Installing packages in Salix

Gslapt is a nice addition to working in the terminal and sourcery is nice for working with Slackbuilds. The best program seems for those sbopkg as it gives you a lot of information about available packages and available uploads and more.
Sbopkg can be found at http://code.google.com/p/sbopkg/ Download the latest version (sbopkg-version-noarch-1.tgz) to your Desktop. Open a terminal: and do as root: # installpkg sbopkg-version-noarch.
Dependency handling or better the lack of it is the big drawback of Slackware and stability seems less than in Debian or Arch.
