[Solved???] Netsurf "framebuffer"

n0ctilucient, posted a link to a slackbuild. Check that. You can harden it the way you want. That's what a slackbuild is there for.

Porteus Kernel Builder

But this used to work in the past Yeah, you are right it used to work. And I had thought about opening a discussion on it, how we can make our scripts not to allow it. So in a sense glad that aufs itself fixes this. Maybe I can check in recent aufs sources and see if there is now a guard against al...

Porteus Kernel Builder

fulalas , I told this to you already in our development section - Modules should always be activated from outside of aufs. browser updates (Post by jssouza #72160) All modules are connected as readonly branches, with the writable part on the live system overlayed as changes on the aufs union. If yo...

Porteus with zstd compression

so: .xzms and -zstd.xzms will activate at boot, and a lot of the gui scripts will work oftb .ie activate/deactivate/extract The only problem here I noticed is that there is no way to check what type of compression has been used to create the module. A file command just says Squashfs filesystem, not...

Porteus with zstd compression

Great! i'm curious about the kernel support for compressors, is this part of the AUFS patching or some other compile flag .. how (not)trivial is this? Nope, no aufs patching is necessary. In fact, I think it is now already part of the kernel :) @raja requested here Porteus Kernel Builder (Post by ra...

Porteus v5.0rc1 problems

Hi joe nar quo,

Try running chrome from a terminal. It might dump some error message on the terminal when it closes.

Porteus with zstd compression

Hi, is a change over from xz to zstd useful just because it is slightly faster to decompress? I think, what has been tried and tested for a long time should be maintained. And you can continue to use existing xzm modules. I almost agree with you Kulle. But, here's the thing: When lzma1 was the thin...

Porteus with zstd compression

It's true, agree with you, but when one facilitates an iso as an experiment, I would think both xzm and zstdm scripts should be present for comparison dont you think? That is why I compiled the kernel with both xzm as well as zstdm support, and, also instead of overwriting the existing scripts, I (t...

Porteus-5.0-rc1-Openbox with ZST compression

Did you use standard 15 compression level or changed to 22. I used compression level of 22. I also kept the block size at 256K which is same as that of xz compression in dir2xzm. Dont know if a higher block size changes anything. You can experiment with them by changing the -b 256K -Xcompression-le...

What if installed on NTFS, is it still fast.
I did not see any noticeable difference. Boot from ntfs also had same boot time and same response times.

Porteus with zstd compression

I also noticed that there is no support (yet) for compressing kernel and the initrd itself in zstd format. Not sure if this is not possible or might come later in the kernel. I remember xz compression of the kernel also came later, after squashfs xz support had arrived. In old computers, uncompressi...
