[RELEASE] src2pkg-2.6


Just in time for 2012, src2pkg-2.6 has been released.

From the CHANGES file:
This version fixes a couple of minor bugs, adds some
enhancements and implements support for the new
KISS-linux 'tpkg' package format.

Notes on upgrading:
As user root, run 'src2pkg --setup' after upgrading
from any earlier Version

Changed back to using INSTALL_TYPE=DESTDIR as it seems
to be more reliable these days, than JAIL

The installable package for Slackware is now in *.txz format

The full ChangeLog is here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigolinux...2pkg/ChangeLog

The installable (now *.txz) package for Slackware is here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigolinux...6-noarch-6.txz

The full sources and packages for other distros/packaging systems are under:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigolinux...kg/src2pkg-2.6

Awesome! Been a while since I've been involved with development, glad to see it keep going. That DESTDIR method actually seems reasonably reliable nowadays makes me particularly happy.

Dead Links

I just tried to get the software and found that the ibiblio links here and on your web page (src2pkg) are all dead. I'd like to try this software; is there a better place to find it?

Thanks!

--Dane

P.S. The versions I found elsewhere install, but don't provide executables. Am I missing something?

When I use the build script and go into the src/fs directory, and type, "find -type f" I get this:

./usr/share/doc/src2pkg-2.4/src2pkg.build-noarch
./usr/src/src2pkg/src2pkg-helpers/postinst

Weird, eh?

This is what the "Download" link at the top right corner of src2pkg.net goes to:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...nload/src2pkg/

It works. It's also the first link in gnashley's email signature.

Yeah, it must have been that ibiblio was temporarily unreachable.

After installing the src2pkg package you must tell src2pkg to compile the executables for you with the command 'src2pkg --setup'. That will compile, package and install the src2pkg-helpers for you -the libs and exe's needed for packahe building. I package it that way so that it can be used on any system, no matter the distro or version. The current src2pkg version is 2.7.

To be fair to DaneM, the links in the body of the first post are dead. And outdated. Which is understandable, considering that the point of the first post was to announce the available of 2.6.

Weird, it is working, now. Thanks for replies, everyone.

I know this thread is about the older version, but I didn't see a newer thread when I did a search on LQ--so this was a posting of last resort. :-)

Notably, the links on the "installation" page of your site are broken--all of them (binary packages, directory link at the bottom, etc.)--presumably, now that I notice, because they're for version 2.4, which may no longer exist on the servers.

http://www.src2pkg.net/install

I think I got tripped-up on the installation because I downloaded just the build file, without realizing that I needed to download the entire directory, as well. I've grown used to .tar.gz/bz2 packages! :-)

Thanks for your work.

--Dane

Update: Since it took some "head-scratching" and wget trickery to determine and acquire the right directory tree, minus the binary packages, I've taken the liberty of compressing the tree into a .tar.bz2 file and uploading it to/publishing it on my UbuntuOne account. Hopefully this will make it easier for others who (like me) didn't quite "get it" right away. gnashley, please let me know if this is problematic, and I'll remove/un-publish the file.

This is all you needed:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...7-noarch-2.txz
That's the installable package. Of course I make the whole source tree available for transparency. Anytime you want to check for new releases, just browse to: http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...nload/src2pkg/
and there you'll find the installable slackware-style package. Nothing else needed, unless you are wanting to hack the sources.
