                            This is a very interesting howto. I will get into it more toroughly when I will have time.

                            Did you consider to give some example to convert archlinux packages too?

                            Thanks a lot bogomips.

                            francois, am pleased write-up has been of further interest. The Arch folk seem to be pretty much on the ball. They packaged the latest version from ImageMagick, which I then used for bundle I put up, and which just happen to have already documented. :)

                                    (The dashes should appear as above, so if the version has a subversion like say "1.0 RC2" make sure you use 1.0_RC2 not 1.0-RC2. The arch should be something like "i486" for example. The tag should consist of the build number and your initals, e.g. 1zb for Zaphod Beeblebrox's first build, 2zb for his second build, etc. Official slackware packages have only numbers as tags.)
