slackpkg+ (slackpkgplus) creates glitch with slackpkg installing full package series


I'm not sure if the author/maintainer of slackpkg+ frequents LQ, but I'm encountering a glitch when I have slackpkg+ installed, whereby slackpkg stops being able to install full package series (a, xap, xfce, etc.). Strangely, I can still remove full package series with slackpkg installed.

I recently noticed this when trying to run slackpkg install xfce; it did not select packages from the 'xfce' series, but rather, only matched packages with the string 'xfce' therein. So, eg, Thunar, etc. were not selected.

Uninstalling slackpkg+ got it to start working again.

Strangely, slackpkg uninstall xfce does select all packages in the 'xfce' package series for removal, with or without slackpkg+ installed.

Here are my config files for ease of reference:

Code:
$ ls /var/log/packages/slackpkg* |cat
/var/log/packages/slackpkg+-1.7.0-noarch-8mt
/var/log/packages/slackpkg-2.83.0-noarch-3

It doesn't look like this patch has been committed upstream. I'll try it out though! Thanks.

Yes, I frequent LQ but not all days, so I can delay or miss to read some topic. The best way to report slackpkg+ is to write to the official topic

Instead to uninstall you can also try with temporary disable slackpkg+:
Code:
# SLACKPKGPLUS=off slackpkg install ....

At time I was very busy; after that probably I forgot it.

I will add it in the next release, but I don't know when I will release it

Thanks so much. Slackpkg+ is a difficult keyword to search for within the LQ infrastructure, plus the official thread is not stickied, so I wasn't aware of its existence.
