PostPosted: Tue 12 Feb 2013, 09:37    Post_subject: Pkg 0.9.1
Sub_title: cmd line pkg manager
 

Pkg 0.9.1 - cmd line pkg manager

Bugfix release. Even if no one wants it Wink

*Currently* this cannot work on a woof based system.
It also therefore, does not work with ubuntu/debian repos with subdirs (/pool/c/cmus/PGKNAME)...
But that will change in the future..

Another current limitation is that only the repo currently in use will be searched for anything... I need to make it search all available repos at various points...

Changelog, #110213, ver 0.9.1:
- fixed auto enable of TAB completion, also updated stuff in /etc..
- fixed --force --uninstall-all,..
- fixed --force --install-all,..
- added --deps-all.. check all installed pkgs and install any missing deps
- added --list-repos.. now search for and list available repos
- fixes for missing repos.. default to akita
- fixed find files and dirs outside WORKDIR..
- added new repos, can use if found..
- added net_check() for downloads, repo updates + convert..
- fixed pkg -n.. faster..
- download pkg fixes in pet2sfs(), deb2pet(),pet2tgz() ..
- each repo sets the pkg exension ($EX)..
- convert a new (woof) format repofile to the old pre-woof format (wont work with ubuntu/debian/other-subdir-using-repo... yet...
- the --deb2* and --pet2* options can now take any file or valid PKGNAME (pkg found in repo)
- fixes in terminal output, and more...

Examples:

pkg -r noarch <-- set to noarch repo
pkg -g pupradio <-- install the latest pupradio

pkg -ps pupradio <-- check the status of pupradio

pkg -a -ua <--- will ask to uninstall each installed package individually

pkg -ea <-- download ALL missing deps of ALL pkgs

pkg -lr <-- list available repos
pkg -r wary51x <-- set to wary5OLD repo

pkg --pet2sfs skype_static-2.1.0.81 <-- download and convert skype

Example1, shows time taken (43 secs) to complete the above command:
Code:
# time pkg --pet2sfs skype_static-2.1.0.81
Download the package: skype_static-2.1.0.81?  (y/n):
Downloading to /root/pkg/skype_static-2.1.0.81.pet. Please wait: 100%
Please wait... building SFS file..
Created '/root/pkg/skype_static-2.1.0.81.sfs' ( 27 MB )

real    0m42.902s
user    0m4.032s
sys     0m0.576s
and then I have a skype SFS, didn't have to do anything Smile

Example2: lets download tixati and deps, combine into 1 pkg, and convert to an sfs:

Code:
# time pkg --force --get tixati
Installing tixati..
Download the package: tixati-1.91?  (y/n):
Downloading to /root/pkg/tixati-1.91.pet. Please wait: 100%
Install the package: tixati-1.91?  (y/n):
Package 'tixati-1.91' installed.
Download the missing dependencies?  (y/n):
Downloading dependencies: dbus-glib..
Download the package: dbus-glib-0.82-akita?  (y/n):
Downloading to /root/pkg/dbus-glib-0.82-akita.pet. Please wait: 100%
Install the package: dbus-glib-0.82-akita?  (y/n):
Package 'dbus-glib-0.82-akita' installed.

real    0m24.433s
user    0m1.276s
sys     0m0.520s
Code:
# time pkg --pkg-combine tixati-1.91
Combining tixati-1.91.pet and its dependencies..
Fetching dependencies...
Adding dependencies: dbus-glib..
Creating .pet package..
Package 'tixati-1.91-full' (md5: 2bf0ac109450e3b06182321234eb83af) created in: /root/pkg/
Install with the command:  'pkg -i tixati-1.91-full'

real    0m3.933s
user    0m3.656s
sys     0m0.248s
Code:
# time pkg --pet2sfs tixati-1.91-full
Please wait... building SFS file..
Created '/root/pkg/tixati-1.91-full.sfs' ( 15 MB )

real    0m8.988s
user    0m8.721s
sys     0m0.208s
... that took 3 commands and just under 40 seconds (mostly download time!)... Without the --force option, anything already downloaded is not downloaded again.


To get this working on newer Puppy versions, you'd need to:

- support searching of woof format repo files... then..
- if woof format found in $REPOFILE, get pkg info as usual, inc subdir..
- update the download() func to support repos with pkgs in subdirs.. then..
- update the install() func to extract .deb, .tgz, .txz, .pkg.tar.gz, etc..
- and thats it i think..

Hello sc0ttman,

I am building a PC from scratch. When I get it done, I am right away installing Akita because the hardware in it will be old enough to run it.

EDIT: Also, Akita is my favorite Pup. That is another reason why I will be using it.

Thanks guys glad you like it... I might finally have a go at compiling a new kernel one day, I'm sure it's not that hard... As long as I completely copy someone elses settings who knows what they're doing... Would make sens to compile the kernel that wary 51x used I guess...

