Post#1 by cchuang » 19 Jan 2011, 05:20

These modules is developed under slax-remix-09, but I think they can also run on Porteus well. The web site address is:

Fear for OpenOffice development to be put under a foundation were raised long before Oracle's acquisition of Sun. The developers of OOo quit the Openoffice.org project and formed the Document Foundation. LibreOffice-3.3 is it's first release. This module was converted from rpm-installer version and came with shout-cut.

Only official sources are included in this module.
No modules needed but Java. You can also find JDK in Java directory.

@Hamza
"Have you tried to compress it to maximum with mksquashfs -b 1M"
i wouldn't do that as higher compression rate means more CPU power for decompression and slower system. default -b 256K is a good choice - IMHO.
Let's stick to the standards....

I don't think the block size will make enough difference to justify the extra passes during compression. Decompression should be just as quick however the difference in size due to a 1M block is not worth the trouble unless you are talking about HUGE files.

Thanks for this libre release ... i think it will be well used.

@brokenman
in the slax times i have made comparison of slax-remix booting speed (in Vbox) when modules were compressed with different block size. the fastest was 64K if i remember correctly.
you can try to repeat the test with xz compression.
i'm wonder of the result :)

Ah yes. I think i remember it, you were typing a commentary in a text editor next to vbox. I'll run the tests with xz when i get a chance.

Interesting ... here are the results from my test

as you can see with little bigger ISO size you are getting nice performance boost :)
