If you need your modules often
If you need your modules
almost every time when you run Slax, store them in
/slax/modules/ directory of your Slax CD or USB disk.
This way the module will be automatically activated
during boot procedure.
If you wish to use your
modules only sometimes, store them in /slax/optional/
directory (or its subdirectories) on Slax CD or USB
disk. Every time you need your module, specify it's
name in the load= boot parameter. For example:
boot: slax load=wine,graphics
This can mean: use
module /slax/optional/wine.lzm and all the .lzm modules
from /slax/optional/graphics/ subdirectory. Requests
for non-existing modules or directories are silently
ignored. To remove a module, simply delete it from disk
If you need to use the module after Slax is started
All the methods
described above require you to restart Slax every time
you wish to add or remove additional modules. A more
comfortable way is to manage modules on the fly,
while Slax is running. You can either start the
Slax Module Manager (located in 'System' menu), or
you can use 'activate' and 'deactivate' commands manually.
Syntax is following:
The module will be
activated on the fly and the application will look like
installed. Then, you will need to start the application
by appropriate command, or find it in the KDE menu.
If you are not
comfortable using the commands, simply doubleclick your
module.lzm in a file manager (for example in
konqueror), this will do the trick as well.
