Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby Lightning » Tue Sep 28, 2004 7:54 pm

This is an update to the previous packager. The new features include, automatic generation of a packages uninstall script. The autogenerated uninstall script will also span multiple tgz files for ram drive package. Automatic detection and logging of all required libraries needed for a package, Automatric detection and install script modification if this library is included in the /pkg/lib directory. So there is no need to make other scripting changes for The install/rc_ scripts can be generated with or without help text for advanced packagers who don't want to have to spend time deleting comments in the scripts.

For those who don't know what the packager actually does. It is a tool for creating or modifying your own FREESCO 03x packages or other FREESCO packages that you want to customize. The packager will create the proper directory structure as well as the install/rc_ scripts. You then can place all of the needed files into this directory structure and run the packager again and it will make a compressed tar archine of your package and fill in the install script with the relevant information about your package. The packager is not intended to help develope packages, but instead to simplify the effort involved to create one.

The packager is NOT a package for FREESCO as it is just a compressed tar achive that can be installed and run on any lib5 Linux system as well as on FREESCO.
