mk-slack64-multilib Presentation ============ mk-slack64-multilib is a simple script to create, from a Slackware64 tree and a multilib mirror, a Slackware64+multilib tree, and optionaly, a Slackware64+multilib ISO image. Usage ===== mk-slack64-multilib --input <slackware64-dir> --mirror <multilib-mirror-addr> [ --exclude <filename,...> ] [ --build-iso ] -i|--input <slackware64-dir> This required parameter defines the location of the pure Slackware64 tree that will be used, as source, to build the Slackware64+multilib tree. This can be, for instance, the mount point of a pure Slackware64 DVD/ISO-image. -m|--mirror <multilib-mirror-addr> This required parameter defines the location of the mirror that provides multilib packages for Slackware64. This can be : + A local directory that contains a copy, in whole or part, of a multilib mirror. Inside this directory there should be, at least the directory of the multilib-packages for the input Slackware64. For instance, 14.0/ when the input is Slackware64-14.0. + The URL of an ftp/http multilib mirror, like one of the following : http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/multilib http://scw.net.br/alien/multilib http://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-multilib http://alien.slackbook.org/multilib -x|--exclude <filename,...> This optional parameter allows to defines the files and/or directories from the pure Slackware64 tree to exclude, that must not be included into the Slackware64+multilib tree. The excluded files/directories must be given as a comma separated list of relative pathnames. For instance, to exclude the "testing" directory and the "source" from extra, the list "testing,extra/source" has to be passed in argument. To save space, the directory "/source" is automatically excluded. The files /CHECKSUMS.md5 and slackware64/CHECKSUMS.md5.asc are also excluded since the files /CHECKSUMS.md5 and slackware64/CHECKSUMS.md5 are re-computed after integration of the multilib packages. -b|--build-iso When this optional parameter is used, an ISO image will be created when the Slackware64+multilib tree is ready. Environment variables ===================== mk-slack64-multilib uses the following environment variable which can be redefined at runtime. WORKDIR ------- This environment variable defines the location of the working directory used by mk-slack64-multilib. By default, this is set to ~/mk-slack64-multilib. This can be redefined at runtime as below : WORKDIR=/my/new/location mk-slack64-multilib The structure of the working directory is as below : WORKDIR !--/multilib-data ! !--/slackware64-multilib ! !-- mk-slack64-multilib.log !-- mkisofs.log ! ! -- unofficial-slackware64-XX.Y_multilib-install-dvd.iso /multilib-data is the directory used by mk-slack64-multilib to store the multilib packages downloaded from an ftp/http multilib mirror. /slackware64-multilib is the location of the output Slackware64+multilib tree. Keep in mind that this directory is automatically cleaned each time mk-slack64-multilib is ran. mk-slack64-multilib.log is the file used by mk-slack64-multilib to log its activities. mkisofs.log is the file in which logs from mkisofs are redirected when mk-slack64-multilib is started with optional parameter --build-iso. unofficial-slackware64-XX.X_multilib-install-dvd.iso is the name of any ISO image built using by mk-slack64-multilib when started with optional parameter --build-iso. SLACKVER -------- This environment variable defines the version number of the pure Slackware64 used to build the multilib tree. Defaults to "auto" which means the script must auto-detect this information. However, in case of Slackware64-current, this must be redefined at runtime, otherwise, mk-slack64-multilib could integrate the wrong version of the multilib packages. So, in that case, SLACKVER must be specified at runtime as below : $ SLACKVER=current mk-slack64-multilib ... LAYER32_SERIE ------------- This environment variable defines the serie in which the 32-bit multilib packages will be integrated. Defaults to "l", which means that all of 32-bit multilib packages will be integrated into the serie "l" of the Slackware64+multilib tree. When set to "native", the 32-bit multilib packages will be integrated according to their respective series. This mean that the 32-bit multilib packages from serie "a" will be integrated into the serie "a" of the Slackware64+multilib tree, the 32-bit multilib packages from serie "ap" will be integrated into the serie "ap" of the Slackware64+multilib tree, and so on ... ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS ----------------- This environment variable allows to control integration of 3rd party tools compat32pkg, multilibpkg and slackpkg+ into the serie "ap" of Slackware64+multilib tree. To include all these tools, this must be set to "all". To include compat32pkg and multilibpkg only, this must be set to "dedicated". To include slackpkg+ only, this must be set to "slackpkg+". To fully disable integration of 3rd party tools, this must be set to "off". Default to "all". README.multilib =============== mk-slack64-multilib adds the file README.multilib at the root of the Slackware64+multilib tree. Integration of 3rd party tools compat32pkg, multilibpkg and slackpkg+ ===================================================================== To help user to keep the multilib packages up to date, mk-slack64-multilib automatically adds 3rd party tools compat32pkg, multilibpkg and slackpkg+ into the serie "ap" of Slackware64+multilib tree. This can be changed at runtime through the variable ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS which can be set to "all", "dedicated", "slackpkg+", or "off". For instance, to only integrate slackpkg+, mk-slackpkg-multilib must be run as below : $ ADD_3RDPARTYTOOLS=slackpkg+ mk-slack64-multilib ... Updated files ============= mk-slack64-multilib automatically updates the "tagfile" and rebuilds the "maketag" and "maketag.ez" of all series in which packages have been integrated. Sample usage ============ Before using mk-slack64-multilib, you need to have a pure Slackware64 tree available. The simplest is to use a pre-mounted Slackware64 DVD or an ISO image : $ mount /path/to/slackware-iso-image /mnt/slackiso Once this is done, you can launch mk-slack64-multilib as below : $ mk-slack64-multilib --input /mnt/slackiso \ --mirror http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib \ --build-iso In the example below, mk-slack64-multilib will use the pure Slackware64 tree in /mnt/slackiso and the multilib-mirror given in argument of the parameter --mirror, to build a Slackware64+multilib tree. Furthermore, once the multilib tree will be ready, an ISO image is generated, since the optional parameter --build-iso is used. + The multilib from the given mirror will be stored into the directory ~/mk-slack64-multilib/multilib-data + The Slackware64+multilib tree will be stored into the directory ~/mk-slack64-multilib/slackware64-multilib + The output ISO image will be stored into the directory ~/mk-slack64-multilib with the name unofficial-slackware64-XX.Y_multilib-install-dvd.iso.
