How to extract SLAX .mo modules ?
Slax .mo module is nothing but squashfs files, same as usr_cram.fs. To extract files mount it on a tempory folder such as /mnt/module/ using

Code:
mount -o loop slax.mo /mnt/module


move the files to the desired location

This means that most of slax .mo can be used in puppy without having to compile. This stays true until you are able to fulfill the dependencies.

NOT ALL .MO WILL WORK IN PUPPY

i found out that arts does not work well xorg.pup by MU so i had to use the xorg server from slax because is arts is configured to work best with that.

however smaller apps without many dependencies and config req. should work.

avoid replacing puppys libs with one from slax otherwise you might land up with one running app from slax .mo and many broken puppy apps !!

If you have a working SLAX then you can remove individual packages from slax as follows

goto /var/log/packages
start terminal
command = removepkg -copy packagename
the files will be extracted to /var/setup/removed_packages/packagename folder
