14:22 satellit_afk walterbender: hi
14:22 walterbender hi satellit_afk
14:23 satellit_afk do you have to use 2 GB USB's  Larger would allow a real install to USB not live system....?
14:24 much better
14:24 I am thinking of bernies ext3 build
14:25 http://people.sugarlabs.org/Tg[…]leared-3GB.img.xz

14:27 http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/S[…]Kit#SoaS_versions.2C_Helper_Boot_Disks._and_variations
14:27 where it is listed
14:28 dfarning is now known as dfarning_afk
14:30 walterbender In the first pass, I need to use 2gig, but let's design a 4gig solution as well.
14:34 satellit_afk it will fit on 2Gb but has small capacity http://people.sugarlabs.org/be[…]direct-2GB.img.gz  or source http://people.sugarlabs.org/be[…]direct-2GB.img.gz
14:34 need to be altered like .txt file says but not expanded
14:35 soas-v3 also works well
14:36 zxy-liveinstaller requres 4 Gb so needs to be live to fit
14:37 sugar 0.88 seems to be best so far 0.90.x is buggy in telepathy
14:38 or Trisquel-sugar toast on USB
14:39 http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/T[…]_On_A_Sugar_Toast
14:41 http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/T[…]ve_CD_persistence  I have not tried it,,,, I could make a 2GB .img file of a working USB if needed  Fast duplication...
14:42 but it is sugar "Sugar 0.86.2 with the Fructose and Honey activities. "
14:46 walterbender 0.88 with persistence would be the best (and the most recent versions of the activities)
14:46 I like the trisquel image...
14:48 silbe just be careful not to store anything valuable on the stick if you go for Fedora-style "persistence" (overlay corruption bug) :-/
14:51 satellit_afk the USB stick is made with Ubuntu "USB Startup Disk Creator" with persistence
14:51 silbe Trisquel seems to be based on Ubuntu, which is based on Debian, which uses aufs. So you might be safe with Trisquel... But I'd recommend 0.88 over 0.86 (and 0.90).
14:53 satellit_afk there is no sugar only Trisquel 4 at the moment but it is supposed to be something qidam is working on ask on #trisquel
14:53 walterbender silbe: +1
14:54 satellit_afk presentli it is gnome plus sugar added http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/T[…]_Toast#Trisquel_4.0.1_Gnome_Desktop_with_sweets_sugar_0.90.1  I do not know if alsroot has a sweets 0.88 built

15:28 bernie satellit_: perhaps to reduce the download size without sacrificing the storage capacity we could use a different virtual disk format which isn't preallocated
15:29 satellit_: also, after installation we could: (1) wipe temporary files such as the yum cache; (2) write from /dev/zero to a big file, until we fill the filesystem (3) delete the big file (4) shutdown (5) compress
15:29 satellit_: the big runs of zeros will compress well
15:29 m_anish_afk is now known as m_anish
15:29 bernie satellit_: also, if you compress with xz rather than gz the file should get 30-40% smaller
15:29 oh, we shouldn't talk on #sugar-meeting!
