Blacklist package group from slackpkg


Hello.

Is there a way to blacklist a whole package group (e.g KDE) in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist?

I have a clean 14.0 install that I'd like to upgrade to -current-I didn't install the KDE group but slackpkg install-new pulls in some new packages from the KDE group. Obviously I can sort this manually if the answer is no.

I'd do it like this. Get the package names somewhere, for example from a Slackware source DVD. You should get something like this:

http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...de/slack-desc/

Then do a simple pipe:

Code:
# ls > blacklist.txt
This saves you from typing all package names manually, and it's a lot more accurate.

Code:
slackpkg blacklist kde
will present you a handy list of all kde packages. Just check packages you want to blacklist.

If you want to have all packages blacklisted by default in that list, just set
Code:
ONOFF=on
in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf
