Decent slack packages from Italian slackware site


Over the past few weeks I've gotten several pre-compiled Slackware packages from slacky.it, an Italian slackware site. The packages are up-to-date, and the site seems to have some things before you'll find them elsewhere. For example, I've just gotten Evolution 2.2.1.1 from there and it installed without a hitch and runs fine. Evolution has increasingly become a pain to build yourself, but slacky.it has a "megapack" with the newest builds of all the required libraries, etc. They've got a lot more besides.

Check it out. You might even pick up a little Italian along the way (a little of the language, I mean ;-} ).

Hi guys,
slacky.it it's the best italian site for slackware! Packages are always up to date with the newest version of software, and you can find more ten the simple package,like linux pakcages. On slacky.it you can dowlload the source code and the slackbuild so you can compile and make the package, for your cpu! Language it's not a problem, i don't speek english very well, but if you post your problem in english, we will help you! Have a nice day

The program launches with "evolution-2.2". If the directory where it lives isn't in your path, try "/usr/local/bin/evolution-2.2".

Or it might be "evolution-2.0". I'm not at my regular post right now, so I can't verify.
