MOFO 2.0 and 3.0 info

MOFO Linux is secure, free (as in freedom and beer), and effective in penetrating "national firewalls" designed to inhibit freedom of speech. It's a specialized version of Porteus Linux, designed for overcoming internet filtering and surveillance imposed by service providers, governments, or other entities.

I never ran MOFO, not any version. I just wonder, are there compatibility issues between sharing modules between version 3.0 and 4.0, since it uses a different underlying Linux userland, as in Slackware/Porteus for 3.0 and Ubuntu for 4.0? Has anyone of you tried to use MOFO modules for 4.0 with a RUNNING mofo 3.0 or tried using MOFO 3.0 modules with a running MOFO 4.0?</curious Rava is:curious>
Cheers!

"are there compatibility issues between sharing modules between version 3.0 and 4.0, since it uses a different underlying Linux userland, as in Slackware/Porteus for 3.0 and Ubuntu for 4.0?"
I would say yes. Ubuntu is bleeding edge and Porteus is aging. Some modules will work and other wont (dependency hell).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
