properly building slackware packages


I've read the docs from linuxpackages.net and if I want to install a package but change the symlinks what do i do?

like sometimes the symlinks will refer to a file in the /opt directory after the package is installed.


any tips to make buildilng slack packages easier and keeping my system clean or any tools that will make package management in slack a bit easier?

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Are you referring to the links 'makepkg' creates in the install/doinstall.sh? You can just open it up and modify as desired.
