3rd Party Repos and Sharing Your Homemade Slackware Packages


Hey gang
So, half the fun of running Slackware is how easy it is to make Slackware packages from source!

I know there are many, many unofficial Slackware repos, and please add to these if you know of more...

SlackBuilds (of course)
http://slackbuilds.org/

slkbuild
http://freshmeat.net/projects/slkbuild

src2pkg
http://www.src2pkg.net/

David Woodfalls (dive) page
http://www.dawoodfall.net/

Ponce's repo
http://slackware.ponce.cc/blog/

Slacky
http://www.slacky.eu/

linuxpackages
http://www.linuxpackages.net/

SalixOS repo
http://download.salixos.org/

Absolute Linux repo
http://www.absolutelinux.org/

Robby's site
http://rlworkman.net/

goblins site
http://connie.slackware.com/~mrgoblin/

learnix
http://learnix.net/slackware/

EDIT:
Slamd64
http://mirrors-sanfrancisco.hostgis.com/slamd64/

BlueWhite64
http://packages.bluewhite64.com:8080/

Superb-Mini-Server (formerly slack-mini-server)
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/

Slackware.org.uk
http://www.slackware.org.uk/

I'm sure there are others also....?

Anyway; the point of this thread is make Slacker's aware of what 3rd party repos there are
And

for normal users to show off their own homemade apps/utilities, etc

Anyone can use free file sharing services to use so others can download
their builds/packages, etc

So, I have a few apps that I made for myself on my various (6) slackware/slackware64 installs over 2 pc's...

Here they are; Please read the readme there about post-install steps and info!
Their all great apps I think...especially DungeonCrawl!
http://multidistro.com/downloads/Apps/slackpkgs.html

Note that ranger, pcmanfm-mod, systray-volume-control, mirage, alsa-equalizer and alsamixergui
will be in all four of the next nFluxOS versions (arch testing/debian sid/slackware current/ubuntu ,eerkat)

Thanks for the list.

One quick note: src2pkg isn't a repository, it's a tool for creating packages.

The only three repositories I use anymore are Eric's (Alien Bob), Robby's, and Slackbuilds.org (usually through the Sbopkg utility).

I may check out some of the other ones.

Regards,
