SlackBuild


I followed a generic SlackBuild to create my own SlackBuild.

I modified a couple of lines, ran the script, and installed the package. The program works so I think I did everything right. There's one thing that I don't think I'm doing right when configuring the SlackBuild. There are still leftover files in the /tmp directory. Should I manually remove them, edit the SlackBuild to remove them or leave them there?

ie:
Code:
[~]$ cd /tmp/
[tmp]$ ls
. . . 
package-vnstat
vnstat-1.4
[tmp]$

It is usual to have something like:
Code:
# Clean up
if [ "$1" = "--cleanup" ]; then
  rm -rf ${TMP}/${NAME}-${VERSION}
  rm -rf $PKG
fi
at the end of your slackbuild script, and the script cleans up after you when you call it like:
Code:
# sh prog.SlackBuild --cleanup
And yes, it is safe to remove those directories

Thanks for the reply, I realized the template I followed has the following:

Code:
# Clean up the extra stuff:

if [ "$1" = "--cleanup" ]; then
  rm -rf $PKG
fi
When I ran the script I ran it without the --cleanup option. I edited it to include the extra remove and ran it with the --cleanup option and it removes the directories. Thank-you, appreciate the help .
