comment make reposync ignore /etc/yum.conf?
I thought of this, but how does that help ? both repos have the same name. In my case 'varnish'. I can disable both, then will reposync use the ones from my file regardless ? -- i'll go try it.

comment bash execute read command from file
For what it's worth, if this script is purely to rename files, there's already many very powerful tools out there to do such a thing.

comment What are the reasons Slackware still refuses to include PAM?
there's a recent version of slackware ? I thought they released once per lifetime, with the release shell scripts being passed down from father to son in the will.

comment Concern about logging in as root overrated?
I've never understood why people believe using sudo prevents mistyping commands. Last system i hosed a few years back was a sudo rm -rf /dir / job.

comment How to keep track of installed software
Imho, the best approach is not to get into this state in the first place. Dictate that all software has to be packaged or it wont be installed, where needed make the package yourself. Then put these on your internal package server.
