We have begun distributing applications with Apple's package (.pkg) installer.

  1. Decompress/untar the archive.
  2. Double-Click the AppName.pkg file to install.

Some of our packages have custom installers that we created. To install type these commands:

  1. tar -zxf ProgramName.tar.gz
  2. cd ProgramName
  3. ./install.sh

Thats its!

A few of our applications use their original installers. This includes; lynx and ssh.

You must have Developer Tools to install these.

  1. tar -zxf ProgramName.tar.gz
  2. cd ProgramName
  3. make install
