Unhappy [CONCERN] - There aren't commands are missing - Slackware 13.37


I have Slackware 13.37 distribution. There are certain command that are missing like: insserv for an example. Is there a place where missing commands can be downloaded or scripts that makes up the missing commands can be downloaded?

~ Thanks

I believe the Slackware equivalent to 'insserv' would be 'pkgtool' -> Setup -> services.

insserv is a tool for Debian's System V init system. Slackware does not use the same init system, so insserv would simply not be useful on a Slackware system. Either use your shell to manually activate/deactivate services or use the pkgtool command as posted above.
