The perfect gtkpod.SlackBuild


Finally got around to updating my gtkpod installation today. I figured I'd make a SlackBuild script for it. I tried to make it perfect. I figured that I'd post what I came up with. I borrowed heavily from just about everywhere, so it isn't what I'd consider an "original" script.

Anyone, feel free to use this. Also, if you see some bad coding, or think of something I may be missing, please chime in. My goal is for the package to be FDO standards compliant.

I've tried to comment everything pretty well. You'll notice that I still have a couple questions/issues.

So, here it goes.

gtkpod.SlackBuild

# exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct.  It's also customary to
# leave one space after the ':'.

-j jobs
Specifies the number of jobs (commands) to run simultaneously. If there is more than one -j option, the last one is effective. If the -j option is given without an argument, make will not limit the number of jobs that can run simultaneously.
personally, i always eliminate the -j option cuz my computer sucks (850Mhz) and i get the feeling it's best for it to not handle more than one job at a time, especially considering i'm never in a hurry... having said that, i've never actually had any problems when i've used -j3 by accident... i guess it's just a psychological thing for me...

You and me both.

I saw that. Do you know for sure if this is what is needed?

So if I'm understanding correctly, this can improve compile time on a faster processor? It seems that this is a good thing, as those who have a slower system can just change that (similar to those with non-i686 systems.

Thanks again,

no, i'm not 100% sure, i mean i didn't even know what gtkpod was until i googled it last night but mpeg4ip.net seems to be what you want... this is from the documentation page:

Quote:
lib - project wide libraries
|-> SDLAudio - Simple DirectMedia Layer(modified audio only)
|-> audio - audio format conversions
|-> avi - AVI file format

yeah, i would think so... but check this out:
Quote:
Parallel Execution

GNU make knows how to execute several commands at once. Normally, make will execute only one command at a time, waiting for it to finish before executing the next. However, the `-j' or `--jobs' option tells make to execute many commands simultaneously.

On MS-DOS, the `-j' option has no effect, since that system doesn't support multi-processing.

If the `-j' option is followed by an integer, this is the number of commands to execute at once; this is called the number of job slots. If there is nothing looking like an integer after the `-j' option, there is no limit on the number of job slots. The default number of job slots is one, which means serial execution (one thing at a time).

One unpleasant consequence of running several commands simultaneously is that output generated by the commands appears whenever each command sends it, so messages from different commands may be interspersed.

Another problem is that two processes cannot both take input from the same device; so to make sure that only one command tries to take input from the terminal at once, make will invalidate the standard input streams of all but one running command. This means that attempting to read from standard input will usually be a fatal error (a `Broken pipe' signal) for most child processes if there are several.

It is unpredictable which command will have a valid standard input stream (which will come from the terminal, or wherever you redirect the standard input of make). The first command run will always get it first, and the first command started after that one finishes will get it next, and so on.

We will change how this aspect of make works if we find a better alternative. In the mean time, you should not rely on any command using standard input at all if you are using the parallel execution feature; but if you are not using this feature, then standard input works normally in all commands.

Finally, handling recursive make invocations raises issues. For more information on this, see section Communicating Options to a Sub-make.

If a command fails (is killed by a signal or exits with a nonzero status), and errors are not ignored for that command (see section Errors in Commands), the remaining command lines to remake the same target will not be run. If a command fails and the `-k' or `--keep-going' option was not given (see section Summary of Options), make aborts execution. If make terminates for any reason (including a signal) with child processes running, it waits for them to finish before actually exiting.

When the system is heavily loaded, you will probably want to run fewer jobs than when it is lightly loaded. You can use the `-l' option to tell make to limit the number of jobs to run at once, based on the load average. The `-l' or `--max-load' option is followed by a floating-point number. For example,

-l 2.5

will not let make start more than one job if the load average is above 2.5. The `-l' option with no following number removes the load limit, if one was given with a previous `-l' option.

More precisely, when make goes to start up a job, and it already has at least one job running, it checks the current load average; if it is not lower than the limit given with `-l', make waits until the load average goes below that limit, or until all the other jobs finish.

By default, there is no load limit.
