@fulalas, It seems that the RAM usage on Xfce 4.16 is very low, lower than 4.14 and 4.12
Is that true?

@roadie, cool! :good:

I'm playing around with aggressive compiler flags now. I've just built 4.12 from scratch using these flags. It's very experimental (and it doesn't come with whiskermenu nor poppler-data), but if you want to give it a try, here it goes: https://www.mediafire.com/file/jw4v7z30 ... 201225.xzm
fulalas,
It's a very fast desktop on my machine and light on resource usage. I never use whisker-menu, so that's no problem.
It's looking very nice.

babam,
I just tested 4 different versions in Always Fresh mode, that is, base_only, no rootcopy, no changes of any kind. With 4.16, I included the pango xzm with the base modules.

Xfce-4.12-20201225 = 354MiB
Xfce-4.12-20201005 = 362MiB
Xfce-4.14-20201211 = 396MiB
Xfce-4.16-20201226-test = 408

Not a huge difference, but 4.12 definitely has the edge on my machine.

@roadie, thanks for that! I was about to do the same test. :)

4.12 is definitely faster! But I'm not sure I can tell any difference between the regular build and the one using aggressive compiling flags. Can you?

4.14 vs 4.16, which is faster?

fulalas,

I've been using the test build with aggressive compiling flags for 2 days now, and I don't see a big difference in response time as opposed to the regular build. Both are very responsive and I've had no lags with either one.

Rebuilt from scratch. All dependencies updated. Shouldn't be any visible difference though.

Please, let me know if you find any issues :)

Hmm...I must have done it wrong.
Using your 003-xfce-4.16-20210111.xzm + pango-1.48.0-x86_64-1.xzm
with the Porteus-XFCE-v5.0rc2-x86_64.iso (md5sum 17e16e05f6d8d0f30d7092191c5da616)

No shut down or reboot, only log out.
Doing so and trying to log in as root = not possible.

Thunar > open as root > nope, nothing, also porteus settings centre , system info , activate module etc.
No authentication (Pw) window.

Example:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:/opt/porteus-scripts/xfce$ sh ./thunar-root
==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.policykit.exec ====
Authentication is needed to run `/usr/bin/env' as the super user
Authenticating as: root
Password: 
polkit-agent-helper-1: error response to PolicyKit daemon: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: No session for cookie
==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED ====
Error executing command as another user: Not authorized

This incident has been reported.

Please confirm the md5sum:

Code: Select all

Due to network issue had to interrupt and restart the download. Did a complete 2nd download which resulted in the same md5sum. :)
