When doing a Enviorment Setup as shown in http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Environment_Setup I'm a bit confused when reading the wiki. In the bottom theres about how to avoid Directory Clutter, I really want to avoid this so I created a new directory in my home folder called "packages" and then wrote:
What should I do know, the text before is a little bit confusing. Should I first do:
Should I change that to: ~/packages/bin:$PATH? But I've allready done this before after creating the packages directory?
Then it says "If you use the .bash_profile" do this:
Then add to file:
And then in terminal write:
Whats with the two dots? I've not seen this before.
So, In what order should I do everything and how should I change the paths if I do the directory clutter things?
Thanks in advance!
