Default pbi on linux
Will there be a some sort of pbi system for som Linux distro?
Is there a Linux distro using similar system as pbi?
How about creating one from some light system like for example slax?

I dont dislike BSD, btw.

Some one posted a script on how to make a PBI for Linux Distros I believe.

I can orient you to Klik, Autopackage, gxInstall, but they all suck. You've been warned. I tried them on Centos, and they either didn't ship with all dependencies, or there was a single executable binary self-contained file :?

I'm actually surprised that no one came up with a PBI thing for Linux done right. But that's not a problem, use the real thing, use PC-BSD, the pioneer in self-extractable packages on Unix done the right way :wink:

pbi unlike klik does not require internet connection, and files can be downloaded from windows.

my (i915duo gigabyte's MB) sound card does not work, for now, in pcbsd 1.2. I tried loading modules from instructions, but nothing.
