|One layer deeper|
|Here, one actually selects the sources|
|Startmenu => Software Manager|

This is an index of the available modules. Everything below ./add can be upgraded.
Modules in the ../untestet directory must to be customised!
- One modules requires kernel 2.6 (actuator.cmd)
- Some modules are still in beta status
- Other have missing links
GNU stow helps to organise the files under /usr/local, by installing every software under his own directory tree under /usr/local/stow. And then, symbol links create the illusion, every software is installed in the same place.
Here are some of the most important commands
/usr/local/stow/stowES help --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow
- checkstow (cs)
/usr/local/stow/stowES cs --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow Checking packages in /usr/local/stow (78 matches): I ( 772.5) DFB++-0.9.20 I ( 1,385) DirectFB-0.9.20 I (19223.5) ImageMagick-6.0.2 I ( 10,085) MPlayer-1.0pre4 ....
- checkin (ci)
/usr/local/stow/stowES ci MPlayer-1.0pre4 --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow Calling "stow" to check in package MPlayer-1.0pre4 ...done. Calling ldconfig
- ceckout (co)
/usr/local/stow/stowES co MPlayer-1.0pre4 --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow Calling "stow -D" to check out package MPlayer-1.0pre4 ...done. Calling ldconfig.
- remove (rm)
/usr/local/stow/stowES rm MPlayer-1.0pre4 --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow Calling "stow -D" to check out package MPlayer-1.0pre4 ...done. Calling "rm -rf" to remove package MPlayer-1.0pre4 ...done. Calling ldconfig.
/usr/local/stow/stowES exchange MPlayer-1.0pre4 MPlayer-1.0pre5 --prog stow=/usr/local/stow/stow Calling "stow -D" to check out package MPlayer-1.0pre4 ...done. Calling "stow" to check in package MPlayer-1.0pre5 ...done. Calling ldconfig.
