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 :-)

Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [ "$(id -u)" != "0" ]; then
   echo "This script must be run as root" 1>&2
   exit 1
fi

LOCALDIR="/var/cache/multilib/"
REMOTEDIR="rsync://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/14.0/"
BLACKLISTFILE="/etc/slackpkg/blacklist"
LOG="/tmp/multilib-rsync.log"
if [ ! -d "$LOCALDIR" ]; then
	echo The local directory does not exists!;
	while true; do		
		read -p "Do you want me to create the folder $LOCALDIR?" yn 
 		case $yn in
  			[Yy]* ) mkdir $LOCALDIR; break;; 
  			[Nn]* ) echo "Aborting! Please fix your local dir";  exit 1;;
  			* ) echo "Please answer Y/y or N/n";;
 		esac
	done	
fi

grep -q "\[0\-9\]+alien" $BLACKLISTFILE ##comment out from here to ... 

if [ $? -eq 1 ]

then
	echo "Warning no [0-9]+alien found in $BLACKLISTFILE ! Updating with slackpkg might break your system!"
	while true; do		
		read -p "Do you want me to add it?" yn 
 		case $yn in
  			[Yy]* ) echo "[0-9]+alien" >> $BLACKLISTFILE; echo "[0-9]+alien added to $BLACKLISTFILE"; echo -e "\n"; break;; 
  			[Nn]* ) break;;
  			* ) echo "Please answer Y/y or N/n";;
 		esac
	done

fi

grep -q "\[0\-9\]+compat32" $BLACKLISTFILE 

if [ $? -eq 1 ]

then
	echo -e "\n"
	echo "Warning no [0-9]+compact32 found in $BLACKLISTFILE ! Updating with slackpkg might break your system!"
	while true; do		
		read -p "Do you want me to add it?" yn 
 		case $yn in
  			[Yy]* ) echo "[0-9]+compat32" >> $BLACKLISTFILE; echo "[0-9]+compat32 added to $BLACKLISTFILE"; echo -e "\n"; break;; 
  			[Nn]* ) break;;
  			* ) echo "Please answer Y/y or N/n";;
 		esac
	done
fi ##here to stop the script from checking the blacklist file 

echo "Downloading packages... Please wait"
rsync -azv --progress --delete --exclude "/debug/*"  $REMOTEDIR $LOCALDIR | tee $LOG
output=$(grep .txz$ $LOG) 

if [ $? -eq 0  ]

then 

echo $output | tr ' ' '\n'

while true; do

 read -p "There have been changes, do you want to update these packages?" yn 
 case $yn in
  [Yy]* ) for i in $output; do upgradepkg --install-new $LOCALDIR$i || echo "Error while upgrading!" && exit 1 ; done; echo "All packages updated!"; break;; 
  [Nn]* ) echo "Aborting!";  exit 1;;
  * ) echo "Please answer Y/y or N/n";;
 esac

done

else 

echo "No updates found!"

fi

Thanks!
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.
