Learning Experience

I will confess, I have never installed software on a Unix system before today. (Content management systems don’t count.) This is largely because I have never had root access, but never mind that.

I am hating every minute of this.

“So, how long is this going to take?”, I asked Matthew as I watched my terminal screen hang a few lines after typing “sudo port install ‘ImageMagick'”.

“Depends… what’s it hanging on?”

“It says, ‘Building XFree86 with target World’.”

“Um… you’re going to be doing that for a couple of hours.”

As Marcus would say, “Dagnabbit.”
