    You can also use Gentoo's portage system (called 'emerde' in Slack).
    http://emerde.freaknet.org/

    It took me some time to make it fully work though...

    Isn't it too difficult to do that with some sensible packages like the glibc for example?

    Kernel and glibc are the things that are difficult to upgrade using a packagemanager. When changes happen to these packages the slackware security mailing has instructions how to do that using the standard pkgtools.

    But automated tools like swaret will sometimes go wrong with these changes, especially when someone upgrades without thinking/reading changelogs first.

    I've seen many examples of this on various Linux forums, that's why I don't use and don't like them. But that's my opinion.
    I\'m so tired .....

    hmmm they all sound nice.
    Gonne take a look at them.
    I currently use : slack-check.
    I use an old version 3.1, Think a newer version can be found on the internet.
