Thanks for the latest tutorial stretchedthin, once again... excellent.

Just one minor complaint There is no "Next" (only "Back") on the page/slide where you tick off the Checklist, near the end of the tutorial.

And one suggestion: Could you make some kind of index on your site so it is easier to navigate to where things are. I depend on this page to get the Packaging tutorials

How the h#$$ did I miss that!!  Thanks for pointing that out.  It would prevent anyone from moving further and there is about 30 more frames.
I've uploaded the fix should be good now.

I have not made a page for them yet on my site. Right now this is the place to find them.  That being said would you just rather I had an index rather than the pixmap or both maybe?

OK, here is another.  Rbistolfi guided me through this one as I had no clue.  It has no Makefile and you have to tailor the instructions from the README file and make them work withing the .SlackBuild script.  Sounds complicated, but after 4 hours making this screencast, I think I'll be dreaming about it.

SBbuilder: working without a Makefile. Example CUPS-PDF

Also, I think this gives me enough screencasts to start a page on my site.  It should be up in a couple days.

That was a hard one.  Kudos to you and rbistolfi.

I followed my own tutorial to package billardgl and I noticed the tutorial missed a step.
Kind of an important step too.  My apologies.

I've corrected and all links lead to the right one now, but since ethier 21 of you have already watched it (or 1 of you has watched it 21 times) I'll save you some time and explain.

After the changes are made to the Makefile (getting it to take the $DESTDIR variable) the old .tar.gz has to be deleted and
the sourcefile (with the changed Makefile in it) has to be compressed into the new .tag.gz.

This new .tar.gz is the one that gets copied into the same directory as the .SlackBuild.

Really, Sorry

Well I've added the page for packaging to the site. You can find it here.
http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/VLpackaging/page

You can also get to the page by clicking on GSLAPT on the VL image map here...
http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Distro/VL60

There are a number of area's not completed but it does give some indication of the direction the page will be going.

All this learning about how to create packages for VL really has slowed down my normal rate of screencast production.  I think it was worth it though.
Hope to see a lot more packagers out there.

If anyone has a good example of a cmake package they can PM me some notes on, I will ad that to the screencasts.  Same thing goes for a no arch type build.
Again, thanks to Rbistolfi and Kidd, for all the help and for making SBbuilder in the first place.

Want a little VL to go?  Make your own live cd/dvd or even live usb flash-drive.

Uelsk8s vmklive is still alive and well, despite not being repackaged for the vl6.0 repositories.
Start by making your own Vector Linux live cd/dvd.  Here is how I did mine.

http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/01.Installation/vmklive/vmklive.htm

Then if you prefer USB flash drive for your bootable Vector, just use the custom .iso you created in the tutorial above and substitute it in instead of the vl light .iso used in the tutorial below. 
http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/01.Installation/bootusb/unetbootin.htm

I've been playing around with this an now have a live usb or dvd for vl-light, gold, and gold with kde4.2 as default desktop.  Have fun.

vl-usb-install comes in the vl-live-tools package with vmklive. What is the advantage of Unetbootin over vl-usb-install?

The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

It could have just been me, but I couldn't get vl-usb-install to work for the two machines I tried it on, virtual machines actually. For the purpose of making the screencasts I do these things in VirtualBox.  I was already familiar with unetbootin so I went with that.

I'm itching to make a VL6 LiveCD. I was on vacation for a few days and took along a VL 5.9 Standard LiveCD and a PCLinuxOS Live CD for when I was using my sister-in-law's computer. VL 5.9 Live did a great job of recognizing the laptop hardware and even set up the wireless Internet connection without any effort on my part. I just opened Firefox and went to my URL of choice.

Unfortunately, I was unable to control the touchpad with VL 5.9. I couldn't find any way to turn off Tap to Click, which I loathe beyond any possibility of describing. As a result, I was constantly fighting unwanted clicks--which I didn't click at all. Simply moving the cursor over things resulted in a click and an unwanted browser tab opening. PCLinuxOS was nearly as bad and I couldn't find a way to turn off tap to click. So my LiveCD experience was both great and wretched!

I loved VL 5.9 when I was using it last year, but VL6 is immensely better. I know that VL6 does include controls for touchpads (though I disable the touchpad entirely and use a notebook mouse). I look forward to having a VL6 LiveCD.

I wasn't impressed with PCLinuxOS. Fact is, I don't care much for anything but VL Standard and VL Light.<g> The less said about Ubuntu the better. Wink

This might be just the thing for you then Granny.  You can disable the touchpad completely before making your custom live cd/dvd and never have to deal with it again.  One note though.  Internet set-up seem to be less portable when the live cd is made on a computer that is connected to the internet at the time.  It expects to find the same connection on every computer and that just not the case.  Seems better to make the custom .iso with internet unconnected.

Read about your success introducing Vector to you family, way to spread the gospil.  I've set up my father (83) with Vector.  I'm working on a way I can easily set myself up with some remote desktop control so I can help him out.  Not that he is having a tough time.  He is actually doing just as well if not better than when he was on Windows XP.

I found a simple way to set up remote screen sharing and control, with my Dad.  It had to be simple, so he could set it up at his end.  Yuuguu turned out to be perfect for this.
So of course I made a couple screencasts.
Installing Yuuguu on VectorLinux (.deb package.)

Demo of invite and remote share with Yuuguu

Worked great for me.
