In case anyone is interested - I have installed Salix so many times lately (what with the new release, and two motherboard upgrades) I got sick of repeating the same configuration steps. So I just bundled most of it up in a tarball and made a package. User-specific things (such as .pinerc) get put in /etc/skel/home, and there's a message in the package desc reminding me of a correct command to copy them to ~/

So everything from my customised SLKBUILDS (as generated by slkbuild -g) to .ratpoisonrc is already there.

I'm thinking of adding a script to do some other chores like hooking wicd up to the right ESSID and creating Privoxy's user and group (which I always have to look up at Then this script could even install some things I like to have around (such as rlwrap and par).

Clearly, this isn't a package I'll be uploading to my Salix repo ;)
