Packages included in the Slint-14.2 ISOs not coming from a Slackware (TM) repository

Translations of this page:
The Slint 14.2 ISOs includes packages coming from four sources:

When upgrading packages with slapt-get, their priorities are set as:

  • Slint: Preferred
  • Salix: Official
  • Extra-14.2: Official
  • Slackware: Default

This means that when packages with the same base name are found in different sources, a package coming from Slint will replace a package coming from another source, and a package coming from Slackware will be replaced by a package coming from another source, regardless of their respective versions.

As Salix takes care that the Extra-14.2 and Salix repositories do not host the same packages, they should not be conflicts between these.

We list below only the packages that come from Salix, Extra-14.2 or Slint.

A * after the package name in the list below indicates that a package of the same name exists in the Slackware repository. Then the rationale for shipping one (different, but in a few cases) from the Salix or Slint repository instead is indicated as a comment.
