Done some merging code.

Whatever caused my problems, it was fixed with installing that package (which by the way is not a Slackware conform package, it simply overwrote my configuration).

Thanks all for your good work.

Done some merging code.

First, I would say : Nice work :hattip:

I have a fix for the following issue:

In the repositories "alienbob" and "restricted", there are different versions of ffmpeg and vlc but the packages have the same version and build number.

When REPOPLUS=( .... restricted alienbob ... ) and you run "slackpkg -batch=on -default-answer=y install alienbob:vlc-2.0.6", slackpkg installs the "vlc" from "restricted" instead of "alienbob" :
Code:

slackpkg -batch=on -default_answer=y install alienbob:vlc-2.0.6

Looking for vlc-2.0.6 in package list. Please wait... DONE

vlc-2.0.6-x86_64-2alien.txz

Total package(s): 1

Do you wish to install selected packages (Y/n)? y

Now when REPOPLUS=( ... alienbob restricted ... ) and you run "slackpkg -batch=on -default_answer=y install restricted:vlc-2.0.6", slackpkg installs "vlc" from "alienbob" instead of "restricted" :

Code:

slackpkg -batch=on -default_answer=y install restricted:vlc-2.0.6

This is the consequence of two things :

1) packages data in /var/lib/slackpkg/pkglist are ordered according to REPOPLUS.

IMPORTANT:
When REPOPLUS is changed, the data in /var/lib/slackpkg/pkglist will be re-ordered at next "slackpkg update".
So, when REPOPLUS=( ... alienbob restricted ...), data about alienbob packages are found before the data about restricted packages, and vice-versa when REPOPLUS=( ... restricted alienbob ... )


2) When getpkg() - in /usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh) is called, it selects, the 1st line in ${TMPDIR}/pkglist (a copy of /var/lib/slackpkg/pkglist created at runtime) that matches the argument passed to "slackpkg install" (ex vlc):
Code:

PKGNAME=( $(grep -w -m 1 -- "${1/%.t[blxg]z/}" ${TMPDIR}/pkglist) )
This can be solved in two ways :

1) Modify the build number in the repository "alienbob" or "restricted". For instance, build number could start at "1" for "alienbob", and at "100" for "restricted". This is the simplest, but this could be a pain for Eric, I guess.

2) apply the patch in attachment and shown below to slackpkg+slackpkg+-0.9beta1-noarch-1.txz

@zerouno: Just to clarify in case it is not immediately obvious, open the slackpkg package and have a look at its install/doinst.sh (see in particular the config function and how it is used). You want to do something similar to handle the slackpkgplus.conf, which should be called slackpkgplus.conf.new within the package itself. You should also add a install/slack-desc.

zerouno 04-27-2013 04:02 PM

Sorry. slackpkgplus.conf.new was included in 0.2, but I forgot to copy in 0.9beta1

beta2 is ready.

slackpkg+-0.9beta2-noarch-1mt.txz

It re-add the doinst.sh.
It includes the phenixia2003 patch. Thankyou.

edit: beta2 include slackpkgplus.conf.new, but a removepkg of beta1 _may_ remove old slackpkgplus.conf; backup it before upgrade.

Slackpkg+ is now in rc1.

There are no changes to code, but I added new repositories and documentation (and marked it as release candidate 1 ;) )

I found a small issue, and I have a new code suggestion.

First with the issue: In slackpkgplus.conf, there's :
Code:

# If you want a multilib system, uncomment the multilib repository and set:
#PKGS_PRIORITY=( multilib:.* )
#
# List repository you want to use (defined below)
REPOPLUS=( alienbob restricted slacky ponce )

This will be ok if PKGS_PRIORITY and PRIORITY are merged when you issue a "slackpkg update" but this is not the case because of this line #17 :

Code:

if [ ! -z "$PKGS_PRIORITY" -a "$CMD" != "update" ] ; then

I guess this was to simplify the change (in green) in this post. I'm ok with that, but in this case, slackpkgplus.conf should be changed as below :

Code:

# List repository you want to use (defined below)
#
#REPOPLUS=( alienbob restricted slacky ponce )
#
# If you want a multilib system, uncomment the multilib repository and
# add its name at start of REPOPLUS like in example below :
#
#REPOPLUS=( multilib alienbob restricted slacky ponce )
#
#
# If two or more repositories contains some same packages, you can specify
# from which repository (declared in REPOPLUS) you prefer to search it.
# The syntax is "<repository_name>:<pattern>". For instance :
#
#PKGS_PRIORITY=( alienbob:openjdk )
#
# pattern can be a package name, or a regular expression, so that you can
# also give priority to all the packages to any repository declared in
# REPOPLUS. For instance, when REPOPLUS=( alienbob restricted multilib )
# and you want to prioritize the multilib, then you will add multilib:.*
# at start of PKGS_PRIORITY like as below:
#
#PKGS_PRIORITY=( multilib:.* alienbob:openjdk )
#

Another point: When REPOPLUS has been modified, the user must issue a "slackpkg update" for the changes to take effect. This should be mentioned somewhere.

