slackpkg: blacklisting the calligra-l10n- packages without the one for de


Hello,

I'm running Slackware64-current and after the last KDE-update there are lots of calligra-l10n packages available. Now when I execute
Code:
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg wants to install all of these packages (in addition to the de package which I've already installed). I've now blacklisted the packages with a line
Code:
calligra-l10n-
in my /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file. This works but of course will prevent updates for the calligra-l10n-de package as well.

My Question: Is ist possible to exclude packages in the blacklist explicitly? I've tried to blacklist with
Code:
calligra-l10n-[^d]
but this doesen't work.

And an additional question: why does slackpkg try to install all of the calligra-l10n packages but not for example the kde-l10n- packages?

Thanks in advance.

Markus

Hello,

if you can't get all but de blacklisted, I would simply keep calligra-l10n- blacklisted, then "slackpkg install calligra-l10n-*de*"

After all, you only will have to do that _once_in_a_lifetime_

Hello,

thanks for the answer, I suppose you're right, I'll have to do this updates manually if necessary.

You can always do it the old fashioned way, just blacklist all of the calligra language packages, except for the one you want of course:

calligra-l10n-ca
calligra-l10n-ca@valencia
calligra-l10n-cs
calligra-l10n-da
#calligra-l10n-de
calligra-l10n-el
calligra-l10n-en_GB
calligra-l10n-es
calligra-l10n-et
calligra-l10n-fi
calligra-l10n-fr
calligra-l10n-hu
calligra-l10n-it
calligra-l10n-kk
calligra-l10n-nb
calligra-l10n-nds
calligra-l10n-nl
calligra-l10n-pl
calligra-l10n-pt
calligra-l10n-pt_BR
calligra-l10n-ru
calligra-l10n-sk
calligra-l10n-sv
calligra-l10n-uk
calligra-l10n-zh_CN

Note in ChangeLog.txt, the "Added" is why calligra shows and not kde

kdei/calligra-l10n-zh_CN-2.4.0-noarch-1.txz: Added.
kdei/calligra-l10n-zh_TW-2.4.0-noarch-1.txz: Added.
kdei/kde-l10n-ar-4.8.2-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.

Hello,

that's it. I did only think of regular expressions thanks for the answer.
