Trying Vshnu: Installation

I have been wanting to try out the vshnu shell for a while.  So when I was scanning my inifinite todo list for low priority things to do to avoid my high priority tasks, I saw an entry to install vshnu.

A short detour before I get to installing vshnu: I discovered cpan a while ago when I was installing some modules for Amarok a while ago.  If you are unfamiliar with perl like me, it is a really neat way of installing perl modules without all the extra work.  Using cpan, I installed some dependencies.  Make sure you shell into root before running cpan.

cpan> install Term::Screen

cpan> install Filesys:: DiskFree

Back in limited user land…

$ perl Makefile.PL

$ sudo make install clean

$ vshnu
