  • Netpkg 7.0 : simpler, faster tool to manage packages

    Netpkg 7.0 has been released.

    Netpkg is the original network package management tool provided in Zenwalk since 2005, and was the first tool of this kind available for Slackware back in the days.

    Over the years, following users requests, netpkg has evolved into a graphical (GTK) application with CLI counterpart.

    Netpkg is Slackgnostic Wink : it work for any Slackware system.

    The CLI version has proven to be easier for the user, is faster, and requires no dependencies except bash, wget, and a few command line utilities found on any Slackware installation : so it can run in level 3 with just the "ap" packages installed (could even run from the setup from a chrooted mountpoint).

  • Flatpak is available on Zenwalk

    Flatpak is the freedesktop.org software deployment and package management standard for Linux, offering a sandbox environment in which users can run application software in isolation from the rest of the system.

    In Zenwalk : Flatpak is managed through the App Outlet application (https://app-outlet.github.io/).

    You can also browse https://flathub.org/apps, find what you're looking for (ie : VLC) and just launch "flatpak install VLC" in an unprivileged user terminal.
