    Red face Slackware package manager

    I may have to help someone installing a few packages under Slackware Linux. Does anyone know how to install, list and delete packages under Slakware Linux version 12?

    Raj, yes use pkgtool to install or remove !! To list existing packages: ls /var/log/packages

    Default

    Slapt-get, gslapt (front end slapt-get) like Debian Synaptic, slackpkg (new slackpkg+), sbopkg, sbodeps, SlackPack or best manually to terminal installpkg or upgradepkg --install-new.

    Best way is building package from SBo (slackbuild.org)
    # ./package.SlackBuild
    and install package
    # installpkg /tmp/package.tgz or
    # upgradepkg --install-new /tmp/package.tgz
