Hello everyone. I recently "migrated" my 8 year old computer from Windows 98 to NetBSD 3.1. The installation went fine and the machine is able to connect to the internet through a local router :) . However, I still have a couple of questions to ask:
1. When you run a command and pipe the output into "less" i.e.
ls /usr/bin | less
the only way I can find to stop the less process when I'm finished with it is to press CTRL + Z (CTRL + C and CTRL + D do not work). So, I end up using kill every so often to terminate the stopped less processes (so I don't get a big chunk of them building up). Is there a way to terminate "less" without having to stop it first like this?
2. I have been trying to install a set of applications to let me carry on my web development work on the system. I was told on one of the NetBSD chat rooms that pkg_add will automatically retrieve dependencies from the netbsd.org servers when you run it on a package file that has them. I tried to install the Linux version of Opera 9.1 like this, but pkg_add said it had failed to find some Linux libraries it needed. Have I been inadvertently mislead about this issue, or has pkg_add just gone wrong on this occasion?
It isn't too critical, as I can use wget to download the required other packages once I've found them in the packages collection.
