+1, good compromise :-) OK, great! I have created ticket #10709 [1]. I had a quick look at the code, but to this newbie's eyes it looks a bit more involved than I expected. For everyone else it's probably totally straight forward... :) Regards, Humdinger ...

[haiku-development] Re: hpkgs and compression (looncraz)

Wed, 2014-03-26 20:45
I think packages should be completely uncompressed on disk by default as hpkgs, but support optional, fast, compression for use on CD (or just migrate to DVDs already...). The packages could simply be transferred in space-efficient compression format and uncompressed for installation. If the user/build wants compression, then the package will be compressed (with a speed-efficient, but less space-efficient method), but the package is entirely uncompressed ...

Hi! I'm sorry that I have opened another can of bikeshed... How about this: Since the current Low latency setting is the default setting of the scheduler anyway, why not remove it from the ProcessController menu and just keep the Power-saving mode in there. That would also comply better to the checkmark nature of the menu item (right now the two checkmarkable menu items are mutually exclusive, i.e. it's really a radio button setting). ...

This may not be all too helpful, but I wouldn't put too much worry into this, pick something that's fairly descriptive, then write a good Getting started guide that explains in detail what all the settings do. Just my 2 cents. And sorry for the top post, I am still configuring my mail client to properly include messages in replies. Daniel ...
