fluxbox and slackpkg question


Hey.

I recently noticed that a tool called slackpkg exists. Apprently one can install, upgrade and remove packages with it. My question is then, is there any reason for me to use this tool rather than pkgtool? As far as I know pkgtool does the job just fine and, again, as far as I know, the only difference between to two of them is the fact that slackpkg is capable of fetching packages form ftp and http. So, any reason, besides that, I should consider using it?

My question conserning fluxbox is of another matter. Almost immediately after installing Slackware 10 I installed a fluxbox 0.9.10 package found at linuxpackages.net instead of the "stock version". However, every time after exiting X I see following warning:

*** WARNING: 'Workspace<n>' actions are deprecated! Use 'Workspace <n>' instead ***

This is a rather recent slack install, only a few days old. On the old installation I did not get this warning, though it was the exact same fluxbox package I installed. I think I might have screwed it up myself by running the stock version prior to installing the newer one, but I honestly cannot remember for sure. Any ideas or advice, anyone?

Thanks.

Regards.

Sounds like it might be a typo in the config file -notice the syntax difference above.

It appears to be caused by the /usr/X11R6/share/fluxbox/keys. After having editing the file to refelct the syntax above (for the default Fx hotkeys) the problem seems the be solved. Thanks.

BTW, slackpkg uses the pkgtools to do its' work.

Is that so? Hmm..... I really cannot think of any reason to use slackpkg then.
