Hello Slackbuilds users :
I have made a script that downloads, builds and installs automagically 
SlackBuilds .
It would be nice that the script would be downloadable on the slackbuild 
site/included on extra/ slackware repositories .
To use the script, just type as root:) :
# slackmerge <category> <package>
For example :
# slackmerge desktop icewm
Here is the script content :
# Usage : slackmerge <category> <package>
# For example : slackmerge desktop icewm
mkdir /tmp/SmGE
cd /tmp/SmGE
wget -c $SB_REPO$1/$2.tar.gz
tar xvf $2.tar.gz
cd $2
cp $2.info download
echo "\
wget -c \$DOWNLOAD" >> download
sh download
sh $2.SlackBuild
installpkg /tmp/*$2*.tgz
The script is also attached to the e-mail .
Enjoy using the script !
