SlackBuild scripts for important plugins

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...

SlackBuild scripts for important plugins

Post#1 by bdheeman » 26 Sep 2014, 07:01

I'm sharing these scripts in a hope that these will make your life easier for building, (re-)packaging and, or creating Porteus modules for some of the plugins we usually need for popular web browsers.

Please try:
http://ebba.ddns.net/pub/Linux/SlackBui ... gin.tar.xz
http://ebba.ddns.net/pub/Linux/SlackBui ... gin.tar.xz
and:
http://ebba.ddns.net/pub/Linux/SlackBuilds/jre7.tar.xz
http://ebba.ddns.net/pub/Linux/SlackBuilds/jre8.tar.xz
see also:
http://ebba.ddns.net/pub/Linux/SlackBuilds/

Most of these will help you auto-magically download and (re-)package respective latest binary blobs available at upstream sites :)

EDIT: updated links to new site/locations ;-)

Nice.

Here is what I got.

root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads/hangouts-plugin# ./hangouts-plugin.SlackBuild
./hangouts-plugin.SlackBuild: line 29: source: hangouts-plugin.info: file not found
## Fixed by add ./ before the .info file on the offending line

Continuing i got this:

root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads/hangouts-plugin# ./hangouts-plugin.SlackBuild
udist.sh: installed version '5.4.2.0' is up-to-date

Will test it more later.

First of all, thanks for testing and feedback :)

Me, having experience and background as a Debian, Ubuntu, ArchLinux and FreeBSD developer prefer to work (remain logged in) as regular user only; I think, I have . in my $PATH.

I'm sorry, forget to test it after refactoring the udist.sh indeed; there was a typo at line 29, s|/de/|/deb/| :(
Fixed please, download http://bdheeman.ddns.net/pub/SlackBuild ... gin.tar.xz again.

You're right, the above are the correct download links; I also used these earlier at some development stage, but I now have switched over to 'apt' repository versions though extracting/guessing version info for above was quite easy and fun for me.

The reason of switching to this method of-course is downloading latest relevant upstream package with version information in the package name, so that we may also remove stale package(s) when not needed; plz do check the logic I use in udist.sh script.
