Sbopkg 0.30.1 Released
I wanted to wait a few days to post this here (and most folks here probably already know this) but sbopkg version 0.30.1 has been released (which is a bugfix release to the sbopkg 0.30.0 release for Slackware 13.0). The 0.30.x branch of sbopkg has many substantial changes from prior versions, and is intended to work seamlessly with Slackware 13.0 32 and 64 bit and the SlackBuilds.org repository for Slackware 13.0.
Check out the sbopkg ChangeLog
for information about what's new. You can also read about the "new and improved" sbopkg queuefiles here
For those migrating from 0.27.4 and older, it is recommended that you uninstall the old version of sbopkg and then install the new one, instead of upgrading.
Check out http://www.sbopkg.org
for a package or source tarball for version 0.30.1. If you encounter any issues, please post to the sbopkg mailing list
instead of posting here. Please file bug reports at the sbopkg Issue tracker
Thanks to everybody to helped with testing, feedback, and providing bug reports. Those kinds of things are extremely helpful and we really appreciate it. We want sbopkg to be as good as possible, and your feedback is very important.
P.S. Many people have asked how to set $ARCH if they are using sbopkg on Slackware64. The answer is: you don't necessarily need to do anything. Sbopkg checks the output of 'uname -m' and if it returns 'x86_64' then it will build a 64 bit package (assuming the SlackBuild script supports a 64 bit package, of course).
