-<p>A software package is a bundle of related programs that are ready for you to install.
-When you download a source code archive, you have to configure, compile, and install it
-by hand. With a software package, this has already been done for you. All that you have
-to do is install the package. Another handy feature of using software packages is that it
-is very easy to remove and upgrade them, if you so desire. Slackware comes with programs
-for all your package management needs. You can install, remove, upgrade, make, and
-examine packages very easily.</p>
-
-<p>There's a myth that's been going around ever since RedHat debuted RedHat Package
-Manager, that Slackware has no package management tool. This simply couldn't be further
-from the truth. Slackware has always included a package manager, even before RedHat
-existed. While not as full-featured or as ubiquitous as rpm (or for that matter deb), <tt
-class="COMMAND">pkgtool</tt> and its associated programs are every bit as good at
-installing packages as rpm. The truth about <tt class="COMMAND">pkgtool</tt> is not that
-it doesn't exist, but that it doesn't do any dependency checking.</p>
-
-<p>Apparently many people in the Linux community think that a packager manager must by
-definition include dependency checking. Well, that simply isn't the case, as Slackware
-most certainly does not. This is not to say that Slackware packages don't have
-dependencies, but rather that its package manager doesn't check for them. Dependency
-management is left up to the sysadmin, and that's the way we like it.</p>

-
-<p>Before learning the utilities, you should become familiar with the format of a
-Slackware package. In Slackware, a package is simply a tar archive file that has been
-compressed with <tt class="COMMAND">gzip</tt>. Packages are built to be extracted in the
-root directory.</p>
-
-<p>Here is a fictitious program and its example package:</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-./
-usr/
-usr/bin/
-usr/bin/makehejaz
-usr/doc/
-usr/doc/makehejaz-1.0/
-usr/doc/makehejaz-1.0/COPYING
-usr/doc/makehejaz-1.0/README
-usr/man/
-usr/man/man1
-usr/man/man1/makehejaz.1.gz
-install/
-install/doinst.sh
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p>The package system will extract this file in the root directory to install it. An
-entry in the package database will be created that contains the contents of this package
-so that it can be upgraded or removed later.</p>
-
-<p>Notice the <tt class="FILENAME">install/</tt> subdirectory. This is a special
-directory that can contain a postinstallation script called <tt
-class="FILENAME">doinst.sh</tt>. If the package system finds this file, it will execute
-it after installing the package.</p>
-
-<p>Other scripts can be embedded in the package, but those are discussed more in detail
-in <a href="package-management-making-packages.html#PACKAGE-MANAGEMENT-MAKEPKG">Section
-18.3.2</a> below.</p>
