This script is intended to build auto-magically most "simple" packages. It can be customized with optional hook subscripts (build.sh configure.sh postbuild.sh prebuild.sh) to handle complex packages builds.
Anyway, for most simple packages (for example : a library package called "foobar") all you have to do is :
- put the source alone in a directory (ie : foobar-1.1.tar.gz)
- put the slack-desc for foobar in this same directory (if you omit the slackdesc, a generic description for foobar will be generated)
- run "SlackBuild foobar" inside the directory
As a result you will get a binary slackware package for the software foobar 1.1
Please try it :) and report improvements !