----

The new code suggestion I have is for the search feature. You will find the patch for slackpkg+ rc1 in attachment. Note that "file search" is not implemented.

Here are some examples with REPOPLUS=( multilib alienbob restricted slacky ) done on a Slackware-14.0 VM :

Edit (Important) :

I found another small issue with multilib repository and install-new. The CHECKSUMS.md5 of this multilib repository contains 2 entries for each compat32 packages :
Code:

cb98e611b682d5607bef143c353e6ea1  ./slackware64-compat32/a-compat32/aaa_elflibs-compat32-14.0-x86_64-4compat32.txz

This leads "slackpkg install-new" to add all the "compat32" packages in the list of new packages. To fix this, apply the patch below to slackpkgplus.sh (0.9rc1)

Code:

#


Writting documentation (the examples) and putting the workaround "$CMD" != "update", I supposed as implicit that if a user add a repository in PKGS_PRIORITY and/or if he uncomment a MIRRORPLUS[], he will add also the repository in REPOPLUS, but in effect that may not be true.

I think that as workaround this may be sufficient:
Code:

-  REPOPLUS=${REPOPLUS[*]}
+  REPOPLUS=$(echo "${REPOPLUS[*]} ${PKGS_PRIORITY[*]} ${!MIRRORPLUS[*]}"|sed 's/ /\n/g'|sed 's/:.*//'|awk '{if(!a[$1]++)print $1}')

so if the user forgot to add a repository in REPOPLUS (I forgot that few minutes ago :) ), slackpkg+ automatically add it.

I found another small issue with multilib repository and install-new
Thankyou for fix.

zerouno 04-30-2013 08:33 AM

What do you think to add an option in slackpkgplus.conf for multilib?

similar to
[code]# Set this option to make you 64bit system a multilib system
# (install some 32bit libraries so you can launch some 32bit-only
# packages as skype, wine and other)
#COMPAT32=enable[/compat]
if COMPAT32 is set to 'enable', slackpkg+ simply autoadd multilib:.* in PKGS_PRIORITY and in REPOPLUS.
Also if COMPAT32 is set to 'enable', slackpkg+ may allow to use the 32bit-only repository

zerouno 04-30-2013 09:11 AM

rc2 is released.
slackpkg+-0.9rc2-noarch-1mt.txz

it include all fix (but comments in slackpkgplus.conf)

phenixia2003 04-30-2013 09:18 AM

Hello,

For me there's nothing to add about the multilib. This is well designed and well documented.

But, it would be a good idea to include something to notify the user to issue a "slackpkg update" when the REPOPLUS has been changed since the last "update".

I said that because I recently got some trouble to understand why slackpkg was unable to see some packages: I had added a repository into REPOPLUS but I had forgotten to issue "slackpkg update". This could be easily implemented using a simple file in /var/lib/slackpkg

zerouno 04-30-2013 09:39 AM

Yes, for now I added "# remember to launch 'slackpkg update' if you modify that row." only.
Next I will do some documentation.

      echo "Repository '$pp' not configured." >> $TMPDIR/error.log
      echo "Add:" >> $TMPDIR/error.log
      echo "MIRRORPLUS['$pp']=http://repoaddres/..." >> $TMPDIR/error.log
      echo "See documentation in /usr/doc/slackpkg+-* for details" >> $TMPDIR/error.log
      cleanup

That seems good for me. Just add a sleep (10 sec ?) after the NOTICE, so that the user will have the time to read it.

Hi,

i have installed slackpkg+ and activated only ponce current repo, running slackware64 current, i edit slackpkgplus.conf and run slackpkg update gpg and slackpkg update, but i alwys got these error
Code:

ERROR: Verification of the  gpg signature on CHECKSUMS.md5
                      failed! This could mean that the file is out of date
                      or has been tampered with.


Ideas?

regards fl0