PostPosted: Thu 14 Feb 2013, 12:49    Post_subject: Pkg 0.9.something...  

Pkg 0.9.4 - cmd line pkg manager

..important new features options added.. plus bugfixes...

- set search for pkgs only in current repo, or all repos
- set search for deps in current repo or all
- repo fall-backs: if search for pkg/dep failed, fall back to next best repo until found..
- set ignore repo fall-back lists and get latest dep/package from ANY repo

Changelog:

1. now supports search all repos or only current repo with --repo-pkg-scope, --repo-dep-scope (affects TAB completion, --get, --download, --get-deps, etc)

pkg --set-repo akita
pkg --repo-pkg-scope all <-- search all repos, not just akita repoe
pkg -g freecell <-- should find something not in akita repo

2. supports fallback lists for each repo:

Pkg will search the current repo for PKG, if nothing found, will go to the next repo, and so on... defined at end of lines in '~/pkg/.pkg/sources-all'.. Each repo has its own unique fallback list.. This list gives the order to use when a search fails, and pkg 'falls back' to the next available repo... For example:

Akita="noarch common quirky wary51x wary53x dpup puppy4 slacko lucid puppy3 puppy2 slacko14"
Slacko="slacko14 noarch common wary53x wary51x akita quirky puppy4 puppy3 puppy2"

NOTE: these fallback lists are currently not complete or finished...

3. support disable repo fallbacks with `pkg --bleeding-edge on`

This will return the latest version of PKG from ANY repo, ignoring the fall-back order above...


4. I also added a `pkg --help-all|-H` option which extra help info...

5. I also gave parts of the code a much needed re-think and clean up.. mosty to do with the rcfile and settings repos, sources, etc..

6. support for URL mirrors is almost done, just needs fully implementing..



NOTE: This .pet below is ideally for Akita, but will work on any pre-woof puppy, and comes with some extra repos pre-setup to work, inc: noarch, common, lucid, slacko, slacko14, etc

Please upload your woof format 'Packages-puppy-*' files here, and I can convert them and add them to Pkg... Also including Packages-ubuntu-* and Packages-debian-*, as Pkg cannot yet handle the subdirs, but will soon....

scottman keep up the good work you really got somethin goin with akita
running awsome on old p3 box with nvidia gf5 video card ! like i said i am gonna try some things like a diff kernel i think if it ran on some more recent hardware it would be a plus ! but i also firmly belive that maintaining the old hardware is a must ! 2 versions would be great 1 for old hardware and 1 for a little more recent hardware ! i must say that this is really a great puppy cant wait to see how far you can take it ! keep up the good work and thank you ! Very Happy

PostPosted: Thu 14 Feb 2013, 16:10    Post_subject: Pkg 0.9.5  

Pkg 0.9.5

Changelog:

- added support for multiple repo URLs (mirrors)
- support for 4 mirrors for each repo (in file ~/pkg/.pkg/sources-all)
- in pkg_download() func, Pkg now pings each repo mirror in turn, and if working, uses it.
- the first URL is used if working, or 2nd, and so on.. so put fastest mirrors first in the 'sources-all' file!
- fixes for check_net func, fixes for calling it
- fixed the errors when you input any bad options

NOTE: the default mirror for all repos (that I know of and added), is the nluug one, as its way faster than ibiblio..

Full help info ( pkg -H ) below:

Code:
------ Pkg 0.9.5 ------
         
'Pkg' is a package manager: use it to find, download & install software packages from
a variety of online sources. Pkg can also help you convert packages, build tar archives,
combine packages, analyse dependencies, and more.

You can use Pkg in the console or terminal, using TAB completion to complete package
names from either the current repo, or all repos, depending on your settings,

All files are downloaded to /root/pkg/, and all files that have been converted end up there as
well. You should ideally move any packages you create to another directory.

Settings for this program are inside the hidden folder '/root/pkg/.pkg/', which holds the info
of the current repo. This lets you limit searches to that repo only.

By default, 'Pkg' wil search only the current repository unless told to do otherwise.

'Pkg' keeps a list of 'sources'  -all the available repos on your system. You can update your
sources if they change, or add more. Your 'sources' are in '/root/.packages/', and are
named 'Packages-puppy-*' or 'livepackages*.txt'

Here are the command line options you can pass to Pkg, with examples at the end.


Usage: pkg [OPTION(S)]

These two options can be used together and MUST precede all other options:
 
  --ask|-a             ask before fetching & installing pkgs/deps (give as 1st option)
  --force |-f            force downloading, installing and uninstalling, no matter what

These options can be used with --ask and --force, but can't be used with each other:
 
  --get|-g PKGNAME         find, download and install the latest matching package and deps
  --download|-d PKGNAME         download the package from an online repo, if found
  --install|-i PKGNAME         install a local pet package

  --uninstall-all|-ua         uninstall all installed packages
  --delete|-l PKGNAME         delete a downloaded package
  --delete-all|-la          delete ALL downloaded pet packages!
 
