USM Unified Slackware Package Manager

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

There is a recurring problem in trying to update usm database slacky will not update. Could there be a specific problem tied to usm?

As a correlate, trying to download slackyd from pkgs.org there is no response. Would this be a cue to the problem?

Bumped to v3.1.8
Only change was adding the slackonly repository since it was asked for multiple times.
I will continue developing this when I get more time.

Available on github for 24 hours.
https://github.com/brokenman/usm

I will test for 24 hours and then push to sourceforge after which you can update through USM.

I had no idea the mod even existed. Nice work cttan!

I can't say whether it will replace his module or not. I am not sure how he generated the LIBS.TXT file which is required by USM to correctly generate dependency lists. All I can say is that this version adds the slackonly repository to USM and updates daily.

@brokenman:

A little bug here after

Code: Select all

usm -u usm
and update all database, at next bootup, I have to reupdate databases. The on the second bootup, I get:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g package-name

 You are missing required database files! 
 Please run: usm -u all

root@porteus:~#


I have to update all database each time I want to use usm. Is this normal? Can anyone confirm as it happens only in persistent mode? (one cannot reboot with the always fresh mode).
