Need some help getting certain apps for gentoox.

Post by jamesd » Sun Apr 30, 2006 10:39 am

Hey, new here.

Anyway, had gentoox on my xbox for a while, and yes, i've tried google. Anyway, is there any Bit Torrent Clients and MSN clients that will work with Gentoox?

If anyone could, please link me.

It would be a big help, since I want to make my gentoox machine more useable (i.e. having something on it useful apart from firefox :p)

Thanks, but i'm still having problems.

Whenever I click to open the tar.gz package or rpm package, it won't open. Whenever I do it in the file manager, it brings up a 'open with' box up the top. Is there something I need to download for gentoox so I can open these files?

Gah, this is what you get from using Windows and OSX all your life :P

Read up on gentoo and emerge - Gentoo uses emerge packages to install apps.

you dont install programs on linux the same as windows, you need to use emerge for installing applications or compile them via source (not prefered with gentoo)
