Do you have a very slow internet connection? That oxygen-icons-4.8.4-i486-1.txz package is 29 MB in size, perhaps it is just taking long to download.
Will I end up with a broken system if I stop it and the computer is not even going to boot in slackware if I interrupt it?
script just downloads packages and creates a local mirror of a Slackware repository. It does not install
any package. So, it is safe to abort the script and resume it at any later time. The script will pick up where you aborted it.
If you want a progress indicator, you can run the script as follows after you abort the one which is running now, and start again:
