ZSTD compression instead of XZ for the modules

Zstd compression available in squashfs-tools in Slackware. I got it through USM. Check alien database.
A xzm module, 300MB was , 318MB in zstd. Compresion level 22.

Speed has to be checked when an ISO is made with zst and deployed, in real time opening applications.

Ocenaudio-3.6.4-64 bit.

Download deb package from here.

http://www.ocenaudio.com/en/download

If deb2xzm works, convert, or unpack with p7zip, dir2xzm and activate. Installs in /opt.

Needs Qt5 preinstalled in your machine.

Works fine.

Porteus Kernel Builder

BIOS Flashing is a permanent procedure, microcode overwritten in the chip on Motherboard.

Loading new Microcode as an image file before initrd, during boot is a temporary affair, executed by the kernel every boot. Remove the image file from boot order, you go back to original old code.

Font Rendering

You might have noticed that fonts are quite fuzzy on Linux desktops which can make your eyes ache if you have to sit in front of your computer all day long. Font rendering is still a little bit awkward and one of the last weaknesses of Linux desktops. https://pandasauce.org/post/linux-fonts/ looks ...
