You will probably want to modify the init file to the Slackware

the config file, you can check if the software supports starting via an
alternate config file.  e.g. something like.

keepalived --config /etc/keepalived

option.  You also have to see if init file has Fedora specific stuff, if
yes, then you need to test if that would work on stock Slackware.
