Suggest best sites for Slackware packages.
 
Hi, i am new to slackware and in order to work with it i frequently need packages to download and install.

I already got few sites as ,

http://slackbuilds.org/
http://sotirov-bg.net/slackpack/
http://pkgs.org/slackware-14.0/slackware-x86_64/

Is there any other best link to find slackware packages? Do tell.

I have never done but I hear you can use the Salix OS repos. And for sure every Slackware user knows about AlienBobs slackbuilts you should post this questions on the Slackware section on this site.

Good luck to you

I fully trust in the SlackBuilds provided by http://slackbuilds.org and packages provided by AlienBOB http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ and Robby Workman http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/ who are major Slackware's contributors.

Rule of thumb :
(1) never ever install a Slackware package if you don't know who is the packager.
(2) never ever install a Slackware package if the SlackBuild for it is not available.

I would check that before using the two last links you provided.

I would also like to put in my vote of confidence for Eric and Robby's packages. They are our Slackware developers and their packages are trusted. I've run their packages for years.
