Hey Benny!

BP> slackware just miss gentoo portage

I've never heard anyone using slackware ever complain about the lack of
proprietary apps before.

BP> revdep-rebuild comes handy on brokken slackpkg

How so? I've never used slackpkg and have never heard of revdep-rebuild before
now. Personally I prefer slackware pkg format to deb, rpm, whatever, given
that it requires no additional tools to deal with it. tar and xz these days is
all it takes, although mc for browsing tarballs is a nice touch.

Life is good,
