Is there a way to do this from the command-line, additionally being able to specify the destination partition?

I tried to create an empty partition, and install the package onto that, so I could just zip the results, but PackageInstaller won't install to an empty partition.

I've gotten as far as identifying the destination partition drop down list via hey but I don't know how to make it list its elements or select one.

This question is now deprecated by .hpkg files, which are pretty straightforward to install from the command-line by copying into ~/config/packages. – Kev Jan 4 '14 at 1:53

Unfortunately, there are only three apps which can read BeOS .pkg files:

PackageBuilder, SoftwareValet and PackageInstaller. AFAIK neither supports command-line interface.

Hmm...good to know. Do any of them support hey? If not is there some way to do it anyway? – Kev Apr 7 '13 at 21:34
