PACKAGES THAT ARE NOT ALIEN

Using binaries as much as possible (not all machines have a good cpu),

mkdir -p ~/slack
cd ~/slack
list="libreoffice"
for pkg in $list; do
    lftp -c "open http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/$pkg/pkg64; mirror -c 14.2"
    installpkg $pkg*.txz
done; unset pkg
unset list
