Random thoughts, tips & tricks about Slackware-Linux, Lego and Star Wars

Slackware Packages page updated

In preparation for the upcoming release of Slackware 13.1, I reorganized my package repository and took a moment to clean up my Slackware Packages page.

It is like 99% automated now, getting the descriptions from the slack-desc files, the category from the SlackBuilds repository (after approval), etc. Some categories I still add manually through a small text file.
I also included an md5 checksum and a gpg signature for each file. My public gpg key can be found here on my site, or automatically imported with the gpg --search-keys command.

Recently my FreeCAD and brlcad SlackBuilds were approved. I’ll move them in my local repository to the new directory and (if my scripts work correctly) they should automatically move on the packages page at the next rsync run :)
