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...

md5sum: a9a72c5ac94b4df4df367de28934ab1a usm-3.1.0-noarch-3.xzm

is inserted the routines that were dropped out.

By multi language, on the newest version tool selectors don't work.
So, this is a trial version.

Thanks.

Under 32 bit, I was not able to start usm. I have tried to donwload usm from github:
https://github.com/brokenman/usm

usm will not boot. Trying from cli mode:

Code: Select all

Francois the github holds the realtime source files. Here is how it should be used:

As root

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/brokenman/usm.git
cd usm
make install
Then you can use USM as you normally would. I recommend using the slackware package from sourceforge as it contains the required files to use the 'update' function.

It seems something is escaping to my unrefined spirit:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# git clone https://github.com/brokenman/usm.git
bash: git: command not found
root@porteus:~#


There must be a git package somewhere? :oops:

My problem is that usm does not function at all.

I realized that maybe I had not the git package on my system. With git installed as a module. I could git. :)

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/brokenman/usm.git
Cloning into 'usm'...
remote: Counting objects: 602, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (9/9), done.

However, with a little thinking I thought about getting it from pkgs.org, here is git for 64bit:
http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackw ... 6_64-1.txz

Just in case some other fellow needs it. :D

@brokenman:

Thanks brokenman. usm gui is updated now on my system.

With this tip on git, once again you have extended my comprehension of the linux universe. With you we always feel that we get smarter. 8)

I hope that you get rid rapidly of this =@ dengue.

Here just proposing a small implement to accelerate the manipulations for modules created by usm. Once the modules are ready there is a message:
modules are in /tmp/usm/, would you offer the option of opening /tmp/usm/ folder?

Thanks. :)

Thanks slaxmax, I have corrected this bug when all deps are resolved and the report file does not exist.

Francois I have added the option to open the storage folder (when in GUI mode) after downloading packages.

Freestyler I will add merge of module to the module tools. This is easier since I can't tell which modules should be merged in the case that someone uses a single download folder for all packages and doesn't delete old stuff. The module tool will allow one to choose which modules they want to merge into one.

Bour I will certainly add slackware-current to USM but i wanted to test it on 14.1 first. Adding slackware-current will increase the slackware user base "10 fold" and I want it to be stable before then.

All the above changes have been added to the github only. Once i add the 'module merge' i will push another version to sourceforge as an official release. To get the updates go into the folder where you first cloned the git repository (above thread) and issue: git pull which will pull all the latest updates. Then make install to install the new files from the source code. If you are asked about overwriting a man file just say yes. This is a slackware file no harm done overwriting in in Porteus.

Thanks very much for road testing this guys. You are all great.

sooner or later you'll get breakage (depends how far Pat goes with libs bumping) . bad idea to include -current.

Hi!
I thought
/slackware gave tested packages (base)
/currentpatches gave packages to be tested (more accurate)
/current gave packages tested to suit the version of slackware after tested in patches
pls add a warning in packages (patches and current) but add
thanks

slackware patches is ok as is compiled on stable release.
-current is a 'pre' new release so things must break at some stage.
