Part: IV Introduction to BSD on Tiger > Command-Line Software Installation and ...

Chapter 14. Command-Line Software Installation and Troubleshooting

IN THIS CHAPTER

This chapter introduces software installation at the command line. You're almost undoubtedly familiar with installing software in the graphical user interface: double-click the installer, answer a few questions, and away it goes. You might be surprised to find that installing at the command line isn't much more difficult: type a few relatively standard command-line incantations and away it goes. We'll focus specifically on command-line installs for command-line software because that is the variety that will be the least familiar. You should be aware, however, that some GUI software might require you to install it by using a command-line program such as tar. And, peculiarly, some command-line software is only distributed for Mac OS X as a packaged GUI installer.
