[ANN] mk-slack64-multilib 1.1.130919 released


Hello,

As a reminder, mk-slack64-multilib is a simple script to create slackware64+multilib tree/iso.

This maintenance release :
  • fixes a silly bug () when the multilib mirror is updated
  • gives more choice to the user about the 3rd party tools to include into the slackware+multilib tree. Now the environment variable ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS can be set to "all", "dedicated", "slackpkg+", or "off"

=> When set to all (the default), the tools compat32pkg, multilibpkg and slackpkg+ are included into the serie AP

=> When set to dedicated only the tools compat32pkg and multilibpkg are included into the serie AP

=> When set to slackpkg+ only the tool slackpkg+ is included into the serie AP

For instance, to create a slackware64-14.0+multilib iso with the tools compat32pkg and multilibpkg using the original dvd, you will have to proceed as below :

Code:
$ mount /media/dvd

$ ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS=dedicated mk-slack64-multilib --input /media/dvd --mirror http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib --build-iso
mk-slack64-multilib autodetect the version of the source slackware64-tree ... unless in case of slackware64-current. In this case you will have to supply the version on the command line using the environment variable SLACKVER.

For instance, to create a slackware64-current+multilib iso with the tool slackpkg+, using the latest slackware64-current iso, you will have to proceed as below :

Code:
$ mount -o loop,ro /path/to/slackware64-current.iso /mnt/slack64iso

SLACKVER=current ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS=slackpkg+ mk-slack64-multilib --input /mnt/slack64iso --mirror http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib --build-iso
mk-slack64-multilib is available at sourceforge.net and you can get the latest version using this direct link.

Cheers

This sounds like a great idea. I think that for 14.1 I'll definitely take a better look at it. Now that the Slack install DVD no longer has space issues (source moved elsewhere), it might be prudent to get the multi-lib stuff pulled in as a standard part of the 64-bit release. (that's a not-so-well-hidden request :-). Would make life much easier.

That request has been discussed to death...
It is not going to happen. Slackware64 is and will remain a pure 64-bit OS. Multilib for Slackware64 is and will be available as 3rd-party add-on, and provided through my own repository.

No harm in asking :-).... Thanks for the direct answer. Even more good reason to use mk-slack64-multilib and make sure it works as advertised.
