Convert modules (sq3 to sq4)

Post#1 by nucleus » 24 Apr 2011, 07:50

Sorry for that old question but forum search doesn't allow searching for "convert module sq4":

How do I convert slax-classic-modules to sq4.lzm-modules?

The modules-tools in my version don't offer the convert-option anymore.

Found a bunch of classic-lzms which I really would like to extract/convert.
When I post a thread then actually because:
-I wanna discuss WHY I do this or that
-I like linux so much and everything with open source
-I want it as complicate as possible
-I wanna recompile my kernel
-I adore other peoples computer-knowledge

@nucleus
if you are using 64bits then you won't be able to convert 32bit sq3 modules to sq4.
Reason: 32bit unsquashfs needs 32bit libraries which are not included in 64 bit distro.
Also: i would like to force users to use 64bit native applications, (multilib env is still possible - read FAQ)
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

@ fanthom,

I agree with you for Squashfs-Tool (4.2) with XZ Support.
