    new to Slack


    I just installed Slack, and now I have a few questions........
    Mainly... how do I add software to my system???
    In debian it was easy but with Slack, I have no clue.
    Also, How do I get a 2.6 kernel???

    The kernel:

    kernel.org

    To install, and manage packages:

    pkg-tool
    And also:

    installpkg, removepkg

    Slackware uses the .tgz, and to install is just installpkg, or,
    Code:
    tar xzvf package.tgz -C /
    But use the pkg-tool, anyway, swaret makes it all easy Just like apt

    There is a 2.6.10 kernel on the 2nd Slackware install CD under /testing, just follow the README to upgrade it. Or you can build your own kernel from kernel.org.
