Well then, you need to practice looking

irssi is in Slackware: http://slackware.org.uk/slackware/sl...5-x86_64-7.txz
*Always* do a full install of Slackware if you are a beginner (this should be Rule 4 1/2)

gkrellm is in SlackBuilds.org: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...search=gkrellm

Excellent, you are right, goodness knows what was in my head, but what came out on the keyboard was drivel. I'll edit it thanks!

Doesn't sound like gkrellm to me, more like a plug-in.
"gkrellm-volume is a plugin for gkrellm-2 that lets you control
your sound mixer.."

I apologise: gkrellm itself, like irssi, is in Slackware, so you should already have it.
http://slackware.org.uk/slackware/sl...5-x86_64-2.txz

As I say, you need to practice looking for yourself...

Thank you.
Did a couple of searches but found nothing that indicated that it was pre-installed.

Assuming you made a full installation, try this:
Code:
whereis gkrellm
whereis irssi
Under the same assumption, to check that a file be shipped in Slackware type:
Code:
grep <filename> /var/log/{packages,scripts}/*
Even better, use the Packages Browser.

Perhaps you should also look at slackpkg. It's on the slackware installation DVD, so you might have it already. It's in the "ap" set.
