Slackware package management with pkgtool is really rather easy.
You just download the packages, open a shell in the directory the
packages are in (so pkgtool finds them easily) and run the pkgtool
command - once it starts the steps to install will be obvious. Pkgtool
does not resolve dependencies - you have to do all that manually -
and pkgtool will install the packages without complaint whether deps
are satisfied or not. In that case the app will not work, but can be
fixed after the fact by finding and installing all the dependencies.

Gslapt (GUI like Synaptic) and slapt-get are somewhat like apt-get,
but if they resolve any dependencies, they don't do it very reliably.
