Slackware and Slackbuilds are a partnership that many Slackware users rely on. Slackbuilds.org is similar to the AUR that Arch Linux enjoys, but for some reason we don’t hear that much about it.
Just like the AUR, Slackbuilds.org gives Slackware users access to a vast quantity of packages and in many ways it is similar in how a user manages it. Build scripts can be downloaded from the repo and used to compile source code, or we can use helper programmes such as
sbopkg and sbotools to automate the process – and even include dependency checking.
In this video I take you through how I use slackbuilds to add packages to my system.
I hope you enjoy the video 🙂
