Projects / GETPKG


Getpkg is used to download and install packages for Slackware Linux. It is menu-driven, allowing the user to choose program options by entering menu choices. Its menus are generated using the dialog utility. It creates the folder ~/.getpkg and stores configuration options and downloaded packages within that folder. It requires Slackware and Python.
