I'm happily using zerouno's slackpkg+. This nifty plugin has really changed my life as a sysadmin and saved me countless hours when managing multiple machines with the same setup.
Back in my CentOS days, I've been using the yum-priorities plugin (written by ex-Slacker Daniel de Kok), which enables the user to set fine-grained priorities for third-party repositories. Every repository has a priority between 1 and 99, and the one with the lower priority number takes precedence over another with a higher number.
Now I try to copy this behaviour with slackpkg+, but I don't know how. I'll try with an example.
I'm using two third-party repositories:
- Eric Hameleers' Multilib repository for Slackware64
- My own repository for MLWS.
In my own repository I have two modified packages, qt and freetype, and I want to provide multilib packages for these two packages. Which means:
- My own repo has to take precedence over Eric's Multilib repository.
- Eric's Multilib repository in turn has to take precedence over a standard Slackware mirror.
Any idea if this sort of cascading priority setup is possible with slackpkg+?
