ulrichschmidt added information that pkgin_cd is currently broken
Line 68: Line 68:
 This command pre-selects the CD-ROM as package-repository. It is a wrapper for pkgin and therefore ​ supports the same commands. If you just installed into a VM and then rebooted after unmounting the CD, it will give you an error message saying you must edit a file in /etc/rc or some directory like that. You do not have to do this. Simply reboot by first typing shutdown, then change the boot sequence of your VM to boot from the disk first, but do leave the ISO file mounted or loaded in the VM CD or DVD drive. Then boot up the VM and it will boot from disk. The pkgin_cd command will then work fine and you can install the X11 and GCC and many other packages from the CD. The pkgin_cd command can be used as a replacement for the pkgin command in all the examples above and it will get the packages from the CD. This command pre-selects the CD-ROM as package-repository.

 +In recent releases [[https://​github.com/​Stichting-MINIX-Research-Foundation/​minix/​issues/​216|pkgin_cd is broken]] since the partition layout of the Minix distribution disc was changed and pkgin_cd was not adjusted to work with the new layout.
