Packaging manager for Slackware 9.1 ???


Hi there,
Is there a packaging manager software available to Slackware 9.1? If so, does it resolve dependecies automatically? Something like YUM on Fedora or emerge on Gentoo...

Thanks in advance!

it looks like that the pkgtool on slackware does not download packages and resolve dependecies automatically like yum "Fedora" or emerge "Gentoo" , does it?

No, but look into swaret, or slapt-get.
