slackpkg+ 0.9.1

As zerouno mentioned here, a new version of slackpkg+ is available. From it’s website:

The Slackpkg+ project is a simple plugin that allow the user to add third-party repositories to slackpkg so to use a single tool for keep update the slackware installation and to install non-official packages.

I downloaded it from here, and upgraded my previous installation with

upgradepkg slackpkg+-0.9.1-noarch-2mt.txz

Then, I made sure to use the new configuration file in stead of the old one. First backup:

mv /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf.old

And then use the new one:

mv /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf.new /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf

Then I edited /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf to my needs and made an update as it is recommended on slackpkg+’s website:

slackpkg update gpg
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all

I made sure to not upgrade AlienBob’s multilib gcc-* and glibc-* with Slackware64’s default ones.
Great!
