DKMS in Slackware


Hi,
I have a device driver which is DKMS compliant binary RPM package for Linux.

I am using Slackware and rpm support is already in there, but I am confuse with DKMS, I have no experience to that. So My question is, can I install that driver in my slackware 10.1 box? Please help.

use rpm2tgz to convert the rpm into a tgz and then do installpkg filename.tgz from root and it should work!
