Announcing the availability of my repository of slackware packages
Some time ago I started making a slackware package repository for software I need in my systems not included in the core. I spent some time getting processes in place and getting used to them. By now, those are all fairly settled and I feel confident in letting other people know about them.
First off, however, there’s some caveats. The repository is currently based on -current, and for x86_64 only. I have no interest in making a 32bit repo as the overhead would just be too big. I have no more 32bit systems in use, so testing would also be too limited.
I also can’t guarantee that the packages will always work on the very latest version of -current. I maintain these in my free time and there’s just not enough of that to keep up with every single update to -current. This is especially true for packages dependent on the kernel. That said, I will do my best to not keep packages broken for too long, when that happens.
With those caveats out of the way, you can find the repository here:
It also works great with
slackpkg+, just add this to your
Here’s some of the (IMHO) highlights you can find in the repo:
- various php extensions (imagick, xdebug, http, etc)
- amarok (qt5)
