slack and netpkg


I really like slack and have tried 9 and 10 before, for a while.
At the moment I'm very happy with my Deb setup, but I'm curious to know if
anyone uses netpkg with their slackbox and how they find it.

The OP should get the source, compile a Slackpack, and get someone (even himself) to try it out.

I only ask, becuase I noticed on the NetBSD site, that you can use netpkg with slackware and
thought there might be a few people using it ?

If you can disable the dependency checks I could see perhaps considering it, but at that point I am unclear how it is much different from something like slapt-get.

Holly Crap!

What sense makes to respond to a post made by someone in January 2006, roughly 14 years and half, ago?

Maybe Jean-Philippe didn't realize that this thread was so old. What puzzles me more is it took him that much time to answer, knowing that he is the author of netpkg. Maybe that's because he registered to LQ only a few years ago

I'm more curios what happened to the OP. Have they found the answer to their question? Are they still using Slackware?

No, I doubt that this one ever arrived to use Slackware. Look for him in the Debian forums.
