I'm using the slamd64-10.2-package from software.jaos.org, but I can see
that this exists in the doinst.sh script (didn't think to check for this
first). However, you seem to have forgotten the leading "/" in some
places (as when checking if gnomesu et al. exists), so it doesn't run as

Yes, but I was actually thinking of if it would be possible to type a
short version of the package's name, so if "gecko" would only match
gecko-sharp-2.0 it would be nice to be able to use that.
On something of the same note, it's quite tedious to type the entire
name+version+build etc when I want to downgrade a package manually (with
slapt-get since I can't get X running with the latest package :).
Shouldn't it be enough to specify up to the part that differ between the
two versions? Like if I have installed x11-7.0.0-x86_64-1.tgz and want
to downgrade to x11-6.9.0-x86_64-1.tgz for all x11 packages. Currently I
have to type all of x11-6.9.0-x86_64-1 for it to match, but it would be
nice just to use x11-6, x11-devel-6 etc. Just a thought...
