publicfile-installer(1) get, build and install publicfile


get-publicfile [go]
build-publicfile [go]


get-publicfile downloads and verifies publicfile sources.

build-publicfile builds the publicfile package from its sources, and optionally installs it.

The scripts get-publicfile and build-publicfile are pretty verbose. Both scripts are interactive (but see below).


When get-publicfile or build-publicfile are passed the argument go, they run in non-interactive mode. This is useful when calling these scripts from within a package installer.


The scripts install files, and search for files in $HOME/.publicfile-installer/ and /usr/src/publicfile-installer/. The scripts are configured using /etc/publicfile-installer.conf and $HOME/.publicfile-installer.conf.
