autoslackpkg-0.5 Official Release

This is the official release (v0.5) of autoslackpkg, a SlackBuild package for Slackware Linux.

Slackware

autoslackpkg automates the use of slackpkg. Extensive help screens with examples are available. To see autoslackpkg usage run: autoslackpkg -h

The script expects to be run as the root user. It also expects specific modifications to slackpkg.conf, mkinitrd.conf & efi.conf or lilo.conf.

If run without arguments (autoslackpkg) the script runs in interractive mode with dialog questions, dialog messages and normal output from slackpkg commands.

If run with the -b argument (autoslackpkg -b) the script runs in batch mode with minimal console feedback beyond the normal output from slackpkg commands.

The script runs in 2 Phases. If not installing a new kernel then autoslackpkg runs both Phase 1 & Phase 2 in succession. If a new kernel is installed then only Phase 1 is run & reboot is required. After reboot, rerun autoslackpkg then Phase 1 is skipped & only Phase 2 is run.

Phase 1 includes:

  • slackpkg update
  • slackpkg install-new
  • slackpkg upgrade-all (see blacklist help)
  • LXC/Docker container detection
  • new kernel download & installation (see blacklist help)
  • mkinitrd for new kernel (see mkitrd help)
  • EFI system new kernel management (see elilo help)
  • LILO system new kernel management (see lilo help)

Phase 2 includes:

  • slackpkg clean-system
  • LXC/Docker container detection
  • EFI system new kernel management (see elilo help)
  • LILO system new kernel management (see lilo help)
  • run updatedb
  • slackpkg new-config & find .orig files
