I changed the post to posttrans for the mkrepo - and then it work fine when installing (here at least).
I think I have missed something about gbd, is this Gnu Debugger? What is it used for?
I'll gladly add it to the thunar - what is the commandline for build all in this case?
One of the scripts in the pkgutils package is gbd
.. it creates the local repos packagelists automatically using genbasedir
. Having it run from a context menu if the build completes successfully would automatically update the local repo's package lists so that synaptic could then see the newly built package after a reload.
the command would be rpm -ba %f && gbd
...for KDE the modification would be made in the build-spec.desktop file in the package's source tar.
However, it might also be slightly annoying because of the time it takes to run every time a package is built successfully; perhaps an option with and without it would be better or just an option for it by itself
It was just an idea that I figured I would throw out there and let the group decide..
