CRUX-Linux ports

Steffen's CRUX-Linux ports

A few ports for  Crux-Linux that i miss. These are verifiable with my  Signify public key. (Its signature: [Image: CRUX logo] The ports can be accessed through the usual  Crux port drivers, namely  httpup (ports/stenur.httpup) and  git(1) (ports/stenur.git). The git version can be browsed online.

I have written a wrapper script,, around the CRUX package tools and their configuration files /etc/pkgmk.conf and /etc/prt-get.conf that i find very comfortable, it reduces a full system update to

	# bin/ -sU  # -s may not be available for you

	# # prt-get --test sysup
	# # bin/
	# # .. olay adjustments, as necessary ..

	# bin/ -d  # download anything
	# # no more web traffic

	# bin/ -nq # build anything non-interactive + "quiet"
	# # in case of package errors fix that, build it via prt-get,
	# # and then call "# bin/ -r" to resume normal flow

	# bin/

Whereas is easily usable / adaptable (you surely want to adjust the BOX_PORTS variable), and are pretty much specific as they depend on my style and order of port usage in /etc/prt-get.conf:

	prtdir /usr/ports/olay-lock
	prtdir /usr/ports/olay
	prtdir /usr/ports/stenur
	prtdir /usr/ports/core
	prtdir /usr/ports/opt
	prtdir /usr/ports/xorg
	prtdir /usr/ports/contrib

olay-lock and olay contain local overlays, ports in olay-lock are treated as if locked via prt-get lock PORT, whereas those in olay will be built as necessary. To get reminded of possibly desired updates of overlayed ports Once an update was performed i call, it looks for obsolete binaries (/usr/ports/built) and balls (/x/balls), and moves them to the respective .stale subdirectory, after cleaning that first; note that it requires git(1) based prtdirs for graceful functioning (if a prt-get current port is not updated it will nonetheless be moved to the .stale directories otherwise). These two are mount points here, and in conjunction with file system snapshots i have a clean set of required source balls and built packages, with the recently replaced ones still available in .stale.
