    Adding software in FreeBSD shell | fernape | (0)
    The easiest way is to add a binary package with: % pkg_add <package> Packages in FreeBSD are .tbz files with some special meta-files (or files with meta information) inside it. However you will use pkg_add in this fashion most likely: % pkg_add -r <package> This connects to the repository matching your release, downloads the package (and all its dependencies) and installs the package. Another example of how easy FreeBSD can be ;)
