Slackware Linux stuff

This page allows you to download some of my software that is (in some fashion) related to or for use with the Slackware Linux distribution.

You can find the port of Slackware ARM here

 slacktrack   Download

slacktrack is a tool to assist with building Slackware packages from the <package>.build scripts that can be found in the distribution source tree.

It can also be used to build packages where Makefile does not honour any DESTDIR type variable, and enables end-users to create packages more easily.

 ipacct Architecture Download

ipacct is a Linux Kernel module (patch) and userland configuration tool for monitoring and reporting bandwidth use on a per Unix uid basis.
This Kernel patch has proved itself in production use for over a year now but comes with no guarantee !

Please note that ipacct is no longer being actively maintained and will not be formally released.  However, if it is found not to work with newer Kernels, there is a chance that it will be updated.

i486 ipacct-1.08-i486-4.tgz
Source ipacct-1.08-source.tar.gz


 /usr/sbin/adduser Architecture Download

adduser script for Slackware Linux.

This is always the latest version of adduser (and should be in sync with slackware-current). It also appears in gentoo as superadduser.
