Title: Can Install Other Distro Package ?
Post by: McKim on Thu Jun 27 01:13:13 2019
Can we use/ install other distro package like debian / ubuntu / arch linux package ?

Are .txz binary from archlinux/slackware , binary source from arch linux, compatible to

Or need script to convert them, to nutyx package version ?

If have script, thats will be cool, lot of package not need rewriten to nutyx version.

Example :I looking hardinfo (found at ubuntu,pclinuxos,debian) , tool to check system hardware, not found.

Are nutyx have plan use sypnatic manager(make it compatible to nutyx package) in future ? More easy install

Are nutyx in future will try use some like flatpak ?

So i need create package if now i not found ?

after a small rebuild process , yes. You will find a lot of example in the nos collection (http://nutyx.org/en/?type=col&branch=rolling&arch=x86_64&searchpkg=nos)

NuTyX use it's own graphical package manager based on fltk lib, much lighter
