Description:


Kweb2mod is a gui utility to 'webmount' .lzm modules while running a Slackware 12.0/Current based LiveCD.

The initial concept is inspirated by an idea which was posted in the Slax6 todo list of Tomas Matejicek from Slax.org, who invented the 'Slackware-LiveCD-Wheel' by creating the linux-live-scripts available from http://www.linux-live.org.

The modules offered by kweb2mod have to be looked at as a first base - If you think there is a module missing, visit http://live-modules.org.

Remember to check the 'Slackbrowser' for the complete Slackware-current tree converted to .lzm modules.

Features

- Mount modules via httpfs

- Dependency checking for modules to be mounted

- Space and bandwidth saving by fetching only modules which are not already installed locally

- Unmount modules in LiveCD mode

- Integration in KDE™ system menu

- Adjustable to use a custom mirror by editing /etc/web2mod/web2modrc
