    Shell Universal package manager for FreeBSD, Linux, and macOS

    I've made a shell application that works as a wrapper for all the most common package managers. It supports FreeBSD, macOS, Debian, Arch Linux, OpenSUSE, Fedora, and eventually more. It gives users on all systems one common interface to search, install, delete, and update their packages. I try...

    Please add better version management in the pkg install.

    There has to be a minimal_tested_target_level or something to have sepperate versions of the package uploaded for different freebsd releases, keeping it compatible. I prefer FreeBSD 11.4 over newer because of SCO unix SVR compatibility, but a lot of BSD packages, I can't install. This is a main...

    Multiple Versions of Ports?

    My current issue revolves around apache24 and gitea and a few other ports requiring postgresql12-client as a connector, which blocks the installation of postgresql14-client needed by postgresql14-server to play around with some of the newer features in my home lab, and I'd be curious about a...

    I'm running FreeBSD-12.2-RELEASE on VirtualBox (RAM - 5000 MiB , Processor - 1, SSD - 18 GiB) hosted by Debian Buster. Almost all of the available binary packages in FreeBSD satisfy my need.

    Cleanup and switch fromports to packages

    I have a server running 11.3-p7 that has been upgraded over time since about 2009. When I originally built it, I chose not to use packages and I have been regretting that decision for years due to how much time it takes to handle updates. As I did not initially intend for it to be a server, I...

    mixing binary packages and compiled ports - keeping it up to date

    Setting: FreeBSD 11.0 RELEASE I have binary packages installed using pkg. Works great and fine in itself. I have installed from source some ports as the options used in the binary version was not what I needed. Works great and fine in itself. Mixing both as such works as advertised, but I'm...

    pkg update

    I usually compile the pkg program from ports, using saved source. Hence, no binary pkg bootstrapping installation is ever needed when I use (personally) archived packages. Usually, when I decide to use the "pkg install" command to retrieve a package not yet in my personal archives, the "pkg...
