Packaging tool that interacts with the SBo repository

Project description


Slpkg is a software package manager that installs, updates and removes packages on Slackware-based systems. It automatically calculates dependencies and figures out what things need to happen to install packages. Slpkg makes it easier to manage groups of machines without the need for manual updates.

Slpkg works in accordance with the standards of the organization to build packages. It also uses the Slackware Linux instructions for installing, upgrading or removing packages.




Install from the official third-party SBo repository or directly from source:

$ tar xvf slpkg-4.1.3.tar.gz
$ cd slpkg-4.1.3
$ ./


$ slpkg --help
