Re: Indecipherable Fedora RPMs

Newer fedora rpm's use 7z compression. rpm2cpio doesn't know about 7z yet.

Re: [HOW TO] Compile a package from source

And what about when DESTDIR is not supported -or worse, only partially supported?

Re: Porteus-AUR: Building Porteus modules w/ Arch build scri

The trouble with all the sbo deps info is that they assume a complete installation as the base. So even the info they provide is partial and helps not one bit when trying to cut down to less than a complete installation. AUR PKGBUILD scripts also are not ideal as they contain arbitrary depends info ...

"CLI and GUI will eventually be rewritten as one single script" Ewww, bad idea. Optimized code, yes.

Re: PPM: What is under the hood? What would you propose?

Do you mean me with 'fingers in the nose'? I'm the author of src2pkg -20,000+ lines (and counting).

Re: PPM: What is under the hood? What would you propose?

I'd like to point out, that src2pkg is made for 'creating packages', not managing them. But, it is easily scriptable so that it can be wrapped into any other script.

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

Sorry, I hadn't seen the replies and questions. First, when src2pkg fails during 'fake_install' with this error: FATAL! Running 'make install' You can see that both DESTDIR and JAIL have been tried. So time to try one of the other three methods, -UNION, -SAFE or -REAL. Or, since you seemt convinced ...

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

Hmmm, you'd need to edit it to use uxterm instead of xterm -if uxterm supports the syntax used. Fine that you've found src2pkg-dnd -it is handy -mostly for having it write a script for you -so you don't have to spell out tarball-names. And it will work fine to build simple things which need no extra...

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

src2pkg can only find out the dependencies once it has successfully built the package. The person creating the packages still has to figure out, or choose, what is needed to be able to build it. Actually, the routines may not even be working so great for *.tgz packages -I've concentrated the impleme...

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

1. Do you have a pretty complete development environment on that machine? You need gcc, glibc-headers, make, autoconf & Co., etc. AFAIK, src2pkg build fine on a normal Slackware-64 box. Are you able to compile other/most sources normally? 2. No, you haven't understood. src2pkg can be used to convert...

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

src2pkg can often build packages from sources even when no 'recipe' or build script is used. It remains unique in this aspect. Of course, using a *.src2pkg build script provides a record of how the package was built and gives you full access to all options, tricks, etc -including being able to skip ...

Re: [RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

I'd certainly like to work with you to perfect an 'extension' for src2pkg which would create your modules for you. Actually, big_bass shared some bits of code with me which are nearly ready to try. I have read all the comments about src2pkg which have been made here. Most of them can be addresses ea...

[RELEASE] src2pkg-2.9

I've just released a new version of src2pkg(2.9), which fixes a couple of minor bugs when dealing with filenames which contain spaces. The ChangeLog is here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigolinux/download/src2pkg/ChangeLog The installable package for Porteus is here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigoli...
