if you like the "linux" way better, you may wish to try out the
gnu-darwin collection at http://gnu-darwin.sourceforge.net/
, it works more
like linux in the directory structures and everything. To tell the truth, I
thought fink was kinda funky that way, I liked the linux/unix directory
structure better (most all stuff in /usr/local/bin /usr/local/lib etc etc).
Also you may need to get/install the developer tools, as I don't recall
if gcc and assorted stuff is installed by default. It's a free download
from the apple developers area.
Note that both of these are fairly sizable downloads, gnu-darwin is
650mb, and the developers tools was 200mb???(I forget, but large). If you
got a lot of bandwith, it will just take hours to get, instead of days.
Both are available on silver platters with $$.
Last if you stay with fink, just make sure to add the directories
/sw/fink/bin to your directory path.

Also, another piece of information, there are things like Darwin and Fink to

Sorry, I may be dumb but I never get used to Mac language. I went to Fink's
web-site, tried to download the installation package: it downloaded a lot of
stuff except fink-0.x.x-full.tar.gz like announced.
I have well a /sw/fink directory with a lot of stuff inside but which one to
I still prefer the good old Linux-way (easier for me even if sometimes
I finally managed to install X11R6 with a "click-click" package and I try to
install a correct window-manager.
I downloaded WindowMaker-0.98 tarballs.
Compiling libPropList ... no problem
compiling WindowMaker ... : "no command found" when typing "make"
Pleasure ... pleasure
Did anybody succeed in installing a working X11R6 in MacOsX?
