Quick Start

For Rudix 2013 and previous versions, please proceed with the following bootstrap, otherwise you will never upgrade your package manager to the version 2014!

Bootstrapping Rudix with help of command line is easy, just open the Terminal.app and type:

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rudix-mac/rpm/2015.4/rudix.py
sudo python rudix.py install rudix

or compressed in one-line:

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rudix-mac/rpm/2015.4/rudix.py | sudo python - install rudix
  • You will be probably asked for administrator password.
  • Consider the security risk of using this installation approach.

Now you are ready to use Rudix packages, type the command rudix search to get a list of packages for installation. For example, use sudo rudix install wget to install wget (GNU Wget). Learn more »
