First extra package available for Hex 1.0.2! (honeysnap-

November 23, 2007

The first addon packages are now available for Hex (version 1.0.1 or 1.0.2)! I have successfully created a FreeBSD port and a Hex package for the honeysnap project. You can find the files here ( until they are put into an official hex repository.

If you only want the port, download the honeysnap- file (note that this file will require a full /usr/ports tree in order to build any dependencies, make sure you fetch the ports on a Hex install before trying to build from source). Untar the file (I usually put it in /usr/ports/security/honeysnap), enter the directory and issue the following command:

sudo make install

It should automatically build all the dependencies and install honeysnap for you.

If you want a faster way, download the honeysnap- package and it’s dependency the py25-setuptools-0.6c7_1.tbz package into the same directory and issue the following:

sudo pkg_add -v ./honeysnap-

The setuptools package will automatically be installed as a dependency.

After installation, you should be able to type “honeysnap” and get all the command-line options, happy honeysnap-ing!

As always, if you have any questions or problems, feel free to email me or leave a comment!

P.S. Forgot to mention, the package above will only work for Hex 1.0.*, however, the port (the honeysnap- file) will work on both Hex 1.0.* and FreeBSD 6.* without a problem. Hopefully I’ll be submitting it to the FreeBSD team for review soon to have it included in the standard ports :)
