You need to learn how to use a search engine. I found the answer here in just a few minutes.

Dragora's package system in version 2.2 is called pkgsystem. It works well but does not support functions similar to `aptitude search' and downloading packages like `apt-get install'.

A lot of software is in the ISO images but there is a community repository here. When you find a package you want for you architecture, perhaps http://gungre.ch/dragora/repo/mprodr...1.0-i486-2.tlz, you download it. If you want you can also get the `.sha1sum' and/or `.sig' files to check the integrity of the package. When it is downloaded you can install it or upgrade it by running
Code:
pkg add mpv-0.11.0-i486-2.tlz
or
Code:
pkg upgrade mpv-0.11.0-i486-2.tlz
with root privileges.

pkgsystem has more commands and options that you can find here.

I'm working on a program that has some additional features:
  • Repositories
  • Ability to fetch packages from remote repositories
  • Search for available packages
  • Look for updates
  • Optional graphical interface (video)
  • And more

The program is called Jul and you can download it here. It is a work in progress but it is usable now (except the graphical interface).

If you want more help or have any other questions you can ask here, send an e-mail to the mailing list, or join our IRC channel. Good luck!

What error messages? Did you install packages for another architecture? Right now packages for both i486 and x86_64 are shown.
