(SOLVED) Slackbuild Package....
« on: August 29, 2012, 04:39:52 am »
Where is the slack build packages on my drive once downloaded from the repository? I new this but for the life of me just can't remember. I'm looking for the firefox slack build.  To add insult to injury, i have even commented  on another user were to find these!!! and i can't even find that!! Oh... i must be getting old.  :-[

OK, thanks.  I actually tracked everything down right through terminal. First finding  the actual gslapt packages : /var/log/packages. then opening up the firefox package with Geany giving me the actual package location: PACKAGE LOCATION: /home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages/n/firefox-14.0.1-i586-1vl70.txz. From here i simply extracted the files into a new folder giving me the actual files i was looking for: slack-desc and slack-required files for firefox.  ;)
