* Choose default repositories you need to work from file '/etc/slpkg/repositories.conf' default
is 'slack' and 'sbo' repositories and read REPOSITORIES file for each of the particularities.
If a repository is not in the above list, manage custom repositories with commands 'repo-add'
and 'repo-remove'.


Usage
-----

Need to run '# slpkg update' for the first time to synchronize the list of packages,
also every time you add a new repository.
To add or remove repositories must edit the file '/etc/slpkg/repositories.conf' or
run '# slpkg repo-enable' (python2-pythondialog required).

Add custom repositories with the command '# slpkg add-repo <repository name=""> <url>' and after
run '# slpkg update' to update package list.

View list of repositories with command '# slpkg repo-list' or get repository information with
command '# slpkg repo-info <repository>.

Update slpkg itself simply run '# slpkg update slpkg', and slpkg check from GitHub repository if
new versions are available.

Checking packages health with command "# slpkg health" and slpkg check if files missing from
package file list.

Print dependencies status used by packages with command '# slpkg deps-status' or drawing image
map dependencies with additional option '--graph=[image]'.

Manage .new configuration files with command 'slpkg new-config' like remove, overwrite, merge etc.

If you have already downloaded the script and the source code you can build the package with
the command '# slpkg <script.tar.gz> <sources>'.

Manage packages in the black list with the command '# slpkg -b <packages> --add or --remove'.

Add SBo packages to queue with command '# slpkg -q <packages> --add or --remove' and manage as
build, install or build and install with command '# slpkg build or install or build-install'.
This is very useful if you want to install multiple packages together suffice to add in the right
order if there are dependent packages.

View list of packages from specific repository with command '# slpkg -l <repository>'.
Combine with the command 'grep' to catch the results you want.

Check and upgrade your distribution or upgrade your packages with command '# slpkg -c <repository>
--upgrade'. Don't forget to update packages list before (for 'slack' repository it is not necessary).
This command except upgrade packages will fix packages with broken dependencies. Switch off automatic
resolve dependencies with additional option '--resolve-off'. Use '--checklist' option to help you
to choose easy packages. For advanced users, option '--skip' give them more power (see man page).

The most famous command is '# slpkg -s <repository> <packages>' , this command downloads and
installs packages with resolve all the dependencies or switch off resolve with additional option
'--resolve-off'. Also additional option "--case-ins" help you find packages with case insensitive.
Two new arguments will help you to rebuild '--rebuild' or reinstall '--reinstall' packages.
The last one argument "--patches" help you to switch in the patches/ directory only for slack
repository.

Tracking the dependencies of a package with command '# slpkg -t <repository> <package>'.
Displays a package dependency tree and also tells you which ones are installed on your system events.
Check if packages used from other packages with additional option '--check-deps' or drawing image
map dependencies with additional option '--graph=[image]'.

Get information description of a package with command '# slpkg -p <repository> <package>' and change
color text with additional flag '--color=[]'.

View a page SBo package on your terminal with command '# slpkg -n <package>' and then manage multiple
choices such read, download, build, install etc.

If you want to find packages from all repositories, this command will solve your hands '# slpkg -F
<packages>'. It will search in all enabled repositories will find the configuration file
'/etc/slpkg/repositories.conf' will print all the packages that match the description that you enter.

If you want to see if any packages are installed on your system enter the command '# slpkg -f <packages>'.
The surprise in the end is the reporting of packages sum and size found.

The next four commands '# slpkg --installpkg, --upgradepkg, --removepkg <packages>' install, upgrade,
remove packages from your system events.
Notable mention must give the command '# slpkg --removepkg <packages>' which can remove a packages
with all dependencies together after editing configuration file '/etc/slpkg/slpkg.conf'
(default is disable) or add additional option "--deps". Also you can check if packages used as
dependency with additional option
"--check-deps". Option "--tag" allow to remove packages with by TAG.
Optional you can use dialog utility with additional option "--checklist" (require python2-pythondialog).

The last command is useful to print the entire contents of a package installed on the system with the
command '# slpkg -d <packages>'.

Some examples you will see below.


Issues
------

Please report any bugs in `ISSUES <https: github.com="" dslackw="" slpkg="" issues="">`_


Testing
-------

The majority of trials have been made in an environment Slackware x86_64 'stable'
and x86 'current' version 14.2.


Slackware Current

.. code-block:: bash

$ slpkg -g edit


Slackware ARM
-------------

Must use only two repositories currently there 'slack' and 'sbo'.


Slackware Mirrors

Searching for symbolic links:

No symbolic links were found, so we wont make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n
