[SCRIPT] remove only recently installed packages GUI

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...

[SCRIPT] remove only recently installed packages GUI

Post#1 by bigbass » 27 Jan 2012, 19:19

what this does is remove recently installed packages NOT modules
you must have an installed Porteus because this looks for the "boot device:" /mnt/live/var/log/livedbg
this way only a small list of packages will be seen making it easy to see what you had installed recently
it uses a Xdialog GUI checklist

*If you have no packages installed this app wont do anything so install a package to test

I may have to install quite a few packages to compile and this allows for better quick control
of what is installed by me to view and remove when needed


Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

# 8-7-2010  modified for Porteus Jan-27-2012
# built for TXZ_pup  big_bass 
# remove-recently-installed-packages 
# make a smaller list so its easy to 
# find recently installed packages  


# make folders clean up files
mkdir -p /tmp/remover

rm -f /tmp/remover/new_list.*  
rm -f /tmp/remover/return2


# these are the packages recently installed  to Porteus
# thanks Hamza for letting me know about the osdev string 
osdev=`grep -A1 "boot device:" /mnt/live/var/log/livedbg | sed -n '2p'`
echo $osdev
cd /mnt/live/mnt/$osdev/porteus/changes/var/log/packages
ls $pwd -1 >/tmp/remover/new_list.tmp
cd $HOME

# generated list for Xdialog GUI added to the body later
    for i in  `cat /tmp/remover/new_list.tmp` ; do
        echo \"$i\" \" \" OFF "\\">> /tmp/remover/new_list.tmp3   
    done

--checklist "Select  files to remove       \
                                             \n"  0 0 0  \

echo "`cat /tmp/remover/new_list.tmp3`">>  /tmp/remover/files_files_viewer

It was possible to track directly the porteus boot device by using $porteus variable but it has been removed due to some reported user's troubles.
