Pico on Mandrake?


What do I need to get the Pico editor on Mandrake 10? Is there an RMP? Where do I go to get the sourfe o compile it? I'm not having the best of luck.
I want ot use Pico, mostally for nastalgia - its what I used back from 1996 to 2000 in college.

Nano is a pico clone. You might want to check to see if you have rpms for that.

Pico comes as part of the Pine mail packages, as mirradric syas, nano is a clone of Pico and is available as a stand alone package.

I recommend using nano as suggested above. use rpmdrake to install.

Death to vim & emacs!

Pico is available via PLF pine rpms but as mentioned above nano is a clone of PICO and has some functions that PICO doesn't have.

Nano should be in the contribs section of Mandrake RPM repositories.

Don't have to bother with RPMs. Nano will compile on Mandrake 10 (or any other Linux distro) from the latest source without any problems.

Checkout

http://www.nano-editor.org/

Grab the source files. Expand - then 'cd' to within the Nano folder and then do the following in the terminal

./configure (Return)

make (Return)

su (Return) - then enter root password (Return)

make install (Return)

No worries
