|Download||If you don't want to use rpm for every little package
that you install, instutil is for you. It's a very simple python script that
save into a file basic information about a package that you install. In every
moment you can know what packages you have installed from source and where
they were installed from; since version 0.0.4 instutil support InstallWatch
so that you can have a list of installed files for every package.
-Added a config file
-Added -T -t -u options
-Installwatch-0.6.3 included in the package
Probably the next release will come with a frontend, that i'm already writing
- Improvements in InstallWatch log parser, now should be ok
- Added -r option, to remove entries from database without unistall them
- code cleanup
This should be the last 0.0.x release, in the next there will be lots of changes.
- Code cleanup
- Bugfixes in Installwatch log parser
- Added "-o" option, similar to "rpm -qf [FILE_NAME]"
- Small bugfixes
Perhaps InstallWatch will be included in future releases
- Installwatch support, tested with installwatch 0.6.3
- Removed checkinstall option
- Added --file-list option to view the file list for a package

you can install a package with installwatch. Instutil will parse installwatch log file and will create a file list for the package; if you want to uninstall a package and the "make uninstall" script fails you can choose to use this list to uninstall the package, however this features should be tested.
- long list option added
- custom command for installation option added
- created Package class, so that every package is an instance of this class instead of a dictionary
- package version support
- name and version autodetection
- now you can change package info at the end of installation
- Makefile added with a monitored-installation option
- command line option to change package database
# tar xfz instutil-0.0.2
# cd instutil-0.0.2
# make install <== If you want a normal installation (you can change prefix in makefile)
# make install-instutil <== If you want an installation made by instutil itself
|Installation Utility is a little python script (instutil)
that give you the opportunity of keeping track of packages that you install
from sources. You can choose a name, a description and instutil will save
the installation time and the directory the package was installed from in
a file called "~/.instutil_list". You can uninstall the package just typing
# instutil -u program_name
It works only if "make uninstall" is available and the directory is still present.
# instutil -h
for a complete list of options.
