AutoPKG


Hi there!
I remember that one time here at the Slackware forum ,in the thread: "How Slackware is develop?" Aussie said about a tool called: AutoPKG. I've downloaded it and must say that this is quite a nice tool. But I have a question about it. I would like to know can I update KDE and Qt through it and will everything be fine or there might be catastrofic consequences and I should better download and install everything by hand? Thanks in advance!

Nautilus - Try this URL http://autopkg.unixpert.be

Wonderpun, if you are planning to use AutoPkg regularly I would refrain from upgrading packages independently of Slackware. The packages are built and installed for a standard Slack install. If you upgrade a package and it gets move to the package author's default you might have problems with a Slack package after that. Anyway, something to consider.
