Let me check
I'd like to have your image, but this is not working
sorry, thought you were asking me
give me a place to upload to and I'll stick it there - you can then figure out what you want to do
I got no popups after the countdown - there was a captcha and then a button to download
That button only produces the popup for me. Anyway, this is not something I can put our users through
i think i have a qemu/kvm image from back when syllable desktop 0.6.7 was released. if that's of any use, i can dig it up.
I currently have my VB Bzip2'ed at 112 MB, so it should be very close to the 93 MB installation CD when I 7-Zip it
Thanks, but a QEmu image is less problematic for me to produce, because we have it in Syllable
I did the VB because it's in Ubuntu and VB works much better now than past versions. However, VMware seems to have disappeared from Ubuntu, so it's hard to make the images we used to have
I'll see if VB can export to OVF, and then hope VMware can use the VB disk format
ok. just had a quick look, the qemu-generated .vmdk i have is 441MB uncompressed, and 79MB after 7z -mx=9.
That's better than expected. Maybe indeed a new 7-Zip version
That's with 7-Zip 9.20.
Do you think the VMDK could be dropped into the configuration file for our old image?
No idea, sorry. I was just wondering why I created the image as a .vmdk, but well -- at least that seems to compress quite well.
Thanks for checking
Adrian, I could try that with your OVF: use the configuration and replace the VMDK using QEmu. Could you upload it somewhere simple without the VMDK in it?
I can email it
Andreas, what size HD did you have for the VM you had?
