Slackware repos?


Does Slackware have some sort of repository were I could install programs from there instead of looking for sources online?

Slackbuilds.org, Slacky.eu and LinuxPackages are probably the best known, there are others.

I personally prefer Slackbuilds.org as you get the slackbuild and source and compile it yourself. Their selection is limited at the moment compared to the other two. Slacky.eu usually provides a slackbuild, LinuxPackages only sometimes. Some packages from Slacky.eu and Linuxpackages can have unnecessary dependencies.
