nano is a curses-based text editor for Unix and Unix-like systems, licensed under the GNU General Public License. It is a free software clone of Pico, the editor of the Pine email client. nano aims to emulate the functionality and easy-to-use interface of Pico, but does not have the tight mailer integration of the Pine/Pico package.



There are two options on how to install nano in OpenLink, either run a precompiled Static Binary or compile your own: Build From Source

Use Static Binaries


cd /usr/bin
wget http://downloads.nas-central.org/powerpc-hdhlan-LS1/ppc-nano_static
mv ppc-nano_static nano


cd /usr/bin
wget http://downloads.nas-central.org/LS2_MIPSel/Packages/mipsel-nano_2.0
mv mipsel-nano_2.0 nano

Build From Source

  1. Install the Precompiled C development environment, running on the LS
  2. Get the source tarball and compile
wget http://www.nano-editor.org/dist/v2.0/nano-2.0.2.tar.gz
tar xvfz nano-2.0.2.tar.gz
cd nano-2.0.2/
make install

If you run into problems with not having the sort command available, see here: http://nas-central.org/index.php/Sort_is_missing_in_OpenLink-mipsel
