[not4noobs] ...Base Module Package Upgrade

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 03 Aug 2017, 16:06

For those who are interested in this doing this sort of thing,
I recently upgraded automake in 05-devel.xzm with my,
"hardened" version using these command line parameters...
ROOT=/pathtoextractedmoduledir upgradepkg oldpackagename%newpackage.txz
Note: the "new package.txz" must be in the same directory,
as the base .xzm module that will be extracted.

Precompiled .txz packages are available @...
slakfinder.org or pkgs.org

Also... the oldpackagename can be copied from /var/log/packages

My preferred upgrade directory path is... /root/guest/Downloads/"extractedmoduledir"
I do NOT have the right to tell anyone what they should do...
but I always reserve the right to tell them what to consider.
