CruxPorts4Slack adapts the "ports" and "pkgmk" commands to allow the use of ports repositories for Crux with Slackware. In the BSD Unix World a ports system means a directory hierarchy (ususally under /usr/ports) where you can automatically build your own binary packages from source. The advantage of a ports system is, that the built packages are optimized for your computer. Second advantage is: ports are faster available then binary packages. In the last years ports systems became popular on Linux, too. A well-known Linux distro with a ports system is Gentoo, another one is Crux (www.crux.nu). Being a Slackware fan, I decided to switch to Crux, because Slackware hadnt alls the packages I wanted and using ./configure && make && make install (or even checkinstall) wasnt the optimum for me. At first I was impressed with the ports system of Crux. But building every single package, even the most basic software (e.g. util-linux), was getting on my nerves. And I didnt like the system layout of Crux (they are using devfs) as much as I liked Slackwares. I thought "Why dont use a mix of the two". Slackware with the Crux ports system - that would be it. Crux binary packages are based on tar.gz, so are Slackware packages. So I switched back to Slack and ported the Crux port system to Slackware. Another reason for making this is, that I will use this system in the next version of DeLi Linux (www.delilinux.de). Here is the result: With cruxports4slack you can use the crux ports system with Slackware. Running: pkginfo ------- usage: pkginfo [-i|-i package] options: -i, --installed list installed packages and their version. -l, --list package list files owned by the specified package -h print help and exit Whats New in This Release: - The ability to use alternative Pkgfiles was added. - The httpup files for the contrib and opt repositories were updated..
