Downloading packages with pkg
pkg is the Redox package manager which allows you to add binary packages to a running system. If you want to compile packages, or include binary packages during the build, please see Including Programs in Redox.
You may get better results in an emulator like QEMU than in real hardware (due to limited network devices support).
This tool can be used instead of
make rebuild if you add a new recipe on your TOML config (
desktop.toml for example).
