I am still having problem in having my NetBSD works. Please if you have any simple tutorial that I can read please kindly send it to me.
All I am trying to do is to have i386 on my pentium III machine. I also want to have X windows on it. I have no problem with partitioning and using my DHCP procedure.
The major problem that I am facing is how to continue the packages for the X windows. I keep on getting error whenever I intend to buid a package.
I have installed pkgsrc into my machine.
Do I still need libraries and gcc compiler or alike ??
Please let me know.
You probably have NetBSD 3.0.1 and try to use packages built for NetBSD 3.0 (pkgsrc-2006Q2 branch). Solution: if You have NetBSD 3.0.1, use only sources from pkgsrc (not packages for NetBSD 3.0 release). You may also install older NetBSD 3.0 and use packages for it, however because of security reasons, it is not recommended. Or You can also may wait for NetBSD 3.1 and precompiled packages for it…
Try to install new NetBSD 3.1 and during installation choose ALL distribution sets (You will get all necessary tools and X-Window, however HDD consumption will not be very big). Then checkout pkgsrc 2006Q3 or pkgsrc-current. Then try to install Fluxbox/KDE/GNOME etc.
“In the NetBSD such tool is named package collection or pkgsrc.”
In NetBSD pkgsrc is called Packages Collection (in short or The NetBSD Packages Collection in full).
Thanks Przemysław. fixed.
