    using other distro packages


    i got slackware installed on my laptop

    i noticed one thing particular of interest
    when i went to kpackage on kde

    where i can add/manage packages for my slackware distro
    i noticed you can use other distro packages with slackware
    especially debian and redhat

    i was wondering, is there a way, or how would i load my debian dvds on my slackware distro
    and be able to use them?

    like what would i enter in for the line on my slackware repository?\
    cdrom:// ??

    Not sure about Debian to Slack, but there are other choices for package management. Slapt-get works very well as does Cruxports4slack.

    Swaret is another package manager that works well. http://swaret.sourceforge.net/
