Porteus-ARM for Cubox/Cubieboard

Hi Ahau, testing your ARM version I was deeply impressed: SPLENDID work :good: I would like to port it to Cubox and Cubieboard , as these devices include an SATA port. It shouldn't be a problem to build the Porteus kernel for those devices but I have no clue how to include the initramfs... Once it i...

Re: Slax-7 -> Porteus-2.0 backports

Hi Fanthom, ...it's hard to convince Tomas to anything... I've made the experience, that he has changed his mind in some areas ;) It was fairly easy to convince him to (improve and) use zram. Same was with my detection scripts for Poulsbo chipsets. Even while he invented dynfilefs , at the end he in...

We can mount an iso from a web page without downloading it
Good find!

Nevertheless this is possible with httpfs since Slax-6.0.0 and from then was used to run Slax or mount modules via the web ;)

zram for extension of usable space for aufs

Hi all, long time no post ;) Preparing the next FluxFlux version I have integrated zram (successor of compcache) in linuxrc. zram explained: ...creates a RAM based block device which acts as a swap disk, but is compressed and stored in memory instead of swap disk (which is slow), allowing very fast ...

are you planing to do the same?
Definitely!

When I'm finished with the repo preparations for FluxFlux-2011.1, I will test my backport of xz and squashfs to the 2.6.32.27 lts kernel.
