SquashFS?



Hello,

My name is Darko Ilic, I`m working on Fedora live CD generator named Kadischi 
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kadischi).

Live CDs that Kadischi generates currently use zisofs, but IMHO it would be 
much better to make them with SquashFS. According to the benchmark results 
found at http://kerneltrap.org/files/PERFORMANCE.README.txt SquashFS is far 
superior. It is faster and has higher compression ratio, and both of the 
mentioned problems are present on live CDs Kadischi generates.

I wanted to ask what are the opinions on the subject, and is there any chance 
for SquashFS to make it's way into Fedora kernel by FC5? I`ve heard it was 
submitted to LKML recently and there was some discussions surrounding that 
and that it is a likely candidate for the upstream kernel.

Since we`re trying to make the first Fedora live CDs for FC5, it would be 
really nice to have SquashFS, because it would improve the quality of the 
live CDs dramatically.
