Updating packages with xfce in slackware

However, I use XFCE from time to time – for example when I have to run a remote X session over XDMCP and want to keep a fluid feel to the desktop.

When I was working in XFCE yesterday I wanted to use […] Ouch…

I do not use -current, but since Slackware 14.0 is just around the corner I need to test my Slack Builds on it.

So, I booted my Slackware64 13.37 DVD and did a direct netinstall of -current on my desktop PC. It was more tricky to install slackware32 -current in a virtual machine, where I check how my Slack Builds work on the 32bit architecture.

After that, install slackpkg using the installpkg command.

After install, you need to select ONE (and ONLY one) mirror to download packages from.

When I began writing this review there had been 921 days since the last stable Slackware release.

Very, very annoying — especially when doing an installation.

of Slackware abandoning its KISS policy then you can rest assured that it’s not happening anytime soon.

Also making it first appearance in Slackware is Pulse Audio which predictably didn’t get a warm embrace from the Slackware community.

Just type "slackpkg" and all packages in the Official Slackware Linux will be in your hands.

First, you need to download the "slackpkg" package.
