For installing packages...files that end in .tgz
a great resource is www.linuxpackages.net but it's best to get packages off the slackware website (www.slackware.com) cause of possible dependency problems...I have had a couple of problems especially install gaim 1.1.1.
I have an interesting quirk with gaim. it won't sign on unless i sign in with aim first and then i can use gaim. btw they make aim for linux...but don't unless of course gaim does not work.
a wierd thing right now is when i every i hit the ' key a stupid find search bar pops up. hmm...
