slack and netpkg


I really like slack and have tried 9 and 10 before, for a while.
At the moment I'm very happy with my Deb setup, but I'm curious to know if
anyone uses netpkg with their slackbox and how they find it.

The OP should get the source, compile a Slackpack, and get someone (even himself) to try it out.

I only ask, becuase I noticed on the NetBSD site, that you can use netpkg with slackware and
thought there might be a few people using it ?

If you can disable the dependency checks I could see perhaps considering it, but at that point I am unclear how it is much different from something like slapt-get.
