Talk:Script to install common packages
- Why not make a port with all these as dependencies?
Feel free to do that; I think that's what the instant-workstation port did, but I haven't taken the time to learn how to make ports and probably won't for a while yet.
yeah... instant-workstation does install alot of these. It's certainly not the exact same setup (vnc and openoffice aren't there, for example). I always thought that instant-workstation is the one port I could really understand a configure screen for... and it doesn't have one. --Joe 17:29, 13 March 2006 (EST)
last time i checked instant-workstation doesn't work anymore :( which is why I put that script here ...I got tired of having to remember to install stuff by hand....--Dave 21:39, 13 March 2006 (EST)
