Slackpack SLAX modules.

Lately I was checking the statistics of Slackpack’s site, and I can see that alot of users clicked on Slackpack 1.1.8 module (.lzm) for SLAX,

I’ve stopped using SLAX for a while now, so I cant maintain any .lzm modules for Slackpack, if anyone would like to contribute and make an .lzm module for Slackpack newest version 1.1.9
-and for the upcoming versions if you want-

feel free to do it and let me know to publish it on the Downloads page.... read more

Slackpack for the new Slackware 13.0

As of 28-08-2009 the development of the new version of Slackpack for Slackware 13.0 has started :)

the next version will include major upgrades coz the new Slackware 13.0 will come with KDE 4.2.4 and a new(!) .txz package format, this means that ill have to upgrade the hole Slackpack UI from qt3 to qt4 and make Slackpack compatible with .txz, i didnt have the change to test the Slackware 13.0 yet but im downloading the .iso now so it wont last long before i start coding again! :)

New version comming...

A new version of slackpack is currently working, the next version will include a "Create Package" future.
You will be able to create Slackware Linux .tgz packages.
Slackpack will use the default "makepkg" command of Slackware linux to succeed that.

In other words it will just simpify the process needed for creating a package manually using "makepkg" command.
