upgrade rsync branch:

install xxHash:
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware ... /l/xxHash/

install lz4:
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware ... rce/l/lz4/

install popt:
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware ... ce/l/popt/

install zstd:
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware ... ce/l/zstd/

upgrade rsync:
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware ... e/n/rsync/

more fun, with thunar custom action add: zenity --width=600 --height=150 --info --title="Check xxxh128sum" --text="$(xxh128sum %f)"

xxxh128sum is 10x more fast but if you like md5sum:
zenity --width=600 --height=150 --info --title="Check md5" --text="$(md5sum %f)"

It's not a good idea to mix packages from different releases. Especially if they are so far apart between them as 14.2 and 15.0 are. Sooner of later you'll end up with something completely broken.

This is the build links not the bin (I think it's really more secure than rpm fusion, arch aur, ubuntu ppa...)
The people who complicate them will be able to follow the slackware15.0 security channel in case of vce.
Remember what you did with engrampa, sometimes the profit is so much higher that we can get out of the official Slackware64 14.2 repositories.

but yes you are right it can be dangerous.
