[ RELEASE ] src2pkg-2.5 is released
 
A new version of src2pkg (2.5) has been released here: src2pkg all

The (noarch) package for Slackware is available here: src2pkg-2.5-noarch-2.tgz

Packages for deb or rpm-based distros, along with Slitaz or puppy Linux are found here: Other packages

This version includes only a few minor changes But, it's been a while since the last release so it seemed worth releasing.

As always, if you have any prolems or questions I can be e-mailed directly at: amigo [AT] ibiblio [DOT] org
Please put the word 'src2pkg' in the subject line so your email doesn't get lost with the spam. Please report any problems as soon as possible.

Thanks!
Gilbert

Great balls of fire!

Thanks Gilbert!

Not obscene, checkout the song Brian! BTW, not a joking matter for inference here so do not post if you cannot be constructive.

Enough said!

Maybe 'large flaming testicles' would sound better??!! Or maybe the reference is to a fire department dance...

"May you improve it forever." I like that, but I am glad that most of my stupendous ideas for it have either been implemented or rejected -makes me less nervous at relase time. Most of the recent work has been aimed at the less-used features of src2pkg -like supporting other formats, package-splitting, etc.

I've also built a compact distro using src2pkg for everything except gcc and glibc. If anyone is interested or needs a reference src2pkg build script for some basic package, everything can be found here: Keep It Simple, Sir ... don't expect to find an installer or ISO's there, though -still to be done. A running system can be created, though, assuming you are pretty good at shoe-horning things...

Thanks a lot. Src2pkg saves me a lot of time.

This is constructive to the thread how?

brianL 07-20-2011 10:38 AM

It's constructive criticism, you're taking things too seriously. Lighten up. Slack off. :)

Next is merely my tiny, wee little 1/2 or 1/4 of a cent. But, of course, definitely, yes, do define for yourself, independently of me. And, let us be appropriately slack.

A or some kind or sort of a birthday (re [perhaps a birthday of] Gilbert's creativity that I'm so fortunate that he shares).

FWIW:

(I myself learned, BTW). Anyways, FWIW:

FWIW. Did I say FWIW yet?
