[SOLVED] ...USM dependency

Post#1 by fullmoonremix » 17 Aug 2016, 00:02

Of the following packages... which one (or more?) is NOT a USM dependency?

1) glibc
2) gcc
3) ncurses
4) readline
5) bash
6) pcre
7) glib2

I'm trying to move USM to a separate module without breaking anything.
I would also like to know if there are any additional dependencies.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Have you considered posting your question on the USM site? https://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/support

@ Ed_P... I'm aware of the link. I'm a Sourceforge member.
I could have also PM'ed Jay directly. Hmmm... "so many choices so little time".

@ Blaze... Thanx Blaze. gtkdialog? Interesting. I'm eager to learn more.
Although... I still wonder if USM ("CLI") uses any or all of the above packages.

I assume USM ("CLI") @ least uses glibc and likely glib2.
However... I'm not sure. Hence... this thread.

USM is a bash script basically. It uses gtkdialog for the gui and depending on which dm you are using it looks for kdesu, gksu, or ktsuss.

I also see a directory under "/usr/share/usm" with helper scripts you would need if you are moving it to another system.

Thanks... jmhoward56. Now I'm cooking with fire.
I suspected bash and script dependency.

Basically... the above referenced packages in order of dependency
form the core of linux (see... Linux From Scratch )

I am tearing 000-core.xzm apart leaving for the most part the
above noted packages and support for USM... MC and Connman.

With this minimum loadout I will rebuild 001-xorg.xzm.

Just don't expect a reply from Jay until after the Olympics. I would be surprised he's not at them. :)

If you are against gtk then you can remove gtkdialog as long as you call USM from a console. It is designed as a hybrid CLI/GUI script so that if you run it from CLI none of the GUI elements are required. Here is a list of things you will need in CLI.

bash
gettext
grep
awk
ldd
wget

You may also like to try slackyd which does the same thing as USM and may be more suitable for your project.

Thanks... brokenman.

You are correct... I am not happy with Gtk/Qt.
At least not with 001-core.xzm requiring their dependencies (eg. NetworkManager).

However... I don't think their use in 002-xorg.xzm is a deal breaker.

I located the latest USM @ https://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/files/14.2/

I'm not familiar with slackyd.
Does it use the same repos as USM?
Can it be integrated into xfe (Fox toolkit) file manager?
Does it make .xzm or .txz modules?

I believe it only uses the slackware repository for the distro installed.

It is a CLI so if you can write custom commands for xfe then probably yes.
Does it make .xzm or .txz modules?
To my knowledge, no.

Slackyd will download packages, which are either .txz or .tgz. To the best of my knowledge there are no .txz modules in Porteus.

Sorry... **typo... "can it convert to .xzm (txz2xzm) or does it use only .txz"
