Where is ipkg, dpkg, apt-get or yum or yast?


I just tried out the embedded DSL on top of windows. Very impressive!

How do I install programs like gcc? dpkg, ipkg and apt-get do not work!
When I am done, how do I retrieve the memory allocated for the virtual 128M disk I created?

Thanks,
Siegfried

If you are adamant on dpkg/apt-get etc there is a dsl package called something like dsl-dpkg - installing this will give you apt-get capabilities. There is also a synaptic dsl package (though I am not a fan, as it gives me no progress indication and as my pc is s.l.o.w. i've no way of even guessing when the packages are done!)

HTH,

Mitch.
