Which pkgtool ? ? I don't think, it's mentioned ?

If you mean the "pkgtool" from Slackware it is here
ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slac...0-noarch-7.tgz
> pkgtools-12.1.0-noarch-7.tgz = the "binary package"

And the source code
ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slac...ce/a/pkgtools/
In fact it's just some scripts. But useful.

Thank you, that's what I was searching for.... slackware website is temporarily not working(to download packages). I want to install pkgtool(slackware) for my LFS build(chapter 6).

I'm very happy to thank you as 500th person. Linux newbies(like me) always need help from the senior members(like you)... Keep it up
