Installing Slackware softwares with Blackpkg

The semi-official site of packages is, but compiling them can be difficult.

By using Blackpkg you can install packages of the repository in just one line of command, and set flags like the processor.

Example installing Google-Chromium. ( -march=native to compile natively for my CPU):
# export SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -march=native"
# blackpkg -y libevent chromium

Installing ExtremeTuxRacer with all 3D power of CPU!
# export SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -march=native"
# blackpkg -y extremetuxracer
