[SOLVED] pkgfile list for private/unofficial repository

Hi all,

a quick search in the wiki/our friend G didn't raise anything of interest.

Does someone know if there is a simple command/script to build the '.files' file for a binary package repository, such as the ones downloaded by `pkgfile --update`?

I'm trying to maintain a binary repo (http://archlinuxgis.github.com/), but I'm always puzzled when I see my pkgfile crying because it cannot download that file.

Thanks in advance.

Use repo-add -f (and read its man page)

Thanks Pierre.

The only thing I should add is that I needed to create manually a symlink with the '.files' extension to the main db file.

You may find repo-add_and_sign useful for maintaining such a repo.

Maybe, but doubtful, since it was over two years ago and the OP hasn't posted here in well over a year.

Ha, missed the necrobump. Maybe it will help the archaeologist who unearths this thread later.
