I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

it's easy:
a) extract module
b) run

Code: Select all

ROOT=squashfs-root removepkg your_package
c) pack module back
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

I ran xzm2dir on 003-xorg.xzm is that what you mean by "extract module"?

That is correct.

Code: Select all

mkdir /tmp/unpacked
xzm2dir /my/modules.xzm /tmp/unpacked
ROOT=/tmp/unpacked removepkg your_package
dir2xzm /tmp/unpacked mynewmodulename.xzm

I have a question who built 002-xorg.xzm? I would like who ever did it rebuild one for me. What i want is take out all program that are in the Menu area unless they are needed to boot the system up. The files that are taken out please remove there dependencies too. I try to this but with little luck. If I had a list program and the dependencies I could try again.

I done almost all of 003-mate.xzm so far.

Will I remove just programs and then I dir2xzm them backup. I rebooted with no luck. I guest I'll stay with what you all will support. I already reinstall it back what I started with. You still have a good Porteus Linux. Maybe someone help me one day and I guest I'm too old almost 67 years old.

Please let me know which programs you want removed from mate. I already have a bare 002 module with nothing in the menu.
