2DarwinPorts 1.0 Quick notes on installation and usage.
3--------------------------------------------------------------------------
4
5The DarwinPorts system is installed by running:
6
7        ./configure && make && sudo make install
8
9This will place a standard DarwinPorts installation in /opt/local.
10You should ensure that /opt/local/bin is in your PATH environment
11variable, otherwise your shell will not be able to find the executables
12that are installed by DarwinPorts.
13
14If you are using a bourne shell (Panther and Tiger by default uses
15bash) add the following line to your ~/.profile file. If the file
16does not exist create it.
17
18        export PATH=/opt/local/bin:$PATH
19
20If you are using a (t)csh shell (Jaguar) put the following line in
21your ~/.cshrc file. If the file does not exist, create it. Your
22changes will not take effect until you have opened a new shell.
23
24        set path=(/opt/local/bin $path)
25
26Finally, you must download the port description files, the Portfiles:
27
28        port sync
29
30If you want to update the Portfiles and the DarwinPorts infrastructure (base) run:
31
32        sudo port selfupdate
33
34QUICK START
35
36To search for a port and/or related, vi for example:
37
38        port search vi
39
40To install a port:
41
42        sudo port install <portname>
43
44Please read the manual page for port:
45
46        man port
47
48There are also manual pages for portfile, porthier and portstyle, aimed at Portfile writers.
