Rats! The dreaded feature that is a bug thing. Hate when that happens.
Been using that bug of a feature since "Thu Jan 3 12:32:53 CET 2019" or thereabouts.
I've gotten quite used to that bug, it is going to be hard to reprogram my fingers.
Oh well. Moving on... Were there is a will there is a way. Alias!

Still say slackpkg+ is the greatest thing since sliced bread!

Maraming salamat po!

A 'greylist' question.

Quote:
# Also you may want to greylist ALL slackpkgplus repository;
# useful if you want to run slackpkg install alienbob and select
# only the wanted package (instead de-select all unwanted):
#SLACKPKGPLUS_.*
I have already figure out 'SLACKPKGPLUS_.alienbob' does not work.
Both of these do:
'alienbob'
'SLACKPKGPLUS_alienbob'

Which is the correct way to greylist only one repository?

Reason: alienbob has a boat load (Preparing list [203/344]) of packages, when using 'slackpkg install'.

Both should work but SLACKPKGPLUS_alienbob should be most secure.

However I will do some changes (I don't know what or when) in greylist since slackpkg 2.84 did some changes in blacklist.

I'm running slackpkg+-1.7.0d1-noarch-7mt. I tested it only with the normal
routine 'slackpkg install-new|upgrade-all|clean-system'.
It is working ok, I didn't get any error messages or problem when installing,
upgrading or removing.

The new progress indicator is very nice. The spinning bar is nice too and
traditional, but the percentage indicator gives a better information about
what is happening, also the packages counter.
These are nice additions thanks (and terse output too).

There is a problem with the percentage indicator when running
'slackpkg install-new', I think it is showing the packages number instead.
It is in the attached image.
Another thing, this is just cosmetic, could be nice to hide the cursor while
showing percentage indicator, maybe with 'tput civis' and put it back with
'tput cnorm'.

Thankyou for testing.

install-new (as install, upgrade, remove) in slackpkg+ can't know how many packages to analize.

Terse output was added to pkgtools ; it is not a slackpkg+ feature (I just added the option to slackpkg+ configuration file)
Code:
# export TERSE=0
# SLACKPKGPLUS=off slackpkg upgrade-all
and you will have the terse output.

tput is a reason for which I dislike the spinning. tput can create some inconsistence in terminal output in some circumstance. To make slackpkg+ working with spinning correctly I had to write some porkaround .

slackpkg - version 2.84.0_beta6 / slackpkg+ 1.7.0d1

Hehe, I miss that spinner thingy, really I do....

Can you give us an option to bring it back?

Nah, just kidding. On the bringing it back part. Improvise, Adapt, Overcome

Thanks for the great job on this.

Testing it on two of my machines, all working well.

Yes, that fixed it 'install-new' now has a percentage indicator.
But it goes up to 55% not 100%, is this right? Maybe because there isn't
any new 'Added' package to make the list to install.

No. The counter should start before the packages database check.
My tests reach 100%
Tomorrow I will tell you some test to do.
bash -x slackpkg install-new 2>slackpkg.txt
may help the analysis.

I've been following along with this, saw the same. Downloaded the updated versions of slackpkgplus.sh. Tested with no "Added." packages and with "Added." packages, it now goes to 100%.

It's working I'm running the rworkman's slackpkg beta
and slackpkg+ dev is working ok.

edit- I didn't run with packages for upgrade, remove or install,
but I think it will work ok with new changes in the ChangeLog.

A little confused... Is there an official new release of slackpkg+ out or is it still being tested?
Sorry for being such a newb
