You'll want to add a script something like the following to crontab, probably by executing "crontab -e": This inferno.bioinformatics server is one i've found to be fairly reliable..even have -current isos if what one really wants is a fresh install off a CD!The script just syncs that directory on their server with /mnt/mirror/slackware on the target server...obviously this will probably be different on your server.After install, you need to select ONE (and ONLY one) mirror to download packages from.Edit your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and uncomment one of those lines or include your own mirror.Only FTP and HTTP mirrors are supported at the moment.Once you have selected a mirror, type: Slackpkg has many features, including search and automatic download and install or upgrade. Basically you need to follow just two steps to do that. You have four choices: (K)eep the old files and consider files later (O)verwrite all old files with the new ones.
Slackpkg is a tool for installing or upgrading packages through a network.
Get the slapt-get package for your version of Slackware.
Once it's installed, configure it to point to your favourite mirror (edit /etc/slapt-get/slaptgetrc) # See /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.10.1/example.slapt-getrc # for example source entries and configuration hints.
Therefore, it may contain broken links, out-dated or misleading content, or information that is just plain wrong. One of the first steps I perform after installing slackware is to run Slackpkg.
Slackpkg is a very powerful utility that allows you to update your installed packages with the most recent version in the slackware release tree.
