multilib install/update script
Just wanted to share a small script I wrote to install and update alien bob's multilib packages, I know there are other tools already but they were a bit overwhelming for me so I wrote my own.
It simply makes some sanity checks and then rsyncs /var/cache/multilib/ with alien bob's slackware 14 multilib packages(or whatever folder/slackware version you set up in the script) and upgradepkg --install-new the packages.
Anyway I hope it's of help to someone :-)
I changed LOCALDIR= to point to my local mirror and it seems to work perfect.
I used it to update a pre-installed multilib system.
This is what I've been useing.
##INSTALL NEW MULTI-LIB
#rsync -r -a -v --bwlimit=100 --delete --progress --stats rsync://rsync.slackware.org.uk/people/alien/multilib/current/ /tmp/multi-lib/
#upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t?z
rsync -r -a -v --bwlimit=100 --delete --progress --stats rsync://rsync.slackware.org.uk/people/alien/multilib/current/ /tmp/multi-lib/
upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z
upgradepkg --install-new *?/*.t?z
