  1. When making a live-CD, I generate a squashfs image using LZMA compression. The original file is ~2GB, and the image file is about 500-600MB.

    For this case:

    1. It is possible to use squashfs with lrzip compression?
    2. The lrzip DEcompression speed is better than LZMA or XZ, for this case?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. That sort of file will likely compress more with lrzip and decompression will be faster. However squashfs does not support lrzip.

    2. Ok. Thanks for your answer.

      It is possible to add support for lrzip in squashfs (kernel module and utility tools)?

      I am NOT asking for anybody to make this work. The question is in the technical sense. I am asking if it is possible to do this with the actual API of lrzip, or if this kind of task will require a lot of changes in lrzip API.

      If this were possible, I have the old patches used to add support for LZMA in squashfs3, and I could try to modify it for the case of lrzip...

    3. There is a liblrzip library in the lrzip source which should make this possible.
