Not having the greatest time using octopkg. Keeps freezing on me. Could be my usb but if there is another pkg manager I can try before upgrading to a newer/faster usb that would be great. Thanks!
octopkg is just a front-end to pkg . Depending on the packages you install, there is a lot of small files to be written to your flash drive, which is very slow compared to a HDD/SSDs, but choosing a good USB flash drive can make a huge difference. Anyway, just to make sure it isn’t a bug in octopkg, you can use pkg directly.
look at freshports.net and search for pkg I know we have a few others.
