sbopkg is a great tool, makes managing software easier on slackware.
I have to remind myself to edit the slackbuild scripts for some custom options. But it's not too way off from the actual process of installing by source (you have to unrar the source, check the configure options, manually include it in the script etc etc). It's normal though, just the way the scripts are meant to operate, installing using default or pre-selected options.
A few suggestions for sbopkg :
- include an option to uninstall packages in the "List installed packages" section. That should make sbopkg complete in a sense, just like the ability to restore sets in a backup application.
- include an option to rename scripts which have been edited, saving in another location other than the default (1 copy of local). I just have to remember the name of the script and don't have to go through diff. Package tag similar to the name of the edited script would be added bonus.
Overall, it's an awesome utility. I'm using it now!
