still to do:
mencoder -> build from source
konverter -> I still ain’t used it but want it installed just in case
linux-flock -> from ports (rpm)
linux-realplayer -> from ports (rpm)
linux-mplayerplug-in -> install after flock
libdvdcss -> build from source
portupgrade -> needed for Neo Ports Manager development (it’s the backend)
emacs or xemacs -> from source, rarly use emacs but I like to have a fat and micro sized emacsen installed.
Ports/Packages that PC-BSD actually saves me time on are perl, python, ruby, gtk2, subversion, kdegames, xv, kdegraphics, kdepim, libdvdread, libdvdnav, cdrtools, mplayer, and X.Org 😉
I’ve been using Window Maker for a long time now, I think I’ll go back to KDE3 for awhile. I’ve always liked using KDE3, even though I love Window Maker hehe. I’ve thought about switching to a less ‘common’ window manager as well but lack the time to RTFM and bend it to my wishes, especially since the ones that interest me can be quite keyboard driven hehe. I can use just about any window manager but I’m partial to Window Maker, the Box family, KDE, and Gnome. The only window manager I’ve used that I don’t like, depending on what one considers ‘explorer.exe’ any way ^_^ is TWM, I used to use it over VNC to my test machine back in the PC-BSD 1.0RC2 days… I find it very much less then pretty. I don’t care much for FVWM1/2 and most of it’s variants either but would prefer them to TWM for using 24 * 7 * 365 ! Oh and I also have to reinstall TeX Live 2007 but that I have backed up to beat the bands hehe.
All that is left for tonight is to configure and build Vim before I hit the hay.
./configure –with-features=big –with-x –enable-gui=gtk2 –enable-xfontsel –enable-rubyinterp –enable-pythoninterp –enable-perlinterp –enable-cscope && gmake -j4 && gmake install
Technically all I could leave it as –with-features big and –enable-gui=gtk2 but I usually su[pply the other args to the configure script instictively.
Tomorrow I can finish installing the remaining apps since most of it is just waiting on me to install a ports tree. I also need to get the NFS/SMB shares sorted on Vectra & SAL1600, look up my ICQ# as it seems I lost both my KDM Theme and Pidgin settings by lack of forsite :-(. No matter, I actually like the more Gnome’ish PC-BSD KDM theme lol. I also remember the logins for my AIM/M$N/Y!M/XMPP so that one is not a big problem hehe.
And of course as always to playfully mold KDE to match my work flow, muhauahuaha !
