FinkCommander is a graphical user interface for the Fink software packaging system for Mac OS X. It provides an intuitive front-end to the Fink command-line tools for downloading and installing Unix software.

Because ion changed the location of Perl v5.10, one needs to setup a symlink in order for FinkCommander to work:

sudo -s
ln -s perl5.10 /usr/bin/perl5.10.0

Also you must be running fink 0.31.0 or later. See the fink entry for a pedantic method of re-installing fink.

sudo -s
ln -s perl5.10 /usr/bin/perl5.10.0

doesn't seem to work for me (on /sw), is there any feedback on whether this works in 10.7.3 as well?

cheers - mattia

If you install fink anywhere other than /sw FinkCommander does not seem to find the packages even if you do set the path in the preferences. The fix is to make a symbolic link at /sw
