    I highly doubt it. For one .tgz packages for Slackware are precompiled binaries, and there isn't binary compatibility between Linux and OpenBSD, afaik.

    IIRC, there is a way to install NetBSD's pkgsrc system on Slackware... Uhh, let's see... Here we go. Never done it myself, so I can't say how well it works.

    However precompiled binaries WILL NOT work between the various BSDs and Linux.
