 Distro Packages

 
 by suslik on: Jan 9 2005
 
Score 50%

I suppose one can emulate a fake root directory through --prefix and use this tool to build and install binaries there. i.e.:
configure --prefix=/home/user/fakeroot
make
make install

So, you can run Kinstaller as simple user.

Than as root run a script like (Slackware-related example)

(pass a pack name to it for $1 to work)
cd /home/user/fakeroot
makepkg $1
upgragepkg $1
mv *.tgz /home/user/storage/in
rm -r *
chown USER.users

Since one already can pass a options to ./configure through configuration tab of Kinstaller, all that's left is an ability to autorun a script of your choice after the Kinstaller is done.

 Uninstall

 
 by isti on: Jan 9 2005
 
Score 50%

With all your comments (thanks for this) in mind I come to the conclusion that the most requested feature is an uninstall functionality. Since adding 'checkinstall' or the possibility to perform arbitrary scripts requires more effort I will delay this and first try to keep records of the installations done. These records then can be used for later deinstallation.

Thanks again for your comments!

Why do you want to keep the install records (create one more package management system) when we can just use package systems built into each distro?

IMHO "make install"ing into fake root dir and building distro-related package is much easier for you to accomplish.

You can just add one more tab, where we can choose the script from the pulldown menu, (hopefully pre-guessed/remembered from previous selection). I wouldn't mind supplying script for Slackware. Others will do other distros.

The other benefit to offloading actual installation to a script is - Kinstall can be run as normal user. You only need SUID root for the scripts.

you are right to say we don't need another package manager. I started to program KInstaller because I missed a feature in KDE to install source packages as easy as package managers can do with binary packages. Now I see that a deinstallation is needed too. Sure we can use checkinstall or special installation scripts (btw I prefer checkinstall because its doing a good job) to create bin packs which can be deinstalled by a package manager. But there are two things to consider:

- this is inconsistent and may irritate users. Why should I deinstall a program with a package manager which I installed with KInstaller?

- you need additional programs to do this and the users have to install them. Why forcing users to install, say, checkinstall in order to use KInstaller when a simple 'make uninstall' can do the job?

Nonetheless I like the idea of creating bin packs (and I hope to find the time add this feature). Then the users have the choice of using a package manager if they like. But they don't need to and this is imo important.

 MY error

checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

well, this is a bug. When KInstaller doesn't find the correct kde base directory the default is used (/opt/kde3). This will be fixed in the next release.

BTW: it would be very nice if you could post me your kde base so I can add it to the default list.

Sorry, I have overseen this comment. When you have installed KInstaller by RPM this package is created by someone else. Please contact the author of the RPM package.

 KConfigure

KConfigure does the same job, but better : it creates the RPM(deb/TGZ depending of the distro) from the source files enabling YOU to remove the package

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
