    sites with .pkg files


    having finally just gotten my internet working properly in Slackware...

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any links onhand where I can find some slackware .tgz files to use pkgtool with?

    (I know that some programs, such as gtk-gnutella, are easily installed using this feature)

    and, while I'm at it....

    I'm wanting to listen to an Audio CD.... I've heard I need to mount my CD rom drives first, how do I go about this?

    check out www.linuxpackages.net that is where you will find a good repository of tars that are for the slackware package tool. They are crosslisted both by type of app and by the version of slackware they are for...

    good luck

    You could also try slapt-get. Its like the debian apt-get. Though the repository has only few packages

    You don't need to mount audio cds. The player will pick them up automatically.

    To mount data files

    mount /mnt/yyy

    where /mnt/yyy is your target or original node as described in /etc/fstab.

    FYI, same with DVDs.
