I was wondering, since bt2 is based on slackware, can I use swaret to upgrade/install my packages?
I've used installpkg and updatepkg to upgrade some of the packages and I've had no problems whatsoever. Just remember though, just because BT2 is based on Slackware doesn't mean that it will necessary always work.
personaly i use gslapt the gui by creator of slapt-get .... installed in bt2 default install
most of pkg works with none or little paths modification...........
we do need a pkg repository........dedicated to bt.......and i can code the gui........could be useful.........
Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD

I have used slapt-get on a few occasions myself without any problems.
If you are successful in this, put here your swaret.conf config file
I can say the same. A bt package depository would be nice, though. Of course, since most of the additional packages that make BT so great were built from source, the included slackware depository is probably sufficient.I have used slapt-get on a few occasions myself without any problems.
I run slack on my laptop. I used slapt-get to upgrade to current from 11.0 shortly after installing it. I also have slack on an older desktop. I've only installed security upgrades to 11.0 on it. I recently added current to slapt-getrc and was going to upgrade. The list was so long it was scary. You just know something is going to break. I'll probably try it when I've got some time, but I'll be ready to do a clean install. Sometimes, what you think might be an easier way (upgrade) ends up being more problem than it's worth. As quick as either slack or bt are to install, I think a clean install might actually be faster, in some cases. Security patches are another story, of course.
