Hi Bad_gui, when building from sources you can use checkinstall -L to make a tlz package. You can install it with installpkg then. The system database will register it and also you can uninstall / upgrade with slapt-get or gslapt. For more (and better) info you can take a look at the packaging howto on the how to's forum. It is no valid for packaging for the repos any more, since the requisites to submit a package have been changed, but is still useful for a good software management.
