Talking swaret! keep your slackware system up to date easily. VERY NICE PROGRAM

For all of you people that don't know about this program yet. Swaret is a new program for slackware avaliable off of any currently updated slackware ftp mirror. Its in the slackware-current/extras folder.

Its very easy to use, and great for updating your entire system pretty fast.

just install the .tgz and type

swaret --upgrade


swaret --update

hope this helps some people!

Maybe you mean a new release of Swaret? (since 1.3.1 came out Saturday)

And in case anyone is looking for it, here's the project homepage:
