    I assumed that you would run it on the Slax livecd. If not, wherever you planned to install the .tgz file to, you should run the rpm2tgz command first. Then you will be able to run the command to install the .tgz file.

    I would have to convert it to .mo the add the module to Slax which will then run it off the cd without installing it.The .tgz is for backup

    I am confused.
    You need to convert the .tgz to .mo?
    Or is the .tgz for backup?

    If the answer to the first question is yes, why can't you use an rpm, with the rpm2tgz tool.

    .tgz for backup and .mo for modules for Slax
