Making Modules without RTFM

Postby Bogomips » 07 Mar 2016, 20:20

Making a Module from a Collection of Packages

  1. Put all packages going to make up the module in a new work directory
  2. If all packages have extension *.txz or *.tgz, go to 5.
  3. Convert RPM packages using rpm2txz
  4. Using (latest version in thread of) Script to make Slackware Compliant package of xz, deb
    • Convert .deb:
      Code: Select all
      sh deb2txz.sh  -nv [/path to package/]<package>.deb
    • Convert .xz:
      Code: Select all
      sh xz2txz.sh -nv [/path to package/]<package>.xz
  5. Create a Fakeroot Directory
    Code: Select all
    mkdir fkr
    As Root:
    Code: Select all
    # installpkg  --terse  --root fkr  *.t?z
    Create Module
    Code: Select all
    # dir2xzm  fkr  <name of desired module>.xzm
Enjoy!

I thought francois said we weren't suppose to use abbreviations cause some members don't know what they mean. So you need to change the title. :wink:

Its interesting to note that while Porteus has so many GUI tools built in most posts to fix problems are terminal examples. Don't get me wrong, they are effective and solve the problems, and I for one have learned a lot from them. And these steps I could have used a few days ago when I was trying to combine some modules.

^ Suppose it is that one really does not have the time to play around with the GUIs, unless a GUI really takes the strain from the brain, which the ISO FIle Editor does. :wink: As for abbreviations, those universally known in the Linux world are to the best of my knowledge allowed. Francois himself has seen fit to provide RTFM together with its long form: 'Read the Fine Manual". 8)

My version of RTFM is not so fine; neither that of "foobar"! :)(fine on our bastard aknowledgment requirement)
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
