I don't use checkinstall anymore because it
screwed up my filesystem on my last reinstall
of slackware so I stick to getting slackbuilds
from slackbuilds.org or rworkmans packages,
or just plain old compiling from source.
yeah I've been hearing that lately but I don't see how it does. Because it never has for me other than the non full packages. But that isn't checkinstall thats %100 Makefile.in that don't have $(DESTDIR) or ROOT root_install etc etc to be able to always track and grab all the things that were installed. Even debs fakerootdir one doesn't work on some of those packages. few rare ones that I just make the patch with DESTDIR for all of them that I can .
