Question sbopkg and packages outside of SBo


This is more like a suggestion... Is it possible to make sbopkg aware of packages that were installed from a source other than SlackBuilds.org? Can sbopkg be made to 'see' packages with an extension different from "_SBo"?

For example, I install MSB and then I want to install gbgoffice from SBo. This is the queue:

mm-common
libsigc++
glibmm
cairomm
pangomm
atkmm
gtkmm
gbgoffice

Although all dependencies are already satisfied by MSB, sbopkg will list them as not installed. Is there a way around this?

I just had the same question when looking to install Blender. The only recognized packages by SBopkg were the ones it had installed. But then in the Slackware Philosophy...we are responsible for our system's including management of dependencies. So when I use SBopkg and a package AND the queue I also use a slackpkg search <file-name> and ls /var/log/packages | grep <file-name> before approving the queue build and install. That way I can check both official packages and other packages I may have installed individually. If you aren't using SBopkg queue you probably should. The only draw back to the queue is that after selecting individual programs to install, you have to customize the .Slackbuild, .info, or package build instructions before adding to the queue.

Hope this helps.

Remember the basic - you are responsible for your system and Slackware philosophy is not to have dependency resolution has part of any package installer. That responsibility means you read the documentation and README for the package before starting and installation. Not remembering the basic and instead trying to use SBopkg queue files as a dependency resolver, will result in having official files replaced by SBo packages and possible breakage of other packages you've installed on YOUR system.
