Either buy a DVD on the Slackware store or use the slackpkg method. To know more, type "man slackpkg" then read this how-to on SlackDocs.

PS Preferably use only Slackware tools to manage your distribution, at least till you have a thorough understanding of Slackware internals, that are very different of that of other distributions. You'll save yourself a lot of hassle.

PPS Sorry I made a mistake in quoting myself instead of editing previous post.

Thanks a lot for your help and advice!
especially the systemupgrade Doc!
I will try to follow the suggestions


It seems like I am getting too Slack here.

RTFM to me. Marking the thread as solved.

Just download the packages from any mirror you want, you can use wget, ftp or rsync for that. For example, this will download the whole tree for Slackware64 -current from my mirror to the current directory, using rsync:
Code:
rsync -a slackeee.de::slackware/slackware64-current/ .
