Porteus Kernel Builder

Thanks roadie, compressed kernel modules don't make the boot process faster but instead make it slow.

What is the size of 000-kernel.xzm (uncompressed kernel modules vs zstd compressed kernel modules)?

Thanks.

@Blaze and @roadie,
What are the benefits of compressed kernel modules?

In Porteus all files including kernel modules are compressed into xzm containers by squashfs-tools (e.g. 000-kernel.xzm).

If kernel modules are compressed then the system will decompress twice when loading a kernel module?

I tried the patch at the link you show with kmod-27, but it wouldn't compile properly
Maybe this will help kmod patch

EDIT: This still doesn't fix the depmod problem, there are a couple of other files that still aren't updated, I've yet to figure out why they're not.
You must use kmod with zstd support, try to compile kmod with zstd support.

kmod zstd support

Good luck.

I will try it too on my test USB flash drive :) Don't forget to provide the 'extra_ attr,compression' options at filesystem creation. # mkfs.f2fs -O extra_attr,compre...

Blaze, Thank you very much for all your efforts in compiling the Kernel.

Please tell me what are the benefits of CONFIG_MODULE_COMPRESS=y and CONFIG_MODULE_COMPRESS_ZSTD=y?

I just compiled a 5.10.4 for aufs using the patch from the site and am using it now. A bonus is that modules can be activated in the live system.
