Swaret was a program for the Slackware Linux distribution that resolves dependencies. Swaret stands for SlackWARE Tool.

  • Rollback capability
  • Logging
  • 3rd party software repository support

The program was created by Luc Cottyn, and was originally called "autopkg". However, because of a conflict with another project of the same name it was renamed to swaret. It has no active maintainer.[1]
