[IMPORTANT] Package manager for next release

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Thanks. Finally, I found what I was looking for in /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.10.2d/example.slapt-getrc.i386 that comes with a slapt-get package.

Code: Select all

# Working directory for local storage/cache.
WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get

# Exclude package names and expressions.
# To exclude pre and beta packages, add this to the exclude: 
#   [0-9\_\.\-]{1}pre[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
EXCLUDE=^aaa_elflibs,^devs,^glibc-.*,^kernel-.*,^udev,.*-[0-9]+dl$,x86_64

# Base url to directory with a PACKAGES.TXT.
# This can point to any release, ie: 9.0, 10.0, current, etc.
# You should really choose from an example mirror URI below.
# SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-13.0/:OFFICIAL
...
# Sources for the testing, extra, and pasture areas - if you use them.
# Edit the URI below for the Slackware version you're using.

# Slackware mirrors to choose from.

If someone want post a log , you must use pastebin.com or something like that.

Please do not post a full log in the forum.

But , you can post the source code of a script. ;)

Sure.

But heading to a very important matter: How are we going to resolve the problem of package dependencies from one computer to another as they are going to have different set of modules or packages. Isn't a package manager like slakyd, looking on the computer for existing packages, is essential to resolve the problem of missing or extra dependencies? Remember this was a very big problem on slax.

I would like to hear wise persons on this topic. My simple package needs rules me out on this issue.

I think the modules for Porteus should be screened and tested and have a dependency list in the var/log/packages file. These will be searched for as either already activated or residing in your chosen local modules folder. I think the 'libraries' section of the modules repo will be extensive. It may mean that module progress is slower, but i think it would be better to have modules that work reliably rather than hit and miss as in slax. So far this is only theory and i am happy to receive other ideas. I'd like to release next version of 32bit and then get started on package manager.
How do i become super user?
