SlackWare-Current & maintenance

Hello all!!

I just installed slackware-current and it works great,
however I wonder ..

how do I do to upgrade it ... is there some similar feature to RH's up2date so I don't have to download it all and do new installations all the time

I'm a slackware newbie and it is probably a stupid question ..
but still ..

grateful for any help..

I'm also running slackware-current, and a relative newbie to the system, but I found a great utility to keep things current.

Just go to and search for a utility called swaret. It was formerly called autopkg.

Installing and configuring it is very simple.

good luck!
