First slackbuild ever: Gerbera, fork of Mediatomb for current


Folling suggestion of Baasmadrigal in this thread i surpisingly succeeded to create a slackbuild script for Gerbera fork

the first thing that motivate me was the use of JS support in gerbera to tweak file folders.

I have created my first git to share this script on Sourceforge

If anyone wants to share advises it's more than welcome.

Awesome! I am unable to download tar.gz files at work to check it out, but I would recommend submitting this to SBo so others can easily benefit from your work.

Check out SBo's submission page for details.

If it's for -current, then it will have to wait until 15.0 repo is available.
Unless it's tested under 14.2

It's not tested on 14.2, i only have current installed actually, the slackbuild submission page is a good source of informations anyway.

There still few things that i use in the script that i don't fully understand.
A warning about the man page potentially not gziped.
Not shure i use the correct approach for the source folder in /tmp/SBo/package-gerbera/gerbera, i delete this folder at the end before creating the package.

Do you think Duktape is a good candidate for a package ? installing Duktape as a shared library was the part that take me the most of time, finding information about shared library was erratic. Do you know a good source of reading about shared library in Slackware ?

I have written a Slackbuild script for Duktape, it is available on Sourceforge

If you already installed from source, you can install again from the Slackbuild script it will overwrite it.
