a gui for the Slackware tools. :)

well...for those who like it, there's a gui for the tools like pkgtool, liloconfig.......
nothing changes exept you can use it in your gui with the mouse.

if you want to try....

first get it here...

compile it as root.

to install: ( workdir=/.../Xdialog-2.1.2/src )
-#mv /bin/dialog /bin/dialog.slack
-#cp Xdialog /bin/dialog

and try pkgtool.

No need to compile it as root, just do
export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin

before make

yip, but su/passwd. is less typing
and you can " exit" without having " sbin's" in your path.
