Package build system & packaging rules

Post by thenktor » 10. Jun 2009, 10:00

We'll use slkbuild as package build system. It is a fork of the well known buildpkg, that is available in Zenwalk.
Package will be available at:
http://pnboy.pinguix.com/gapan/slkbuild/

We'll use the same packaging rules as in Zenwalk.
Lets just only change the package versioning in slackware fashion. Instead of:
$pkgname-$pkgver-$arch-$zenver.$pkgrel.txz
we use
$pkgname-$pkgver-$arch-$pkgrelxy.txz
where xy are your initials. When we come up with a name, maybe we can put initials for that there instead.

However, it should be OK, if someone wants to use his own handcrafted buildscripts/slackbuilds for creating packages. As long as the packages will follow packaging rules, there should be no problem.

But slkbuild should be preferred for better consistancy ;)
