autoslackpkg-0.7 Update Release

This is the 2nd update release (v0.7) of autoslackpkg, a SlackBuild package for Slackware Linux.

Slackware

autoslackpkg automates the use of slackpkg. The script expects to be run as the root user. It also expects specific modifications to blacklist, mkinitrd.conf, efi.conf & lilo.conf.

Extensive help screens with examples are available. To see usage help run (autoslackpkg) without options or arguments. Usage help also is displayed if there is a script option or argument error.

When run with the -h option and a valid argument (autoslackpkg -h overview | blacklist | elilo | lilo | mkinitrd) the script provides help.

When run with the -m option and a valid argument (autoslackpkg -m dialog | batch) the script runs in either dialog mode or batch mode. Dialog mode is a hands-on, interactive mode. Batch mode runs without user input.

When run with the -s option (autoslackpkg -s update | install-new | upgrade-all | clean-system | install-kernel | remove-kernel | new-config) the script only runs a specific section of the overall script.

The script maintains multiple kernels and manages EFI & LILO setups (not GRUB yet). The default boot kernel is changed to the most recent kernel. In the unlikely event the most recent kernel is not functioning properly the system can be rebooted with the previous kernel.

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:

1) slackpkg update 2) slackpkg install-new 3) slackpkg upgrade-all (see blacklist help) 4) new kernel download & installation (see blacklist help) 5) mkinitrd for new kernel (see mkitrd help) 6) EFI system new kernel management (see elilo help) 7) LILO system new kernel management (see lilo help)

Phase 2 includes:

1) slackpkg clean-system 2) EFI system old kernel management (see elilo help) 3) LILO system old kernel management (see lilo help) 4) run updatedb 5) slackpkg config-new 6) find /etc .new & .orig
