anyone have a good idea on how to handle 2 CD's worth of binary pkgs? The
problem I have is this:
a complete pkgsrc build results in about 1.5 CD's worth of pkgs (depending
on which port). So I have foo-1.0.tgz on CD1 and libbar-1.0.tgz on CD2
but only have 1 CD-ROM drive. So I do
pkg_add /cdrom/All/foo-1.0.tgz and it fails because it doesn't find libbar
which it depends on.
now clearly I could figure out the right order and manually install the
depends, but it would be nice to have a simple tool that creates some sort
of directory for the CD set so it will say "please put CD#2 in the drive"
when its time.
thoughts? A simple text file perhaps that looks like:
pkgname #1| cd name
pkgname #2| cd name
and a shell script which sorts out the dependency order and walks you
through each one? The text file would be duplicated on each CD in the
