    Is it possible to install Optware from the homebrew terminal app on the Pre via the same code you would use on novaterm?

    and can you do the same with Quilt?

    cd /tmp
    wget hxxp://gitorious.org/webos-internals/bootstrap/blobs/raw/master/optware-bootstrap.sh
    #Alternately you can use this tiny url hxxp://tinyurl.com/n8q2vy
    sh optware-bootstrap.sh
    source /etc/profile.d/optware

    When you access the Linux command line using the Terminal, you are at the very same place as if you accessed the Linux command line using novaterm or ssh.

    My recollection (haven't checked to be sure) is when I installed quilt, it required a significant number of dependencies on other software (including Perl). I also noticed around the same time that I didn't have much space left on my device (Ie: I could not install more app-store apps.) I'm sure Rod can/will correct any mis-statements that I've just made, but if I were you, I'd check your available space before and after installing quilt.
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    We have quilt-lite now which is much more reasonable.
