Lately I was checking the statistics of Slackpack’s site, and I can see that alot of users clicked on Slackpack 1.1.8 module (.lzm) for SLAX,

I’ve stopped using SLAX for a while now, so I cant maintain any .lzm modules for Slackpack, if anyone would like to contribute and make an .lzm module for Slackpack newest version 1.1.9
-and for the upcoming versions if you want-

feel free to do it and let me know to publish it on the Downloads page.

You can use the tgz2lzm to convert .tgz Slackpack slackware packages to SLAX .lzm modules.

Since the early versions of Slackpack a “Get Packages” feature (a feature that would search and download slackware linux packages over the net) was listed on the TODO file, as you can see on the -current dir of the Slackpack source repository the development of this feature has started.

I hope it will be fully functional in the next major release.
Stay tuned! 🙂

Slackpack 1.1.8 for Slax :) October 27, 2009

So I wanted to give life to my usb pen-drive and so Ive started looking for Slackware-based mini distros that would fit in my 2gigs pen-drive. 🙂

Ive came across Slax, my new pocket operating system! 🙂
Slax is Slackware based fully compatible with the Slackware package management tools and its using a modules system which -as described by the Slax site- is:

The modular approach gives you the ability to include any other software in Slax easily. If you’re missing your favourite text editor, networking tool or game, simply download a module with the software and copy it to Slax, no need to install, no need to configure.

For my surprise after browsing the Slax modules repo I saw a Slackpack 1.1.4(old..) Slax module!

After researching abit on Slax modules i came across tgz2lzm script(which is actually making a very good job!)and ive converted the latest Slackpack 1.1.8 package to a Slax .lzm module :).. And here it is!:
