Slpkg is a powerful software package manager that installs, updates, and removes packages on Slackware based systems.
It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages.
It was designed to make a Slackware system administrator's job easier by allowing routine package management tasks to be accomplished in a single command.
libcurl provides support for ftp, ftps, http, https, file:// and other resource types along with transfer resume for incomplete downloads.
slapt-get also uses the GNU Privacy Guard library to validate signatures.
On an x86_64 system, the output might look something like this: NOTE: The kernel-headers package should not be upgraded if you're staying within the same Salix release.
Only upgrade it if at the same time you are upgrading your entire system to a newer release.
Slackpkg does not resolve dependencies between packages, like rpm from Fedora and open SUSE.
