slacky.eu repository

Post by gatewayasteroid » 9. Dec 2009, 14:33

Hello,

is it safe to add and use the "slacky.eu" repository, together with the standard salix one?

Thanks

It is exactly as safe as it is for slackware.

Thanks :) I asked just to be safe, since it could happen that some packages appear on both repositories...in that case I suppose I had to choose the one I like, isn't it? :)

Thanks again

Yes. You could also set repository priorities in a way that packages from salix are always preferred over ones from slacky.eu or the other way around.

And since you're saying that you have slackware 13.0 installed (in the other thread) you can safely add the salix repository there too (more safely that the slacky repository if you ask me :D)

Yes, I have Slack 13 now, I was a Zenwalk user (it was called minislack :) ) but I didn't like when it stopped to be 100% backwards Slackware compatible...now I found Salix :)

I will switch very soon, maybe tonight :)

Apparently it's safe. Just don't expect things to actually install.
