Question about installpkg
 
Is there away to install a list of packages besides of typing "installpkg *.tgz" can I use a packagelist like installpkg "packagelist" *tgz?

Slackpkg will do that.

Quote:

slackpkg <command> {PATTERN|FILE}
PATTERN can be a package name, or just part of package name. It can be a software series, too (like kde, a, ap, ...). FILE is a file with a list of PATTERNs inside, either one per line or several per line with spaces as separators.
Slackpkg can automate updates was well. It's in the Extras directory on the CD.

If all the packages you want to install are in one directory you could use pkgtool also.

Couldn't you just do the following using installpkg:
Code:

$ for i in `cat packagelist`; do installpkg $i; done
where packagelist contains the filenames of the packages you wish to install (including the .tgz extension), one package per line? If you want to omit the .tgz extension you could do the following:
Code:

$ for i in `cat packagelist`; do installpkg $i.tgz; done
You could also specify a directory containing the packages etc. using similar modifications.

If you use KDE, Kpackage also gives a list of installed packages.

Hi,

If I understand your question then tagfiles would be the way for you use the installpkg with a list of packages.

The package management reference is for 10.2 but still applicable.
