Slackware Packages

I have compiled and made the following Slackware packages available for convenience. I make no guarantee about their performance or security. It is possible that installation, use or uninstallation could permanently and irreversably destroy your computer, erase all your data, burn your toast and report your mp3 collection to the RIAA. You have been warned. Personally, I've had no problems with these packages I've compiled on my systems. They fully pass the "It works for me" test.

Each packages was built from the unmodified source code found at various locations on the internet - generally at the listed home page.

License information for each package can generally be found in the documentation located in the install directory under /usr/doc/<application_name>.

Many more packages can be found at LinuxPackages.net
