using older slackware package for newer slackware. Is it problematic?


As you can see on the subject.

For example, I use slack 10.2 and I want to use dosemu. But after seeing in linuxpackages.net dosemu only avaliable until 10.1. Can I use that dosemu package for my 10.2 ? WIll there be any problem arised ?

thx.

That's the beauty of Slackware packages. Most of them will work across versions.

Try it and see. If it doesn't work, you can always remove it...
