Please Suggest.....
I'm not sure what to suggest without knowing how your program handles repos. If you look at slackpkg for an example, it has you list the specific repo containing the specific versions of programs you want (so you'd list a repo for 64bit 14.2). And it lets you set priority of mirrors. See this blog entry by Alien Bob for more details.

Regular slackpkg has support for the various additional folders in a stock mirror that may contain files like extra/, patches/, pasture/, and testing/. This allows you to place priority of one specific repo, like testing/ over patches/, if you want to ensure you don't accidentally overwrite packages.

You could even add a list where you can prioritize certain packages with certain repos, like if you want to use the alsa-only versions out of extra/, but don't want any other programs in there, you could have extra/ as a lower priority than the main repo (and patches) and only specify certain packages and the repos you'd like to prioritize them from.

There's lots of ways to handle it, you just need to decide how you want to. Depending on how it is handled may determine whether it is a useful program for many or only a few.

Please check.

Thanks for trying the package and reporting the issue.

I am working on it.
During the development I found that, NOT all repositories follow the official Slackware repository similar structure because of this reason I have not implemented priority to sub-branches. I want to handle all the repository in same way.
But each repository had assigned different priority.

Thanks

Slackers,

I am working complete priority based package management tool plus multilib functionality and which will also work with the alien repository.

Please check the above configuration changes.

As per above changes I am successfully able to collect the repository data, It means attitude update command.

In order to work with alien multiple repositories I have added IDNUM configuration.

To enable multilib functionality I have configured alien repository two time one with alien tag and another with compat32 tag.

I am also working on priority assignment for sub-braches so that It will better work with Slackware official repositories.

I trying to implement complete priority based tools. It means as per priority packages get selected for upgrade.
If priority get changed then package will be upgraded from another package source.

It will completely changes the code.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks

Slackers,

I am thinking about handling alien multiple repository as extend branches.
And allow override using preference rules which are added into package information which stored in /var/log/packages.

Thanks

Slackers,

There is an update, call for testing.
Please check for update(Slack) attitude.

Recently I have added multilib functionality, and added support for aliens multiple repository which having same TAG.
Added priority handling for different branches in Slackware official repository structure.


NOTE : This is completely priority based system.

To verify, change the SOURCE PRIORITY and run upgrade-all command.
Packages get selected as per new configuration.

Few changes in configuration file:
added IDNUM= field to identify multiple repository those uses same tags.
For proper functioning, never changes this field after assignment.
Any interger number can be used for this field.
I used configuration file inode number for this field.

And for multilib functionality, added ARCH= field.

This new release uses gdbm for maintaining package information.
Now this tool uses two databases one is text file and gdbm database (which are imported from text files).
New functionality works on gdbm database.
I am working on to remove text file functionality.

Now kernel packages are selected to INSTALL (NOT UPGRADE) in upgrade-all command.

As per recent changes use .x86 suffix to install 32 bit packages on 64 bit system.
for example:

Quote:
attitude install less.x86
This is alpha release, so few messages are enabled for testing purpose.


Here is my attitude repolist output:

Just now I finished the search and file-search implementation, but browse is broken (I am working on it).

Call for testing.

Suggestions and feedback is welcome.

Slackers,

NOW Logging in enabled.

By default LOG_USER and LOG_INFO is used for syslogd logging.
And /var/log/attitude.log file used to store local loggs.

Thanks
