Something you might find interesting (or not).

I get patches from Oregon State University Open Source Lab using wget:
Code:
wget ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1/patches/packages/php*
Just used the above earlier this morning; it gets
Code:
ls -1 php*
php-5.4.26-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txt
php-5.4.26-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz
php-5.4.26-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz.asc
(I keep all patches in /usr/local/patches).

To get all available patches, get into a directory and
Code:
wget ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1/patches/packages/*
That won't get the kernel patches directory, you need to create the directory (mkdir linux-3.10.17-2/), cd into it and add the directory name to the packages path:
Code:
wget ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.1/patches/packages/linux-3.10.17-2/*
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.

The simplest way is either by using slackpkg or using this (go for "Watching for Updated Packages)

Thanks to all! Never had this problem before. It's great to have reliable backup, just in case.
