I'm missing pico

Recommended Posts

Pine/Pico are not included with Debian, because their licensing scheme doesn''t fit with Debian''s. Feel free to get pine/pico separately, tho; the debian package "pine-tracker" will help you with this, IIRC.


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

I hate when you upgrade and are missing your key programs. I just put on madrake 9.1 and was missing Midnight Commander. If you don''t know what that is a urge you to find out. Screw that vi ermac crap. MC can do tons of stuff and you can do it even if you never used it before. I''m also out package manager wich left me with a WTF moment. Stuck with that stupid software install manager thing for RPMs wich gives you zero control and keeps trying to make me insert the install disk. What the hell is that about? I end up having to use the command line to get anything done because it keeps tring to install extra stuff or not leting me install at all because the RPM depends on the other RPM that depends on it. I HATE that piece of shit...Oh I mad now....
Never heard of Pico. Is it nice?

There is urpmi to help that RPM hell in mandrake.

urpmf mc (or was it mcc) finds rpm to you.
urpmi mc install it ( and all needed RPM''s)

also that stupid software install manager tries to install MC for you from that disk.
If you want to use some network place to install add that place.

man urpmi
or google urpmi

I just got MC of rpmfind.net it might be on the disk but oh well. As for looking for things on the disk it did it for almost every RPM I tried to install. I''m not sure what thats all about but I said screw it and hit the term instead. There I can tell it what I want to do. It was just easier with package manager. You had full control over everything. You could even view the file list and install locations of all the files in the RPM. Very easy to use. Had some trouble finding in non source form. Had little luck compiling programs. Always something that comes up. Finaly I reaferm my position that software install manager is crap. Much too automated and zero ability to overide what it automaticly decides is right = inflexible piece of crap.
