Hi.
Adding progress percentage in slackpkg is simpler than slackpkg+ and more complete

This is for Release 2.84.0_beta6 (commit d3632208a5b190f1c68aac3c6a36b9a7bdf6dffc)

1) add function progress that print the percentage
2) in every install-new, upgrade-all etc you have to calculate packages before than start analyze them, then count, then use them
3) a slower operation is preparing the dialog box, so you can add a progress here
4) during install/upgrade you can print the progress

Suggests:
on /etc/slackpkg/mirrors leave https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackw...are64-current/ uncommented by default since it is the official mirror and autoswitching to localized mirror, so slackpkg is ready to use.

Hello.
It's time that I fix slackpkg+ for using $ROOT since starting slackpkg 2.82.3 changed how it works applying it to $WORKDIR, $TEMP, and $TMPDIR instances.

But this commit confuse me:
Code:
commit a9c7e7d4c7d40b36965bcf8a45419c2de6d04954
Author: Robby Workman <rworkman@slackware.com>
Date:   Mon Jan 14 23:17:13 2019 -0600

    Fixup blacklist checking and appending when using alt $ROOT
    
    Thanks to dive for the report.

From code, slackpkg does not apply $ROOT to $CONF/slackpkg.conf and $CONF/mirrors, but partially apply it to $CONF/blacklist

Code:
core-functions.sh:595:  grep -vE "(^#|^[[:blank:]]*$)" ${ROOT}/${CONF}/blacklist | \
core-functions.sh:647:                                  grep -qx "${i}" ${CONF}/blacklist || LIST="$LIST $i"
core-functions.sh:1235:                 grep -qx "${i}" ${CONF}/blacklist && continue
core-functions.sh:1283: echo $SHOWLIST | tr ' ' "\n" >> ${ROOT}/${CONF}/blacklist
core-functions.sh:1286:If you want to remove those packages, edit ${CONF}/blacklist.\n"

slackpkg:469:                   grep -e "^\([a-z]\)" $CONF/blacklist | $MORECMD
it's correct that:
1) $CONF does not honor $ROOT ?
2) $CONF/blacklist does honor $ROOT ?

Well, sure, but um, REPOGREP isn't populated anywhere in stock slackpkg :-)

This is admittedly confusing, and frankly, I'm not sure I understand why we did it that way. I can at least rationalize some of it though...

Assuming we are installing to an alternate $ROOT, we want to check the altroot's blacklist (hence line 595).

It looks like 647 and 1235 were overlooked, so I'm going to fix those up.

Line 1283 is adding things to blacklist and thus it is reasonable to add them to the altroot's blacklist if $ROOT is defined.

I'll also fix up line 469 in the slackpkg script itself.

This ROOT support is fragile. :/ I wouldn't have undertaken it had it been my call, but it was already (partially) supported (but broken) for some use cases, so fixes were committed, which led to more fixes, and so on until here we are... I just hope nothing breaks as result of the changes I'm about to commit... :/

An use case for $Root is lxc

/usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-slackware

It have to been fixed since slackware current breaks it but this may be a starting point.

it seems, unfortunately, that the new modifications introduced between beta6 and beta7 actually break the lxc template (beta6 was working fine): I was testing a new version of the template (that I revised mostly last summer) with a newer version of lxc that should work fine on current

http://ponce.cc/slackware/testing/new_lxc/

seems that *forcing* $CONF under $ROOT is what break things here: $CONF in the template is used to have a temporary location, outside of the container, in which to store the template, a blacklist and a mirror configuration for the container creation.
IMHO is not essential to enforce $CONF under $ROOT as it can specified manually at the same location (CONF=/chroot/etc/slackpkg) as needed with losing no functionality.

It's reverted. I don't like the inconsistency with ROOT definitions but I'm not going to break our upstream either :-)
Unless something major comes along and/or some very trivial things occur, consider 2.84.0_beta8 to be what will hopefully become 2.84.0.

Testing "slackpkg - version 2.84.0_beta8" and it seems to be working great, thus far. Thanks for the new software and the opportunity to test it.

Only thing I've noticed is literary. In the man page, it appears that the 'onoff' function is no longer featured, yet still works like a boss:

Code:
~# slackpkg -onoff=off upgrade-all
~# slackpkg -onoff=off install-new
I use the '-onoff=off' parameter a lot. It's very useful for my 'slackpkg' requirements.

[EDIT] ^^^ This is on Slackware ARM -current btw.

Odd, I'm using "slackpkg - version 2.84.0_beta6" when we go to beta8?

'slackpkg -onoff=off upgrade-all' works here. Tested with slackpkg+ and without slackpkg+

Perhaps it be a Slackware ARM issue.

There is a hint on beta8 in post #39 by Robby...

I did something similar, except I did not use install-new

Code:
PRIORITY=( patches testing %PKGMAIN extra pasture )
Code:
# slackpkg install testing
# slackpkg upgrade testing
