Make?

Post#1 by blue4meridian » 13 Jul 2015, 20:44

Salutations... :good:

I don't know how to use "make"... :wall: What is the command line syntax to create a binary "package"?
My current list of uncompiled downloaded apps is rapidly growing.

Best Regards... :beer:

make creates(compiles) (from source files) the binary(s) and other files needed for a package.
in slackware, we use the *.SlackBuild script to, first , 'make', and then, 'install' to a fakeroot, which is then compressed into a 'package'.txz
as well, there is quite often a 'configure --someoption' step before make....
that is, if the software uses 'make' ... theres also cmake, scons etc ...

the 'readme' file in the source often will provide relevant instuctions...
also, checkout the 'src2pkg' progam in the dev module, it automates the process..

but have a look at a SlackBuild, they are deceptively simple and adaptable..

Salutations... :good:

There is one small problem... :oops: the downloads are .zip (instead of '.tar.gz' or '.tar.bz') which contain the 'makefile' :wall:
When I extract the .zip and use the 'make' command (eg. make /.../tinyalsa) some output files are executables and others are .so libraries.

None are packages. :cry:

Best Regards... :beer:

hi you have to do two action before...../configure or autobuild.sh that prepare the environment of make without the ./configure nothing is possible. maybe the package is on slackbuild repos? if you have enough space on the driver install sbopkg,this software make a rsync of the whole slackbuild repository in /var/lib and you can build all the packages you want,,browser the directories and make packages

Let's use an example @... :wink:
http://rxproxy.com/index.php?rxproxyuri ... RpbnlhbHNh

Using the above example... what are exactly 'all' the (non-arcane... non-verbose... non-theoretical/hypothetical :wall: )
steps required to actually produce this .xzm package from start to finish.

I'm sorry... :oops: I'm just a humble newbian.

Hmmm... so simple :oops: take the executable(s) created by 'make'
copy that to a 'new' /.../usr/bin folder ...then use the USM to make a module.

Ok,,, it worked. I tried it with mlibtool.

However... :wall: it doesn't work on many others like...

Please document more objectively your results and difficulties so we can provide sound solutions.

How should I ask questions linux wise or on porteus forum:

Salutations... :good:

In the previous post I found a partial adhoc solution. :wall:
However... I'm a long way from figuring this whole thing out on my own.

The community solution that I'm petitioning is a tutorial :Search:
A step by step (demystified... non-verbose... non-theoretical/hypothetical... non-referenced) tutorial using the real world links that I gave.

Basically... the links I gave are for dropin alternatives that can be changed to .xzms then noted (in layman's terms... remember I'm a newbian :oops: ).
I don't think that anything is broken so there is nothing to fix other than my ignorance.

Best Regards... :beer:

@blue:
You cannot completely escape some kind of learning curve. The hyperlinks provided by the different forum members are very good. What we can do better is to provide packages that you could build from source with different difficulty levels, and from memory there should be in the hyperlinks provided.

Personally, I am no IT specialist, had had a unique course of programming at the university 30 years ago, which I did not used after. You have to try and do it step by step. As I stated above, you have to document your difficulties, so we could follow you. Did you read the links we provided? :twisted:

Salutations... :good:

I'm usually a quick study but this is outside my skill set. :cry:
I scored 95% on my CompTIA A+ on memory management.
Which is my area of expertise. System integration is not.

I have successfully compiled mlibtool . 8)
I have so far successfully depreciated libtool and libevent with mlibtool and libev.

I have failed decisively to depreciate gcc and glibc with tcc and musl. :wall:
I have failed to compile 'uselessd' and tinyxlib "dropins" (just to name a few).

I'm way over my head @ this point in my quest (embedded GPU load-balancing "Heterogeneous Porteus") to depreciate the Porteus base modules.

So if anyone is knowledgeable in doing this stuff... :unknown:
download the above noted "dropin" zip files convert them to .xzm then share your experiences.

Best regards... :beer:

@ blue...
Troll mode on/
it's not "if anyone is knowledgeable in doing this stuff"
but rather
"is anyone interested in doing this stuff ?"
