Slackpkg blacklist ignored when using clean-system on current


As per the subject line, the latest slackpkg doesn't honor the blacklist when using the clean-system option. It tries to make my multilib system unhappy.

I fixed this by changing line 656 in /usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh

Code:
checkblacklist
to
Code:
checkblacklist && continue
The remove section above this one probably needs the same treatment as well.

Good patch. You may email PiterPunk(address located in the source file) to get him this fix and I believe he will accept yours.

Specifically when using clean-system? I'm just curious if it's something only happening on my system, or perhaps related to the upgrade to bash 4 a little while back.

Yes, even with clean-system. There has been a recent slackpkg package update (updated by slackpkg itself. Weird, huh? ). Now, I can't tell if the older package respected my blacklist because I really don't remember, but after this thread I made a test and everything is O.k - clean-system, upgrade and remove.

Theres a new beta http://slackpkg.org/beta/slackpkg-2....1-noarch-2.tgz with the following changes:

Quote:
2010 Sat May 01
---------------
- Use $TMPDIR/pkglist instead $WORKDIR/tmplist on many places.
This avoids problems when slackpkg does self-upgrade.
- Change CHECKSIZE default to "off"
- Fix CHECKSIZE to only check mountpoints. This avoids problems when
the system have networked or DVD/CDs mounted
(Thanks alienbob and vbatts)
- Change version number to 2.81.1
- Released as 2.81.1beta1. Happy Workers Day!

2010 Wed Apr 28
---------------
- Fix blacklist checking on 'slackpkg clean-system'. It was
checking if the package is blacklisted but didn't use this
information.
(Reported by Greg and Shuren)
- Change 2.81 release date on ChangeLog and README to 2010 *Fri*
Apr 23, not 2010 *Thu* Apr 23.
(Thanks gui_ap)
