Slackware runs Openbsd packages??


Hello everybody..

I've just registered and i'm posting my first message.

I noticed that slackware packages and Openbsd packages have the same extension filename .tgz

I remember that the Slackware 10.1 expert installation included something like support for openbsd packages..

Is it possible to install the Openbsd packages in Slackware and how?
I mean if there are some commands,or you just run pkginstall??

Thank you


Excuse me for the Slackare in the title
