Slpkg New Slackware packaging tool


Hello to you all,

It's my first Post here.

I'm relatively new to the world of linux and for about four years only uses the distribution Slackware. I found it very interesting and I loved it immediately

So I created a little tool that facilitates the use regarding the building and installing packages.

I would be happy if you were using and tell me your opinion.

Project site: https://github.com/dslackw/slpkg

Best regards
Dimitris

Be careful though, once a slackware script has the ability to resolve dependencies, the flood of ubuntu refugees will follow, lol.

Followed by a torrent of threads asking why sudo is not working, and complaining that there is no Synaptic and Software Centre.

very funny, man...
I don't see having more Slackware users as a "problem".

Take a look at what happened to Debian.

Thank you for your kind words...

There will be some updates soon and maybe add a few more features.

Can slpkg resemble the apt-get or the yum but the Slackware is not ubuntu

When checking for updates, does it only check the version found in SLACKBUILDS.TXT or also the BUILD variable of the SlackBuild? Because if just the BUILD number of a package increased, it then would not display it as an update, or does slpkg handle this differently? (I did not check it out yet, sorry.) It does look nice, though, I especially like how it displays packages to install with version, arch and repository etc.

Hey dslackw,

Nice tool.. But I do have a problem:

Code:
root@desk:/etc# slpkg -c slack upgrade
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/slpkg", line 20, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/slpkg/main.py", line 109, in main
    patches()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/slpkg/slack/patches.py", line 27, in patches
    PACKAGE_TXT = url_read(mirrors(name='PACKAGES.TXT', location='patches/'))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/slpkg/slack/mirrors.py", line 17, in mirrors
    slack_ver(), location, name)
IndexError: tuple index out of range
root@desk:/etc# slpkg -c sbo upgrade

No such package upgrade: Not installed
I'm using slackware-14.1 (not current and 32-bit).. Am I missing something?

LOL! Not intended to be nasty laughing at your cry, but I know what you mean. I've been dog-fooding systemd et al on Jessie and don't like the taste.

Very grateful to be a customer of Pat's, I hope he (we all) can survive the next few years.

Yes, because they do not provide information on the state of the variable BUILD, file SLACKBUILDS.TXT. I will try in the future to add this feature as well.

Thank you for your interest.
