minefield (firefox) extension: maximizing memory
« on: December 10, 2008, 02:06:16 PM »
I was trying to find firefox (minefield) as a tcz extension in order to minimize memory consumption.

It looks to me that minefield is only available as a tce extension at the moment. Is it possible to have as a tcz extension or could there be a specific reason that would make this impossible?

I am running minefield as a tce, but all the other dependencies (basically the whole gtk2 packages) as tcz. This seems to works well and thus should lower memory consumption compared to running the dependencies that are pulled out from the app browser along with the minefield package.

Yes, I tried opera tcz.
Works well.

But I still prefer firefox as I'm more used to it.
So hopefully we can have minefield.tcz available soon (as it seems only the tce is there)

It should not need an user.tar.gz, so automatic conversion with tce2tcz.sh should just work. No specific reason for not having a tcz.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Exact, I made a minefield.tcz by running tce2tcz.
Works well!

ps: tce2tcz.sh is useless in core. Why not move it away from core and into the mkisofs-tools extension?

Would the same be true for the java extension?

Most likely yes. Not sure though if java needs to write to it's own files.
