Satellite Safety Tip #14: If you see a bright streak in the sky coming at you, duck.

mkslack - a SlackBuild generator script (C) David Woodfall 2010-2016 (C) modifications by slakmagic 2010 This slackbuild generator uses templates stored in /usr/share/mkslack/templates and a config file /etc/mkslack/mkslack.conf which you must edit for name, email, tag and a few options. Idea for use: The initial slackbuild and info file are built by this script, and when a test build/install is done and working, the files should be tweaked by hand. Especially don't forget to fill in the rest of the details in the .info. One thing to point out is that mkslack will overwrite these files if run again unless you set KEEPBACKUPS="YES" in the conf (default). This is only a starter kit! You ARE expected to edit the created files by hand afterwards to remove unnecesary parts and add extra options! Syntax: mkslack [options] archive Options: -h --help Usage. -b --build Run SlackBuild after creation. Got root? -i --install Install the package after running. -l --list Pipe archive contents to /usr/bin/most and exit. -v --version Version of mkslack. -V --ckver Check for new version. With no option set, mkslack will generate the SlackBuild and other files, print out a small message, and then quit. Config options: NAME, EMAIL as they should appear in .SlackBuild and .info TAG should be your custom tag and defaults to _SBo KEEPBACKUPS="YES|NO" up to 5 backups of .SlackBuild and other files are kept. The higher the number, the older they are. ERRORACTION="PROMPT|AUTO|EXIT" what to do on build errors. Using AUTO or answering 'y' to the prompt will have the slackbuild adjusted for man and info pages and then rebuilt. Waf scripts don't exit on a '1' return code so it scans the end of the to see if there is an unrecognised configure option (the most frequent error with waf). CLI Options: The documents list in top level of source tree can be adjusted by command: DOCS="SomeFile" mkslack archive This will add 'SomeFile' to the list. You can also edit the DOCS list in this script. Any that it doesn't find will be removed from the list. Build can be specified by: BUILD=2 mkslack archive Otherwise it defaults to 1. ARCH can be specified by: ARCH=xxx mkslack archive It defaults to whatever is set in the system, or what the SlackBuild finds or sets. TAG can also be specified.
