This is what I tried
Code:
WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get
EXCLUDE=^kernel-.*

SOURCE=http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.0/
SOURCE=ftp://mirrors.blueyonder.co.uk/sites/ftp.slackware.com/slackware-current
#Tryed this to get packages off the DVD-Rom drive
SOURCE=mnt/cdrom/
SOURCE=file:///mnt/cdrom/


If you look in the slapt-get faq usually in:
Code:
 /usr/doc/ slapt-get version number/FAQ
you will find info about sources that can be used. Also check:
Code:
 /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.9.12a/example.slapt-getrc
for more info on valid sources YES you can use a dvd/cd/local file as the source if you so choose.

In your slapt-getrc file you would edit the source list to point to your file and comment the other sources out so that it will pull from the local file only.

Just remember that in Slackware/BT the dependencies are not installed for you,you must do this manually and it must be done first.
