> Hi everyone, just to let you know about this project:
> As the title says is a set of tools to help you in your daily use of SBo.
> I've been using them without any issue and i think its time that
> others can use them so any bug, issue or opinion is welcome.
> And BTW, sorry for the lack of documentation but as a quick intro:
> As root you can:
> 1) Synchronize a local repository with SBo's one:
> # sbo_sync
> sbo_sync: rsync:://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/13.37 =>
> /usr/ports/13.37 receiving incremental file list
> total size is 24.31M speedup is 58.28
> sbo_sync: done
> 2) Find a package that you are interesting, let's say cmus:
> # sbo_find cmus
> 3) Build cmus:
> # sbo_pkg /usr/ports/13.37/audio/cmus
> sbo_pkg: Changing working directory /usr/ports/13.37/audio/cmus
> sbo_pkg: Downloading
> sbo_pkg: Checking MD5 message digest
> cmus-v2.4.3.tar.bz2: OK
> sbo_pkg: Executing cmus.SlackBuild
> Slackware package /tmp/cmus-v2.4.3-i686-1_hba.txz created.
> sbo_pkg: done
> 4) Install the package, as normal:
> # installpkg /tmp/cmus-v2.4.3-i686-1_hba.txz
Thanks, Antonio, I'm really enjoying this so far. As others have mentioned
already, sbopkg exists and I myself do use it often and I love it, but
sbo_tools is slick! Lightweight and simple, with "simple" enough code for me
to be able to make little changes. Thanks!
