[not4noobs] ...Base Module Package Upgrade

Posted: 03 Aug 2017, 16:06

For those who are interested in this doing this sort of thing,
I recently upgraded automake in 05-devel.xzm with my,
"hardened" version using these command line parameters...
ROOT=/pathtoextractedmoduledir upgradepkg oldpackagename%newpackage.txz
Note: the "new package.txz" must be in the same directory,
as the base .xzm module that will be extracted.

Precompiled .txz packages are available @...
slakfinder.org or pkgs.org

Also... the oldpackagename can be copied from /var/log/packages

My preferred upgrade directory path is... /root/Downloads/
