Slackware Repositories

Slackware Linux is perhaps the best Linux OS for a hacker. I've been using it for 2 months now and felt that it's repos are grossly un-used.

Slapt-get, the apt-get clone for Slackware isn't quite the killer app, but it is swell! There is also a synaptic-like GUI for it too... GSlapt. So the first advice from me would be to get this wonder and add these awesome repos:~


ftp://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/slackware/slackware-12.1/
ftp://ftp.slackware.pl/pub/gnomeslackbuild/gsb/gsb-2.22/
http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.1/

Just one more thing. The caches are arranged in
/var/slapt-get/packages
folder in neat directories describing what they do.
