Here is how to Manually install a binary CNS package using fink that I compiled.



Each of these examples follows the same simple steps:

1. Download, using curl -O or wget, the required debian packages from my private fink web server for powerpc compiled packages, or I have a non-live (irregularly updated) backup of my intel debian packages on our server..

2. Install the package using dpkg, a Debian utility that is installed with fink, i.e.,

 sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
