XPKGTOOL is a GUI front-end for pkgtools that allows you to manage, install, remove, and upgrade packages with ease, through a nice and user friendly X-based interface. It comes with a built-in update manager, called SlackGrade, that will help you to keep your Slackware system up to date, checking, downloading, and upgrading the system with the latest packages available from the main Slackware distribution sources on the Web.
