    Emerde Warning


    I was reading a thread here the other day and Slackware users were talking about trying "emerde" for Slackware. Don't remember what thread it was so Im posting this here.

    I've talked to a couple of people that have told me that emerde borked their Slack and had to reinstall their system. Don't know specifics yet but I thought I would post a warning here a quickly as posssible.

    Well, it IS beta. No guarantees that it will work as advertised.

    Looks interesting though. More info here.

    That's what happens when you use unstable apps.

    Personally, I feel that if you want automatic package handling, dependency checking, and automatic configuration scripts you shouldn't be using Slack in the first place.

    When you install Emerde , its a good idea to backup your '/sbin/' + '/var/log'
    directories . It makes some big changes to your package managment system .
    Its really quite an excellent port{age} . If you're not satisfied , you can enter 'uninstall-emerde' into bash , then replace your '/sbin/' + '/var/log/' directories to how they were before .

    Thats exactly what I told the developer in an email the other night .
    And then later that night , while I was having a puff, I started to worry that he thought that I meant that emerde was ****** .
    I wrote(This is the end of the email);

    Thanx

    R ->French-babelfish> ER->put-together->eMerde->frenchbabelfish->****

    I tried Emerde when first moving to Slackware and I did indeed 'bork' my install. Something sort of similar I've found useful from time to time is CruxPorts4Slack.

    yeah , I've just had a ganders at that , It looks quite cool .
    Its alot simpler than portage , and doesnt effect your current pkgtools+package database .