 The following options cannot be used with any others:
 
  --all               list all details of all packages in the CURRENT repo
  --search|-s [SEARCH]         find package info in the CURRENT repo, including category, deps, etc..
  --search-all|-sa [SEARCH]      find package info in ALL repos, including category, deps, etc..

  --names-exact|-ne [PKGNAME]      list all EXACT packages matches in the CURRENT repo
  --names-exact-all|-nea [PKGNAME]   list all EXACT packages matches in ALL repos
  --list-downloaded|-ld [PKGNAME]   list all downloaded packages, pkg name is an optional filter
  --list-installed|-li [PKGNAME]   list all installed packages, pkg name is an optional filter

  --pkg-combine|-pc PKGNAME      build a new package containing PKGNAME + dependencies
  --pkg-status|-ps PKGNAME      print the status of a pkg (name, size, deps, installed or not)
  --pkg-installed|-pi PKGNAME      return true if the package is installed, false if not

  --update-repo|-ur         add the latest available packages to the akita repo
  --convert-repo|-cr         convert a Pet-packages-* or livepackages*.txt file to pre/post woof format
  --add-source            add a new repo to your list of available repos (requires relvant repo file /root/.packages/)
  --update-sources         re-check all available repos and update the list
  --repo-pkg-scope one|all      search for packages in either the current repo only (one), or all repos (all)
  --repo-dep-scope one|all      search for package dependencies in either the current repo (one), or all repos (all)
  --bleeding-edge no|yes      if 'no', check for pkg/deps in current repo, then use fallback list (default).. if 'yes', get latest pkgs from ANY repo

  --help|-h            show this help information
  --help-all|-H            show a full description, plus this help information  as well

Note: With online repositories, you don't need to give the .pet file extension:
 
  pkg -n SEARCH            list all pkg names in the current repo matching SEARCH
  pkg -a -g filezilla         ask to download latest filezilla and ask to get all deps
  pkg -a -la            ask to delete all downloaded packages
  pkg -a -e PKGNAME         install all deps of PKGNAME, ask each time

  pkg -e PKGNAME         install all deps of PKGNAME, dont ask anything
  pkg -d qupzilla-1.3.1         download qupzilla-1.3.1 without asking
  pkg -l qupzilla-1.3.1         delete the downloaded qupzilla-1.3.1

Note: To install or convert local packages or folders, you must give the path (and filename):

  pkg --dir2sfs /path/to/dir/      convert a local directory to a .sfs package
  pkg -i /path/to/file.pet      install the given pet package.. include the .pet extension!
  pkg --tgz2pet /path/to/file.tar.gz   convert a local .tar.gz file to .pet package

  If using --pet2sfs, --pet2tgz or --deb2pet, you  can also give a valid PKGNAME,
  and it'll be downloaded if needed, before being converted.

Note: If the package is 'downloaded' (in /root/pkg), you won't need to give the path,
only the filename. To check if PKGNAME is downloaded, just enter:

  pkg -ld PKGNAME

Hi Scottman, first time with Akita. Manual frugal install. M processor, 250Ram, and so far doing everything I've asked of it... installed Chrome and Opera, Sylpheed.

One problem, how do I get a volume control on the task bar in jwm?? I can't figure it out. (Not too bright).

Thanks for this, enjoying it. I can see you've put a lot into it.

Thanks, glad you like it... I did put a lot of time into Akita, but its my one and only OS, so I upgrade it as needed/desired...

Use 'Retrovol'... in Menu->Multimedia->Media ..

You can make it startup at every boot using the 'Startups' tool, in Menu->System->Schedule ... This tool can help you choose what you want to startup each boot...

Note: you can also do all this from the "Akita Setup" program that loads up at first boot - just click on 'sound settings', and on 'startups'...

Yeah, I do like it. And I like it even more now I have a volume control. Very Happy I should have looked harder. Looking good. Thanks for the quick reply.

I'd be delighted if you got OpenGL working in that build... It's the only thing I seem to have problems with when I make a version with a newer kernel - the DRI/OpenGL stuff usually never works... I specifically chose a wary kernel that already had nvidia and ati drivers compiled for it, but still no go... If yours has working OpenGL I'd love to know how you did it...

EDIT: If you upload your build somewhere, or each of the steps you took to build it, I'd like to test it myself actually...

Hello sc0ttman Very Happy
Are you using a Woof build of your own, or the latest Woof2?
I need to know this because if it's the first, Akita would need its own langpack made from scratch, but if it's the second, the current langpacks can be used in Akita.
