Repository access

Why?

While this site should be useful for all the users by providing search, full package info and download, most professionals and system administrators would prefer to use automatic update agents for their systems. That is why the packages described here are organized in a directory structure with service information intended for automated tools, which facilitate all the tasks of upgrading old or installing new packages.

Tools

To use the automatic update from SlackPack repositories you should install and configure (see next section) one of the following tools:

  • slapt-get ext^ - A tool similar to the APText^ system. SlackPack repositories support slapt-get extensions for dependencies between packages.
  • Slackpkg ext^ - An automated toll for management of Slackware Linux packages. With the Slackpkg+ plugin you can use third-party repositories as SlackPack.

Configuration

This information should be enough for you to properly configure the tool of choice to update your system from the SlackPack repositories. You should first choose a mirror next to you and then use its configuration. You can just copy and paste the corresponding lines:
