installpkg and upgradepkg in salix are wrappers for spkg. You can see for yourself if you open them with a text editor. The original slackware installpkg and upgradepkg are names slack-installpkg and slack-upgradepkg respectively, if you need them.
Indeed I noticed they are much faster and I was wondering if they actually work as the impression was that operation that takes several seconds and a few lines of output in Slackware in Salix took one second without much noisethenktor wrote:They should work like the original tools. What is different for you? Our pkgtools are much faster than the original ones
The difference if for example when I`m installing a package that was already installed Salix complains, but that`s not a problem.
I also noticed this difference. But for this special particular time, you could force it or use slack-installpkgwitek wrote:The difference if for example when I`m installing a package that was already installed Salix complains, but that`s not a problem.
