Trying to upgradepkg mdadm
On my 10.2 Slackware install, the command 'mdadm --version' returns v2.1. I tried to upgrade this (the procedure seemed so trivial).

1. I downloaded mdadm-2.5.3.tgz
2. I renamed mdadm-2.5.3.tgz to mdadm.tgz
3. I ran 'upgradepkg --verbose mdadm'

This removed mdadm 2.1 from my system, but failed to install v2.5.3. I tried 'installpkg mdadm.tgz' then, but it just copied the files to /mdadm-2.5.3/, but mdadm is still not working.

How does one upgrade packages in Slackware without breaking things?

Am I stupid or what?

tar zxvf mdadm-2.5.3.tgz
make install

Did everything. I'm so silly.
