Packaging tool that interacts with the SBo repository
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 SlackBuilds.org organization to build packages. It also uses the Slackware Linux instructions for installing, upgrading or removing packages.
