I recently installed slackware-14 and it is working very well. However, on searching for applications in pkgs.org, I find that there are many more applications for slackware-13.37. The install dvd of 13.37 is also larger than that of slackware-14 (approx. 4.2 vs 2.4 gb). Will it be easier to use slackware-13.37 for the sake of availability of applications?
Not in some time have I used Slackware but after coming back to Linux and playing with a few distros -Slackware is still the most elegant and stable distro in my opinion.

Slackware Linux, a complete 32-bit multitasking "UNIX-like" system that is currently based around the 3.2 Linux kernel series, is now at version 14.0 RC1.

I'm working with Slackware Linux and trying to install some SRPMs, i get surprised that there is no rpm command in slackware.
I googled a lot and tried many possible ways(using rpmbuild), but not able to install the packages successfully.
Also I tried with rpm2targz, but not able to install the SRPMs
Please suggest the proper way to install SRPM in Slackware..
