3rd Party Repos and Sharing Your Homemade Slackware Packages

Hey gang
So, half the fun of running Slackware is how easy it is to make Slackware packages from source!

I know there are many, many unofficial Slackware repos, and please add to these if you know of more...

SlackBuilds (of course)



David Woodfalls (dive) page

Ponce's repo



SalixOS repo

Absolute Linux repo

Robby's site

goblins site




Superb-Mini-Server (formerly slack-mini-server)

I'm sure there are others also....?

Anyway; the point of this thread is make Slacker's aware of what 3rd party repos there are

for normal users to show off their own homemade apps/utilities, etc

Anyone can use free file sharing services to use so others can download
their builds/packages, etc

So, I have a few apps that I made for myself on my various (6) slackware/slackware64 installs over 2 pc's...

Here they are; Please read the readme there about post-install steps and info!
Their all great apps I think...especially DungeonCrawl!

Note that ranger, pcmanfm-mod, systray-volume-control, mirage, alsa-equalizer and alsamixergui
will be in all four of the next nFluxOS versions (arch testing/debian sid/slackware current/ubuntu ,eerkat)

Thanks for the list.

One quick note: src2pkg isn't a repository, it's a tool for creating packages.

The only three repositories I use anymore are Eric's (Alien Bob), Robby's, and (usually through the Sbopkg utility).

I may check out some of the other ones.
