I made a program and if the pisi cache is enabled in package manager it will backup your downloaded PiSi packages to a folder on your desktop.
It may be useful for re-installations so you don't need to download everything again.

I've attached the program to the post a few posts below.

Good work Wink It maybe useful for those who don't know the cache directory of PiSi.

Great Smiley I'm 17. When I started using Linux (actually, beginning to use it), I was 14 and I even didn't know what the shell is for :-) Keep using Linux, and learn a programming language. Python is the best choice for beginning.

Thanks.

I have no knowledge of programming langs; only a small bit of LUA.
Where do I start on making a python app; Perhaps with a GUI??

No, you should just learn language's rules. Importing modules, if statements, for, while loops etc. Dive into python is a good choice for beginners.

Sorry, newbie question....
I have 4 partitions: root, swap, home (sda6) and docs (sda7).
I would like to back up my pisis downloads on docs.
So I click on the sh file, select the path as /mnt/sda7/pisibackup, click ok.
I receive confirmation that all is ok, but when I go to the folder, it is empty? What am I not doing properly?
Thanks!

Ok, realised that the cache was not enabled on Pisi.
Now that is a dumb default option if I may say so. Better cache on by default, no? For newbies like me who used Pisi like crazy and have loads of packages downloaded?

The cache must be on before the packages get downloaded. It should be the default option but it's not. It may be the default option in Pardus 2008.

Pardus 2008 should come out later this year.  Shocked

Check the progress here.  Wink

UPDATED: New Script added

I have added a new 'install_packages.sh' script that installs all packages in the current directory automatically. Just run it in a terminal as root.

Possible uses are including it in your pisibackup folder so you can easily install all updates/software easily after a re-install.

It's attached.
