I proudly, have been maintaining and, or submitting a few ports for FreeBSD project since December 2006. The authorized volunteers however, take time to approve and, or commit new and, or updated ports; may be due to the workload they handle.
Hence, I have created a public repository for sharing these with all those of you, who either are interested to use or help me in testing these ports, even before these are committed to the real ports tree. Please feel free to download, test and, or report any bugs; a feedback of yours though not mandatory, shall highly be appreciated.
After downloading the requisite and, or suggested <whatever>.shar.gz file(s) for a port, to extract and, or install, all you need to do is, as root repeat the following for the *.shar.gz files:
# zcat <whatever>.shar.gz |sh
or for the <whatever>.patch.gz file(s):
# zcat <whatever>.patch.gz |patch -d/ -p1
Now, visit the main ports’ directory and perform:
# cd /usr/ports/<category>/<port> # make install clean
That’s all, and you have done it!
