at boot start menu i use
COPY2RAM option. this way everything gets copied to RAM. At start it takes a little time, but then it+s super fast.

I need it to be even faster (for using with Blender-just one program for rendering or computing)
I wonder is there a way to shut down some grafical things to work only in console? acctually only resoults are important to me-output of blender-jpeg files.

Deprecate glibc in favor of Musl ...
http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/forum.porte ... ibs#p44829

Deprecate gcc in favor of Tiny C Compiler ...

Deprecate perl in favor of microperl...
(see... https://www.foo.be/docs/tpj/issues/vol5 ... -0003.html )

Use OpenCL instead of nVidia's "Cuda".

Use compile sbase/ubase to replace command line utilites (see... Suckless.org ).

1.-Do not start unneeded modules!
2.-Strip all executables,
3.-Leave out infos, docs, readmes,
4.-Ask fanthom......
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

Salutations... :good:

Use Memcached and Swapspace instead of Zram. Use Numa. Use Perl-JIT. Avoid... Gtk/Qt. Use FLTK.
Use PekWm instead of Openbox. Use Qingy DM instead of Slim DM. If you use nVidia use OPenCL instead of Cuda.

"Best Regards"... :beer:

Like I showed in my thread about GIMP, that can mean a lot. The more complex the GUI is, the more menu entries, and windows with tub-tabs and more sub-tabs it has, the larger get the Locals. And they are plain text and compress quite well, but with programs like GIMP or blender it makes quite the difference in removing unneeded Locals.

Sure, when sharing such a module one should e.g. point out
"This *whatever* version is a stripped down version. I did all this *list* to make the module smaller"
And the list then needs to address all what wread wrote above, and also list what Locals remain, e.g. only the en or only en-US or en-UK one, removing all else... And for other languages e.g. only Korean, French, Japanese or such...
Cheers!
Yours Rava
