Very basic package management question.
This question actually pertains to Parted Magic, while is not slackware in an entirety, but mostly is build off of slackware.
The Devs of Parted Magic allow adding programs by putting them in /pmagic/pmodules folder (I can't recall the exact path, but its irrelevant) The programs to be placed in there must be of the .txz format.
My question is, Where do I find these? can they be made from sources? What is their relations to .tar.gz? (I hear there was a correlation).
Thank you very much for your time and simple support (hopefully simple)
P.S. Remember that old DOS MHDD drive scanner or HDDScan, that read latency for each block on the disk? Is there a Linux version?
