Damaged packages on install of slackware 11


Hi again, when I installed slackware 11 I noticed that the program hiccupped a couple of times and said there was a problem installing such and such a package. Been so busy that I nearly forgot to replace the packages. How do I go about replacing individual packages. I have written down the info concerning them, so the should be easy to find. My problem is where do I look?

This is an obviously easy question for the geniuses that roam the corridors of linux questions forum. Can someone point me in the right direction, please.

As always, any contribution will be gratefully received.

If you have list of packages that need to be reinstalled, just download the package from http://dev.slackware.it/packages/ and in command prompt:
Code:
removepkg <package name>
installpkg /path/to/<package name>
