Package Searching: Which Iso Image?


How to know in advance what is the disk where foo.tgz lies, where
foo is any package, and assuming it is slackware 12.0
the distribution of insterest, without the need of down-
loading the images? Certainly, there is a
file REAME_D2, say, for disk 2 and so on, listing the
disk contents. But these
files, as far as I know, are contained in the disks
and in the disks alone. Anybody's hint will be welcome.

Thanks for reading.

Search Slackware Packages

The Slackware Package Browser is a web application written in PHP using a MySQL DB which performs searches on the Slackware packages. The Slackware Package Browser database is also used to generate the Slackware RSS feeds.

There are currently two kind of searches, package search and filename search. Follows a description of these search types (be sure to read the tips as well, they are *important*!)

Package Search
By selecting this search type and entering a string, the Package Browser will try to find matches both in the package name and in the descriptions.
So, if you look for xmms, you'd find the package named "xmms" and any other package with "xmms" in their descriptions.
File name Search
This search type is mostly usefull when you install a new package, and you find out that you are missing a file (usually a library) needed by that package. However it's also usefull when you accidentaly delete a file and you are wondering which package it contains it.
