slakbootIBS (Slackware Interactive Boot Scripts) is an enhanced set of replacement boot scripts for the Slackware Linux distribution. It includes a set of control and dispatch tools for configuring and booting with colorized interactive scripts. The new boot process allows the operator to select or skip start-up components in realtime. It facilitates debugging of startup problems and allows operators to maintain a common baseline to support several local configurations or multiple servers with a single set of scripts.

dpkg-du is a script to produce a dump of the installed size of Debian packages in du format. This is to enable ease of reuse with pre-existing scripts administrators may have to deal with 'du' format lists. For example, dpkg-du|sort -n|tail -10 will show the 10 biggest packages on your system.
UnusedPkg is a diagnostic tool to search the oldest unused packages in your Linux system. UnusedPkg prints a sorted list with the size and number of days that a package has been idle. This helps you determine what packages can be manually removed to clean the system. It supports any apt-based distribution (tested on Debian and Ubuntu) and Slackware.
Nhopkg is a lightweight and powerful package manager system for Unix-like operating systems. Nhopkg can install, remove, update, search, and manage software packages in its own .nho format. Nhopkg aims to be a universal package manager. Because of this, Nhopkg isn't only a package manager, but is also a set of guidelines to pack up software for any machine. Therefore, to check package dependencies, Nhopkg searches for specific files instead of package names.
