[edit] Getting a port turned into a PBI

If you wish to keep your favorite port across system updates, there is more than one way to accomplish this, but soon to become common is the creation of a PBI. The process of turning a port into a PBI can be a very simple matter of either using pbi_makeport from the commandline, or the GUIfied EasyPBI or EasyPBI2 programs. However, not every port submits so easily to this conversion process, and sometimes extra interaction is needed in order to succeed. The purpose of this area is to help document how those challenging ports get turned into PBIs and also perhaps, by way of this information, assist with improvement to the tools that would automate the process.

Note: This page pertains to PBI version 9.

[edit] What has been Attempted

Is this version of the port a One-Click PBI creation candidate?

Table 1. Ports attempted. [tables 1]
Category Port name Version Options 1-Click Special changes (and/or errors)
sysutils easypbi 1.0 defaults yes
www firefox 8.0,1 defaults yes needs adjustment to define desktop icon
mail gmail-notify 1.6.1.1_4 defaults yes needs adjustment to define desktop icon
irc quassel 0.73 no needs work; cannot create monolithic version, other versions have problems.
emulators virtualbox-ose 4.0.14 defaults no seems like it cannot pull-in kernel source
emulators virtualbox-ose-additions 4.0.14 defaults no seems like it cannot pull-in kernel source
emulators virtualbox-ose-kmod 4.0.14 defaults no seems like it cannot pull-in kernel source
deskutils znotes 0.45 defaults yes needs adjustment to define included desktop icon

One-click candidates are fully functional but can have minor flaws, such as a generic desktop/menu icon, or appearing in lost & found. Some ports have various non-default options which may prevent creation or cause a substantially different PBI to be made that either performs differently or lacks certain features (such as NLS).
