I need a package manager for GNU/Linux (preferably source based) to install packages in my home as unprivileged user on a Debian system (not sure if squeeze or wheezy).
What I tried:
- Compiling it myself: Gave up after installing twenty dependencies and encountering some problems that surpassed my GNU/Linux skills.
- Gentoo-Prefix: My first problem were two broken links in the bootstrap script, after fixing them, the bootstrap failed reproducably when attempting to install stage3.
- Home Arch Install (HAI): Didn't seem to work, maybe outdated.
Did anybody succeed installing gentoo prefix in the near past and knows how to do it or have an alternative to achieve what I want?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
I just tried unpacking debian packages via
dpkg-deb -x but this is worse than compiling it myself. When compiling it myself, I can at least link against other self compiled libraries, so debian packages aren't an option!
