How to create auto compile for salix packages on ubuntu? I would like to create auto compiler who will constantly build packages an put it on mirror for our community.Is there a posibility for that on non salix or slackware systems? How is this used for main auto build package systems?

Nothing like that is going to work. Salix packages need to be built and run on Slackware / Salix.

Actually, you could do Salix chroots in almost any distribution. You only need to have a somewhat recent kernel in the host distribution and to install spkg. I haven't tested it with any other distributions, but salix-chroot-install should work, as long as spkg is installed:

You can extract the spkg binary from the salix packages and put it in your host distributions /usr/local/bin I guess. After that you can use salix-chroot-install to install salix somewhere in your HD according to the instructions.

After you have set up everything, if you want to build lots of packages, I guess you could just make a list of them in a file and then run something like:

Code: Select all

for i in `cat LIST`; do spi -i $i; done
Of course, a more isolated solution could be using a Salix VM.

gapan, it's amazing you can do that :)

chmuri, I don't fully understand what you're intending to do. Why the need to constantly rebuild the packages? Can't you just sync to the Salix / Slackware repositories (for security updates)? Or just host a mirror?
