any tool like pkgtool2 exists for simple packaging

I have used pkgtool2 [from Slackware]
and know enough to get by with making TGZ out of a tree
and some about making RPMs

if there a tool in the works for simplfying package building ?


Off to using Peanut and Slackware, no hard feelings but I need my CD to burn, PDA and scanner to connect and arch won't do it.

You're posting in the forum about it ~_~

It's called makepkg.

Check the manpage and the online documentation on it.

i dont know pkgtool2 really good (only tried once) ... but i built rpm's --- this is torture compared to makepkg (with namcap)

makepkg takes maybe longer in the beginning ... with your first PKGBUILD created you start having a nice collection of PKGBUILD.templates and after some built packages you know how to build others fast

and makepkg has a great advantage: once you have a textfile (PKGBUILD) you can build the package really easy ... also when the version changes or something else

the only thing you have to have when using makepkg: have an editor you really like and you are able to work fast with ... nothing else is needed (well, an internet-connection for downloading the sources wink )


The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
