10.3: Install the GNU Midnight Commander from source
Authored by: zedwards on Jan 23, '04 12:43:41PM

This program helped make unix much easier to learn. Though it may have been a crutch, it really save me when plunged into no window gui (i.e. tweeking xf86config in linux)! Just for novelty sake, I tried installing it with fink a while back and that didn't work too well, as mentioned. It is unfortunate that now, it is much faster for me to use the cli than mc. But this just shows how far Mac os x is with being able to install/compile good ol unix programs. None of these compiles complained at all! Oh, fyi, the menu "numbers" are accessed by typing the option key and then the number. For example option + 9 accesses the pulldown menu.
