About slapt-src is a utility to make querying, retrieving, and building slackbuilds as easy as working with binary packages with slapt-get. 2. Features * Remote and local SlackBuild repository support * fast * more 3. Requirements * slapt-get * curl 4. Installation Currently slapt-src is only available via git. See http://software.jaos.org/git/slapt-src/ After unpacking, run ./autogen.sh. After the configure script is built, run the usual ./configure && make. 5. slapt-srcrc The slapt-srcrc file consists of the following keys: * SOURCE * BUILDDIR * PKGEXT * PKGTAG Refer to the slapt-src(8) man page for more on the configuration format and options. Source should point to a local or remote SlackBuild repository that contains the necessary meta data. See SLACKBUILDS.TXT below. 6. SLACKBUILDS.TXT The following script can generate the currently supported format of SLACKBUILDS.TXT. The filename and format are likely to change. #!/bin/bash set -e for sb in $(find . -name '*.SlackBuild' | sort) do name=$(basename $sb | sed -re 's/\.SlackBuild$//') location=$(dirname $sb) if [ -f $location/$name.info ]; then echo "SLACKBUILD NAME: $name" echo "SLACKBUILD LOCATION: $location" files=$(cd $location && find . -type f -printf '%P\n' | sort | xargs) echo "SLACKBUILD FILES: $files" # remove those pesky multi line listings for each interesting field TMP=$(mktemp) sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\\\n*\s*//g' $location/$name.info > $TMP DOWNLOAD=$(grep ^DOWNLOAD= $TMP | cut -f2 -d\" ) DOWNLOAD_x86_64=$(grep ^DOWNLOAD_x86_64= $TMP | cut -f2 -d\" ) MD5SUM=$(grep ^MD5SUM= $TMP | cut -f2 -d\" ) MD5SUM_x86_64=$(grep ^MD5SUM_x86_64= $TMP | cut -f2 -d\" ) VERSION=$(grep ^VERSION= $TMP | cut -f2 -d\" ) echo "SLACKBUILD VERSION: $VERSION" echo "SLACKBUILD DOWNLOAD: $DOWNLOAD" echo "SLACKBUILD DOWNLOAD_x86_64: $DOWNLOAD_x86_64" echo "SLACKBUILD MD5SUM: $MD5SUM" echo "SLACKBUILD MD5SUM_x86_64: $MD5SUM_x86_64" if [ -f $location/slack-desc ]; then SHORTDESC=$(grep ^$name: $location/slack-desc | head -n 1 | sed -re "s/^$name://") echo "SLACKBUILD SHORT DESCRIPTION: $SHORTDESC" else echo "SLACKBUILD SHORT DESCRIPTION: " fi echo rm -f $TMP fi done > SLACKBUILDS.TXT gzip -9 SLACKBUILDS.TXT -c > SLACKBUILDS.TXT.gz # END 7.
