AltME: Syllable

I tried it on anothe computer and it seems you do need to sign in - I thnk I left this checkbox checked to allow editing the file, though - maybe that's why
Kaj
Is that uncompressed?
AdrianS
no, compressed
well, the vmdk is just a little bigger - about 148 MB
Kaj
What sort of compression?
AdrianS
7zip
like your other archives, no?
Kaj
Yes. However, the standard CD is 93 MB. The VM shouldn't be much bigger
Did you install multiple times over the same image?
AdrianS
no
Kaj
Hm, there's a serious inefficiency in there somewhere
AdrianS
this was a fresh VM - nothing else installed
Kaj
Odd. This is another reason that the creation of our distributions is quite critical. Our existing VMware image is 55 MB, although that's for Syllable 0.6.6, which was smaller
AdrianS
when you create the disk, there's an option to pre-allocate it - I chose that (the size had was a 1 GB disk). Not sure if that would make a difference as to how small it would compress

Skydrive needs a Live ID to download a publicly shared file? That's hilarious. I should buy Dropbox shares (if I had the money). :-)
AdrianS
I can try again with a disk that is not pre-allocated
Kaj
Could be, if it doesn't zero-fill it
AdrianS
no, I think I just shared it with the option to edit
Kaj
Qtask also needs cookies to get into a public file listing
Andreas
(If only Dropbox had public shares ... :)
AdrianS
creating the VM again without pre-allocating the disk to see if it'll compress more
