PostPosted: Fri 02 Sep 2011, 02:26    Post subject:  PetCheck - views files in Pets or installed packages
Subject description: Pet NoClobber Viewer/Installer
 

Note: requires recent gtkdialog 0.7.21 (which has fileselect filters).


Views files in Pets or installed packages... shows potential overwrites of already installed files and builtins. Color-list shows all files together (separated by colors); option to view files with links.

"Install-NoClobber" opens a checklist with already installed files unchecked by default. Select desired files for installation, and click "OK"

Run "Builtin Installer (once) " to see builtins listed; otherwise they'll just be listed with the installed files; installer creates a file in /mnt/home.

Change Log: 9/2/11 user-installed-packages reflects package names as ||$NAME-nc.pet||
9/3/11: compress builtin list in /mnt/home; read uncompressed copy in /tmp
9/24/11 Version 1.5 Uses gtimer process widget
1/29/12 Version 2.0 Uses checklist instead of editbox

One very big thankyou from me to you.
This is one I will have to check out.

I am back after having previously installed yad-0.13.0-i486.pet.
That pet had no language files (not needed by me) and no man file (wanted). I also had zenity installed as a binary file.
So I told PetCheck I wanted to install yad-0.12.2-i486.pet and clicked Color-List.
I was shown the files in yad-0.12.2-i486.pet that I already had installed in blue.
I then selected Install-NoClobber and was shown an editable list of the files to be installed with the ones I had already installed prefixed by a question mark. I put a question mark before other files I did not want installed and selected install from the popup.
I then checked /root/.packages/yad-0.12.2-i486-nc.files and it contained only the selected files.
So all in all, I think it is a really great utility and it is going to change the way I install downloaded PET packages.
Almost everything was easily understood other than knowing one should run the Builtin Installer.

Thank you again and you can use this post as a testimonial to the usefulness of PetCheck! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hi 8-bit,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad it's working. I made PetCheck so it will work without installing the builtin filelist if desired....then they just show up as installed files.

Version 2.0: Replaced the editbox with a combo-checklist for no-clobber install file selection. By default, already installed files load as unchecked. Also includes some bug fixes (sed escapes, link file issues)
