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.
toast is a simple package manager for Unix. It automatically locates and downloads source code, determines how to compile it, installs each package in its own directory tree, and makes the resulting binaries available through an encap/GNU stow-like symlink tree. It also supports binary packages. It is often used to install and manage software in a non-root user's home directory.
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.
UniPackage is an alternative to distribution-specific packaging systems like dpkg and RPM. UniPackage is a simple system that works on any Linux distribution. UniPackage packages are tar.bz2 archives which contain a self-contained "AppDir" which can be moved anywhere in the filesystem without disturbing the application's installation. In most cases, this packaging does not require changes to the application's code. The issue of dependencies is avoided by bundling all required libraries in the AppDir.
mkpkg is a small toolkit for automatically building Slackware or OpenLab packages. It should work on most packages that contain a makefile. It follows Slackware standards and is intended to build packages acceptable for linuxpackages.net. After you type the description, it generates a correctly formatted slack-desc file and logs configure options.
