Installing Package - Embedded Platform



  • I saw a file in www.pfsense.com/packages with the following contents

    Package installation process for pfSense

    Client downloads pkg_config.xml
    |
    |
    Client parses pkg_config.xml and generates a interface
    of installable packages |
    |
    |
    User selects a package to install
    |
    |
    pkg_mgr.php downloads package master configuration files
    |
    |
    pkg_mgr.php downloads master package and installs.  pkg_add -r
    takes care of downloading and installing all dependencies
    |
    |
    pkg_mgr.php downloads "extra" files that are required such
    as customized helper scripts, etc.
    |
    |
    pkg_mgr.php interates through the menu section installing
    needed menu items.  |
    |
    Package and supporting items are now installed.  The package
    will be listed in "Installed Packages"

    I saw the file pkg_config.xml there….. Downloaded it .... Then how to proceed ? Client Parse the file ... how ?

    Any kind of help is welcome.... Plz.
