Hi Israel, Nico,

1) I have no opinion one way or the other about the suggested wallpapers; I'm not very good at judging what is artistically pleasing one way or the other; although I will just say that a refreshed wallpaper maybe a good idea over the one we've had for a long while now.

I agree.

2) Is it absolutely a requirement to still now produce a CD-sized iso? If it still is, then can the tarball be removed and downloaded at install time?  Just a thought.

I am not sure, if there are still people who use (or intend to use) ToriOS in computers that must be booted from CD. I think such computers are 15 years old.

It is possible to download the tarball at install time.

But there should also be a bigger iso file with the tarball included. It should be smaller than 1.8 GB with some margin for undersized 2 GB pendrives (10-based gigabytes).

Best regards
Nio

Regards,
Jack

Hi Jack,

Please tell us what you think about

1. The suggested wallpaper(s).

2. How to balance between size and completeness of the ISO file:

---
Aside from that changing the size by KiB is not going to do much, we
need to reduce it by MiB.  Systemd really made our footprint balloon
pretty substantially, and make some things more complicated and not work
as well... but... it is what it is :)  I will again try to limit the
size of everything in the newer ISO, however I may have to dig deeper
and look for things that I can get rid of, and see if I can shrink the
tarball pretty substantially, OR

a.) rework the live system to be extremely bare bones (text only) for a
special CD sized ISO.

b.) make an ISO with the tarball NOT included so it can be kept on a USB
to install to keep it CD sized.

Hi Nio,

I'm not sure or clear on what you want us others to pass an opinion on; I'm confused.

Jack

Hi Israel,

Yes, it is a good idea generally. But if including 3 images will make
the size exceed some size limit, it is better to have only one image
in the default package (the tarball).

Best regards
Nio

Hey Nio,

The size of the original current background is 187.3 KiB

The size of the 3 smaller images is 107.8 KiB

So we are actually saving 80(ish) KiB by changing to this.  I think this
is really good because it offers more backgrounds, and reduces the size.

Aside from that changing the size by KiB is not going to do much, we
need to reduce it by MiB.  Systemd really made our footprint balloon
pretty substantially, and make some things more complicated and not work
as well... but... it is what it is :)  I will again try to limit the
size of everything in the newer ISO, however I may have to dig deeper
and look for things that I can get rid of, and see if I can shrink the

Hi Israel, and all toriosadores,

1. I am waiting for the opinions of you other toriosadores ... :-)

2. Instead of shrinking the tarball pretty substantially, I think your
alternatives, a.) and b.), are better.

If possible, I think it would be best with a text only live system for a
CD sized ISO file. But I have tested the alternative with a separate
tarball (or separate tarballs) with the original One Button Installer,
and if the user group people accept it, fine :-)

Best regards
Nio
