I can only take this as an insult, as you were provided with at least two ways to make it work in that other thread.

Or maybe what is meant is that slacky.eu packages maybe 'safe' to install but not always feasible (due to looser packaging rules)?

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

After having some problems with dependencies from slack.eu I only download them and install them with installpkg.

I have got other repositorys in my /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
like

SOURCE=http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/13.0/
SOURCE=http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/

but I first do "slapt-get -s -i packagename" to simulate.
