slapt-get

slapt-get is an APT-like system for Slackware package management. It allows you to search Slackware mirrors and third-party package sources (such as www.linuxpackages.net) for packages, compare them with installed packages, and install new packages or upgrade installed packages, all with a few simple commands.

            Hopefully glsapt will soon fill that need.

            Synaptic
            While I like slapt-get very much ( being a former Debian user ) I would like it even more if I had Synaptic available . Since slap-get is implemented would it be so difficult to have Synaptic ?

            Apt-get for RPM has Synaptic , why shouldn't slapt-get have it ?

            Right now I'm enjoying Slack's speed but I'm just about to give it up to go back to the almost perfect apt-get+aptitude+Synaptic+huge Debian repository .

            I realise that Slackware doesn't have all that for now but even though it has slapt-get will it ever have it all ?

            I think the day for the DIY no dependencies handling are gone so it's about time Slackware implemented a new package managment system to fully support dependencies.

            You need libcurl installed to build from source. See the list of Dependencies above on this project's page for a link to libcurl.

            Slapt Update 1.0 Released!
            For those of you who are not on the slapt-get mailing lists, I'd like to introduce you to my 'Slapt Update' script.

            This script will notify you via email about new Slackware packages as they become availible. It has the following features:

            [*] Sends an email notification that includes the list of packages that have been updated,removed or added along with the new changelog excerpt

            [*] Ability to track either current or stable

            [*] Ability to automatically download (but not install) packages when new updates are found

            [*] Ability to ignore excludes

            [*] Ability to report obsolete packages

            [*] Ability to send the report to STDOUT rather than an email

            [*] If Changelog URL stops working, a notification email will be sent

            [*] Changelog report is optional

            [*] Ability to have the script check for new versions of itself

            Get it at www.atozcomp.com/slapt...
