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. πŸ™‚

Ive came across Slax, my new pocket operating system! πŸ™‚
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!:

I see that Google Earth 4.3 is listed as a dependency for this module. This is so peculiar. I’m really curious. Why is this a dependency?

Its not πŸ™‚ , its listed because of a bug on the modules page on SLAX’s site. πŸ™‚
