Install Nano Text Editor on PiLFS

Install Nano Text Editor on PiLFS

Pilfs does come with vi, but i personally prefer nano text editor so let compile config and install it.

First we need to grab the tar file and extract it.

tar -xzvf nano-2.4.1.tar.gz
cd nano-2.4.1

Now lets install nano with the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr 
--docdir=/usr/share/doc/nano-2.4.1 &&

And then:

make install &&
install -v -m644 doc/nanorc.sample /etc &&
install -v -m644 doc/texinfo/nano.html /usr/share/doc/nano-2.4.1

Now you should have nano text editor up and running just execute the command: nano 🙂
