Starting with pkgsrc on already-established Linux (Slackware) installation, how to bootstrap when pkgsrc is read-only?
How would I bootstrap pkgsrc to run in Linux, when pkgsrc is on a partition
that is read-only from Linux (NetBSD 5.1_STABLE installation)?
Where I would put the work directory? Normally it would be
/usr/pkgsrc/category/package-name/work, but I would not have this directory on
Linux, so where do I put the work directory, lacking individual package
directories? This would be no problem with NetBSD 5.99.44 on USB stick, or
4.0.1 on another USB stick, since I can have work directories work51, work599
and work401 so they don't get in each other's way (no read-only problem).
I could use /usr/pkg as pkgsrc installation prefix with no conflict, but I have
to be able to recognize dependencies already built in prefix /usr (Slackware)
and /usr/local (some of my own builds). I could let pkgsrc record package
builds in /var/db/pkg with no conflict, but Slackware packages are listed in
/var/log/packages where the format is quite different from /var/db/pkg in
NetBSD and FreeBSD. I would also have to be sure that pkgsrc would recognize
include and lib files in each of these three prefixes. I don't want to install
a lot of packages in duplicate.
