LXer: Getting what you want on Arch and Slackware - AUR and Slackbuilds

Published at LXer:

Package management on Linux systems has always been the subject of endless discussions, flamefests and bickering. Nonetheless, regardless of what one prefers, there's something for everyone, if not in distro X, then maybe in distro Y. Some swear by binary package management, others say that the only true way is compilation from source. Today we will focus on two distributions that offer the best of both worlds : Arch Linux and Slackware.
