Although, I haven't used Zenwalk since 5.2, but the wiki (http://wiki.zenwalk.org/index.php?ti...age_Management
) says that "some" packages can be used. Though, I don't think there would be any problems from using most slackbuilds.

Zenwalk uses a package format that is very similar to slackware, most packages you find on slackware should run on zenwalk without modifications. All Zenwalk packages are simple tar.gz-archives that can be opened and inspected via xarchiver before installing. The file install/slack-desc will contain a short description of the software contained in the package. The file doinst/doinst.sh will contain the install-script that is executed after installing. All files that are not in "install/" will be simply extracted to "/".
