In porteus, asdide from the native slackware's package management (installpkg, updatepkg, etc) are includedo some more CLI tools (es. slapt-get?)

and what are, if any, GUI graphical package managers? (es. somethin like synaptic and so on)

sorry, they're kinda stupid questions, but you never know... :shock: :shock:

Our GUI package manager is Porteus Package Manager, which can be accessed from the menu in any desktop environment (KDE, lxde, trinity or xfce) under the "System" heading. It has tools to download porteus modules from our repo, and will also find, download and convert packages from third party repositories.

From the commandline, slackyd is included by default. run 'slackyd' without any arguments for the list of options, but to get started, try:

slackyd -u
to update the package database, then:

slackyd -s packagename
to search for a package, and:

slackyd -g packagename
to download the .txz package. It will be placed in /var/slackyd, and you can use the commandline utility 'txz2xzm' to convert it into a porteus module.
