RC2 is now in the repos.
A few bugs have been squashed, a few things have also been added.
This is as of SVN Revision 75.
I get "failed to download" error in gslapt.
I downloaded it from your website. Very nice. =)
very nice.I love the new features.
Feature request: Generate slackbuild file, move source package and slackbuild to a directory specified by the user (in settings) in a subfolder with the name of the package..
In settings window:
enable/disable (checkbox)- generate a slackbult
enable/disable (checkbox) - include slackbuilt in tlz package (it would be great if its default enabled and it puts the slackbuilts somewhere in a special slackbuilt directory for vector ,like zenwalk does)
enable/disable (checkbox) - when done,copy slackbuild and source package in a folder where the tlz package is moved, .(when user wants to upload them at the repo)
Specify directory for saving slackbuld+source of built packages
then the script would create a folder with the name of the build package and put inside the source package,the slackbuild and the compiled package... mkdir /$specifiedbyuserdir/$packagename/<the fileshere>
or something like that. That would deffinatelly turn this into a killer app for slackware packaging.
[ looking too far at the idea of package management ]
Maybe just dreaming too far with this but... vpackager could have a module to download source packages and compile them into tlz packages...something likehttp://pisibul.sourceforge.net/en.html
wouldnt that be sweet?
Something like portage or pacman for vector,only that it will package the compiled source archves into packages,that can be uninstallable by gslapt. That would be interesting.
But still not sure,if there will be a vnetpackager ( i can already picture how its icon could look like) , where will it look for the source packages.It should have a package database somewhere...or use the avaiable slackbuilds at the repo...hmm
That would deffinatelly put Vector aside of the other slack based distros as different.
