Another dumbass mac question
Continuing my "research" using osx;
Most of the useful stuff is already here: python, vim,emacs, bash, grep, sed, awk, scp, ssh. But there is a bunch of things I need that is missing. How do I add useful repositories? I want to install things like minicom,nmap
I'm using "11.4.2 Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.2" which probably means a tiger, leopard or something.

HomeBrew is a very popular package manager for OS X. You can browse the entire list of packages here (minicom and nmap are both there).
That's Lion (v10.7.5).

It's probably worth mentioning MacPorts too. Since it has been around a lot longer than HomeBrew, there are more far more packages available (over 16,000).
HomeBrew and MacPorts both have their own advantages and disadvantages so you may want to try each out to see which one you prefer.
