httpup file, save it to /etc/ports.
    Then, add something like this to your /etc/prt-get.conf:
    Code:
    prtdir /usr/ports/sepen
    Run:
    Code:
    ports -u                  ##updates package list
    prt-get sysup             ##updates installed software
    prt-get depinst icewm

    Here's a list of my /etc/prt-get.conf from 2.5.
    Some of the ports have, sadly, gone away. But it should help for some of it
    Code:
    ### prt-get conf
    ###
    
    # note: the order matters: the package found first is used
    prtdir /usr/ports/core
    prtdir /usr/ports/opt
    prtdir /usr/ports/xorg
    prtdir /usr/ports/contrib
    prtdir /usr/ports/rehabdoll
    prtdir /usr/ports/ecarux
    prtdir /usr/ports/yhafri
    prtdir /usr/ports/han
    prtdir /usr/ports/hnc
    prtdir /usr/ports/sepen
    
    # the following line enables the user maintained contrib collection
    #prtdir /usr/ports/contrib

    Thanks jayd, I'll probably look at that on Boxing day. Unless there is the traditional Christmas row, then I'll look tomorrow

    Have a good Christmas man

    So a good brawl is 'traditional' on Boxing Day?
    Kinda makes sense, if ya think about it!

    Like I said, though... my config file is sadly out of date. But as a guideline, it should do the trick.
    Not sure if you noticed something on the ports page, but clicking each maintainers name opens up a list of software that is included in that port.

    And you have a Merry Christmas, as well!

    Elija, I just use the latest tarball from Sourceforge. I think it only requires Imlib which can be obtained through ports. See here for more. This might be of help too once you get it installed.

    Well in our case, the fight is usually mid afternoon on Christmas day and is about something like what Sharon said about Lucy at David and Leslie's wedding. Alcohol, carbs and close confinement

    Thanks Dan, I'll check that out as well. Not tonight - I've been drinking and I've learned the hard way about configuration and alcohol!
