Subject description: Source Code Package Organizer
 

Home: http://paco.sourceforge.net/
Version: 2.0.6

Quote:
Paco is a source code package organizer for Unix/Linux systems, originally written to aid package management when installing an LFS system.

When installing a package from sources, paco wraps the "make install" command (or whatever is needed to install the files into the system), and generates a log containing the list of all installed files.

Technically, this is done by preloading a shared library before installation using the environment variable LD_PRELOAD. During installation this library catches the system calls that cause filesystem alterations, logging the created files.

Like any other package manager, paco also provides several options to show package information in different formats. It can remove packages too, among some other basic operations. See the man page for more details.

Gpaco is the graphic interface of paco.


If i run 'new2dir make install' i always have to look into the filesystem, if new2dir has 'lost' something. So i looked for something that logs the installed files better. paco seems to do so.

For all options look at the homepage or in the included manpages.

Screenshots are here: http://paco.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html

Simple instruction:
1. After running e.g configure and make you use 'paco -l -D'. That means that paco logs the installation and uses the actual directory-name for naming.
2. Open gpaco. You'll see an item of your new installed package. Double-click. Now you see all logged files. You can now (for example) uninstall the files or pack them into a zipped file.

The config file is at /usr/local/etc. Logfiles are at /root/.paco/log.

Needs glibmm, gtkmm and cairomm. Get them from http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/

Compiled and tested in Dingo (4.00).

Cheers

Hi aragon

I'm going to try this!

It looks like the answer to some woes.

I'm trying to package Xfce4-4.6.2... what a nightmare! (I could imagine KDE being 10X the nightmare Laughing )

Cheers

Mick

DESTDIR is the way i usually use because it's simpler and faster than using paco. but if DESTDIR fails, paco helps.
