Before we continue, it is important to realize that the Slackware package manager does not perform any dependency checks.
After that, install slackpkg using the installpkg command.
After install, you need to select ONE (and ONLY one) mirror to download packages from.
Just type "slackpkg" and all packages in the Official Slackware Linux will be in your hands.
First, you need to download the "slackpkg" package.
Login as “root” now - you will find yourself at a “#” console root-prompt. The “” user is not the account which you are going to use as a matter of routine.
Root is meant for system maintenance and configuration, software upgrades and the like.Once you issue the upgrade command you will be presented with a pre-selected list of packages to upgrade. When slackpkg runs it may need to overwrite existing config files.For this reason you will be prompted to keep,overwrite,remove, or prompt per file.We'll assume you've read the Installation Guide, and you have a clean install of Slackware on your machine that you're happy with.This beginner's guide is meant to put you firmly on the Slackware path.When maintaining a server or even a personal system a certain amount of control must be given to the administrator, the control and simplicity of Slackware package management is what may in fact make you want to try Slackware.
