Live never ending Tale - Unofficial Debian Packages,
all sort of packages, patches and info.
live-net-initramfs-tools modify the initramfs-tools package to
minimize initramfs size and use Busybox internal commands.
libcgroup modification of the standard libcgroup utility
under another point of view; focus on process name, user name has little importance.
start-stop-daemon modification of start-stop-daemon
contained in Debian's dpkg, to include control groups options.
cgroups+sysvinit A performance enhancement of the Linux OS
that classifies all the system processes in control groups according
to the type of each task.
live-net-getopt advanced getopt functionality,
Type of parameters: required and optional, indicator parameters, choice, multiple choice.
live-net-jobadmin Batch jobs manager.
Executes the jobs in control groups.
Defines multiple users, job queues, output queues.
All is defined under an IBM/OS-400 point of view.
overlayfs Customization of the overlayfs union file system,
that is being developed in https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs.git/.
apt-transport-httparia2 Using this method has some advantages over HTTP. Unlike the
traditional HTTP method, this transport will download simultaneously
from multiple servers and always recovers the latest version of the files.
Each download is done from a set of mirrors,
and the job will be completed even if one of them is not responding
Type: a mod of the initramfs-tools package.
Description: modify the initramfs-tools package to minimize initramfs size and
use Busybox internal commands.
* It prefers use the internal commands of Busybox, rather than including other executables.
That unifies the syntax of the commands within a initramfs file; and also reduces its size.
* Includes real versions of the libraries, does not look for alternatives in reduced versions,
since that really saves only a bit of space.
* Includes executable only by name, does not need the directory where they are or the destination directory.
* Create links within the initramfs file between each of the executables or libraries,
avoiding making multiple copies of the same.
* don't create links to internal busybox commands
until ending the mkinitramfs process.
Type: a mod of the libcgroup package.
Description: focus the libcgroup management in task name.
Type: a mod of the dpkg package.
Description: start-stop-daemon changes the control group of newly started jobs.
Type: a new transport method for apt.
Origin: Developed by myself,
Description: add a transport method to apt for more reliable downloading.
Downloads simultaneously from multiple servers and always recovers the latest version of the files.
Each download is done from a set of mirrors, the job will be completed
even if one of them is not responding or unavailable.
In standard conditions, this method is not faster than normal http;
but is more reliable when connecting to servers that are busy or not answering.
- The speed indicator gets confused due to the Aria2 special manner of creating
files. The valid speed indicator is the final one.
- Downloading little files is even slower, because this method will connect
to every mirror looking for the latest modification date of the files.
