Although, I haven't used Zenwalk since 5.2, but the wiki ( says that "some" packages can be used. Though, I don't think there would be any problems from using most slackbuilds.

The file install/slack-desc will contain a short description of the software contained in the package. The file doinst/ will contain the install-script that is executed after installing. All files that are not in "install/" will be simply extracted to "/".
