Well, I gave it a shot at creating a package. I pointed it to dvdauthor as a test package, and it created the package in root's home. While it did work this time, its not something that gives me any control over where it goes or any extra parameters I may wish to add.

That said, overall it can be a useful app, and I think congratulations are in order for your work on this project.

How to compile slackpack?

I want compile myself this package.

I decompress sources, then
# qmake Slackpack.pro
# make.
# make install
this last step does not working
In effect Makefile is:
...
####### Install

install: FORCE

uninstall: FORCE

FORCE:
...
without real actions.

How to install it?

Thanx,
Matteo

P.S.: pardon for my bad english

after qmake && make the slackpack executable is created at the 'bin' folder.
it does not installs itself into the system, however, you can just copy "Slackpack" executable from the /bin directory of the source into '/usr/bin', and run it from everywhere

into slackpack-1.1.7-i686-1.tgz I see many other files as slackpack.desktop, icons and other.
I must to copy all manually? There are not a script (as a SlackBuild or other) to create a slackpack tgz?


I think that may be useful to add an install directive in Makefile, even if I need to copy slackpack executable only


Thx,
Matteo

all these files are included and distributed in the .tgz slackpack package,
i just included them in the source, there's no installation script to fully install slackpack with the icons and stuff yet.

if you just want use Slackpack get latest .tgz package from:
http://slackpackpkgman.wordpress.com/download/

however its in my plans to include an installation script along with the source-code package.

there is a problem in install script:

...
strip /usr/bin/deb2tgz
strip:/usr/bin/deb2tgz: File format not recognized
make: [install_scripts] Error 1 (ignored)
make install try to strip deb2tgz that is a bash shell script.


My workaround to solve is to add "QMAKE_STRIP = echo" into Slackpack.pro

Thanx.

then, in version 1.1.8, the tgz have files that are not in source (all files outside /usr/share/slackpack as slackpack.desktop and others).
These file are presents in 1.1.4 source package, so I must to do:

# cd 1.1.4-source
# make install-data prefix=/
# cd 1.1.8-source
# make install

to build a complete 1.1.8 installation.

Goodbye,
01

well you actually have a complete 1.1.8 installation without copying any data from previous versions, the only that's missing from the source is the candy part of .desktop files and such which they're not necessary in the source side of things.

Hi MysticalGroovy, thanks for sharing your tool. Slackpack v1.1.8 compiled without errors and really improved a lot. Any plan to add support for translations? I played a little with 1.1.5 files and it was almost 85% translated =]

hmm a translation, not a bad idea,
I remember at ver1.1.5 i was trying to include a greek translation with Slackpack but i didnt give it alot of attention at that time.

the next ver of Slackpack will come with a greek translation and a template for translating slackpack to other languages too

Hey all,
i have a question, recently ive been using Slax as my pocket OS for my usbpen-drive, ive also created a slackpack Slax module..

do you think its a good idea to add slax related features to Slackpack? like slackware linux packages convertion to SLax modules and such.. or to leave Slackpack a slackware-only package manager?

thank you

Hello!
I use an usbpen-drive too. I find it very useful.
I tried Slax and NimbleX. Both use LZM modules.
In my opinion (if the proposal is still valid) I think its a very good idea. Do it!
Anyway Slackpack it's very helpful for me.
Good luck!

PS: sorry for my bad english... I am a beginner.

Gabriel
