This presentation is mostly intended towards pkgsrc users especially on non-NetBSD-platforms. Presentation includes problems in installing software on Unix "the traditional way", especially given modern interaction between components. After discussing use-cases and possible solutions, pkgsrc is introduced as a way to solve the named problems in a portable, cross-platform way. An example installation of pkgsrc on Linux is shown with special attention for installation without system (root) privileges. Following that is a brief overview of using pkgsrc to install and manage packages as well as what packages are available.
