Download Fink Binary Release
The binary release of Fink saves you the burden of compiling the programs on your local machine. After installing a base system using the installer package, you can download pre-compiled binary packages from this site with the dselect and apt-get tools. Only a part of the packages are actually available as binary packages; the others can only be built from source as with the source release. This is mainly due to legal reasons with the affected (missing) packages.
