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...

Yes, haveged might be a good workaround if low entropy is the reason. Thanks AcnapyxoB.
I tried, but it didn't change anything :(
Oh.. Back to square one :(

Video just stays black until I move and click the mouse Moving the mouse increases the kernel's entropy. Check from a VT (before moving the mouse) if the available entropy is low. cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail This may helps: SSD Slow boot (solved) Yes, haveged might be a good workaroun...

Draco 0.9.0 x86_64 (desktop environment)

Cool. I noticed that they're using just -O2 and -fPIC. My full cmake command line usually goes like this: cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING="-O2 -m64 -pipe -fPIC" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib64 .. Remember long back you had told me about a -DNDEBUG ...

Draco 0.9.0 x86_64 (desktop environment)

Looks much better now with the icons :good: There's a SlackBuild already in the project's github page - https://github.com/rodlie/draco/tree/master/share/slackware. There are some cmake flags in it. Would make sense to adapt that and add our own optimization flags. Would also result in an installabl...

Only qt base and x11 (qt5-5.12.3-x86_64-1jss, qt5-qtx11extras-5.12.3-x86_64-1jss) are sufficient. Dont think it uses the svg library. Qtscript is definitely not needed. Missing icon theme.

loop number

For every loop[0-n] directories in loop there is a loop/backing_file that shows the activated module. Eg: guest@porteus:~$ cat /sys/block/ loop0/ loop1/ loop2/ loop3/ loop4/ loop5/ loop6/ loop7/ sda/ sdb/ guest@porteus:~$ cat /sys/block/loop0/loop/backing_file /mnt/sda3/test/porteus/base/000-kernel....
