Bootstrap pkgsrc under 'bash on Windows'
Much bruha was made about
Windows running Linux userland recently.
Leaving out the fact that emulating other operating systems
is something that NetBSD does for ages, there is one
real challenge that every Linux user faces when he has set up
his operating system: getting software installed easily.
And of course there is only one truely portable answer to
that question: use pkgsrc, of course!
The process is pretty much straight forward,
and Ryo ONODERA has verified the prerequired
Windows versions and Linux packages, and has sent
instructions on how to bootstrap pkgsrc on Windows 10.
Now who's the first one to post a screenshot with
output of pkgsrc/misc/cowsay running "cowsay hello pkgsrc"? :-)
