Re: Making syspkgs and makefs play nice together
: Hi all,
: I want to be able to build filesystems from syspkgs/pkgsrc format
: packages and there are a few things that need to be ironed out before
: this can happen.
: I want to add an unprivileged mode to pkg_add that will probably be
: enabled automatically if you aren't running it as root. In this mode
: it will not try and set any file permissions.
: I can then write an AWK program to convert a package's PLIST into an
: mtree specification for makefs.
: Comments anyone?
I would suggest that the unprivileged mode of pkg_add (optionally)
writes out the mtree specification itself. pkg_add knows the
ownership and permission the installed files should have, and can
record that in a file instead of setting them directly in the file
system (like install(1) does when it's invoked by build.sh).
Alternatively, we could change the PLIST format to be an mtree
