Squashfs with LZO
Username: Iguleder1
Barry, could you add support for LZO compression in Woof? It requires a new mksquashfs4.2 compiled against a static liblzo and a tiny change in 3builddistro. It's great for testing, since LZO compression is very fast. You can build an ISO in 5 minutes and test it. If it's any good, you can make a final one with '-comp xz -Xbcj x86' for minimum size. It's a great time saver.

"Iguleder, I don't understand, it has xz compression, which 3builddistro recognizes. According to 'mksquashfs4 --help', this '-comp xz -Xbcj x86' is available. The squashfs 4.2 package is in the 'common' repo. Rob, I don't remember. It really is up to you to have a go at getting Wary installed on any particular hardware. Wary is well suited to older i486 and i586 class x86 systems. With this Wary, even the Mplayer media player should work on a i486 system.
