You are reasonably safe if you want to implement some kind of automatic updating with Slackware. An updated upstream patch came a day or so later, but I had to restore the previous version package. If you are a general purpose user such a request is understandable.
This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.
They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.
Once you issue the upgrade command you will be presented with a pre-selected list of packages to upgrade. When slackpkg runs it may need to overwrite existing config files.
For this reason you will be prompted to keep,overwrite,remove, or prompt per file.
