Something you might find interesting (or not).
I get patches from Oregon State University Open Source Lab using wget
Just used the above earlier this morning; it gets
ls -1 php*
(I keep all patches in /usr/local/patches
To get all available patches, get into a directory and
That won't get the kernel patches directory, you need to create the directory (mkdir linux-3.10.17-2/
into it and add the directory name to the packages
There might be a simpler way to do that but it's what I do.
OSU has really-go-fast servers (doesn't load down the Slackware server) and they maintain all active Slackware versions: source, packages, patches, etc.
Good place to get the stuff you need in one go.
Hope this helps some.
