Sub_title: patched to use xz compressed .pxt packages
 

I have patched petget to use xz compressed files - using the extension .pxt to differentiate them (it isn't really that necessary to have a separate extension, but I didn't want users without the patch to be befuddled to why their pet wouldn't install)

Smaller packages will reduce bandwidth usage and server space, shorten download times and still work as fast as the gzip style pet packages. (creating the pet takes slightly longer but nowhere near bzip times)

Still not 100% complete - need to add a mime type etc... for .pxt so that petget automatically handles them.

to test it the packages are in:
http://www.puppylinux.asia/members/T/444/ puppy:linux

You will probably need the tar and xz pet as well unless you have the latest stable versions of both (not included in any Puppy yet)
their are standard pets as well for comparison

techno, can you repost the packages/patches, the links here are broken.

EDIT1
It's ok, I did it anyway, but I left the .pet extension as this is how kirk and jamesbond did it in FatDog. Probably a bunch of changes in petget since your patches anyway. I'll post 'em soon.

EDIT2
The changes were made to woof-CE testing branch https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/tree/testing

WOW++! Just a few days ago I also did something similar (just for myself, selfishly Wink ).
I, too, didn't know the idea goes back to 2009 (thought FatDog was first) and haven't seen Karl's attempt.

@Mick: I tried your versions and just a couple of things to report:
1. One spot is missed in installpkg.sh, line 260: rm -f $DLPKG_MAIN.tar.gz 2>/dev/null (I overlooked it too at first).
2. I'd suggest to use 'file -b' and/or 'grep -w' (I used both) in installpkg.sh and pet2tgz, because in case of gzip'ed .pet that is named, for example: "tuxzone-1.0.pet" we'll get false positive on 'xz' compression.
(should I post the diffs in woof-ce thread for these tiny changes..?)

Great, xz support at last! Very Happy

Greetings!

Ok thanks for line 260, changed gz to ${EXT}

and for the other .. what about?
Code:
file -b "$1" | grep -q "^xz" && EXT=xz || EXT=gz #131122


(of course replace $1 with $DLPKG_BASE in the other one Wink )

Yep, works for me. Cool
Code:
# file tuxzone-1.0.pet
tuxzone-1.0.pet: gzip compressed data, was "tuxzone-1.0.tar", from Unix, last modified: Fri Nov 22 12:12:43 2013, max compression
# file -b tuxzone-1.0.pet | grep -q "^xz" && echo xz || echo gz
gz
#
# file rox-clock-1.pet
rox-clock-1.pet: xz compressed data
# file -b rox-clock-1.pet | grep -q "^xz" && echo xz || echo gz
xz
#

Thanks &
Greetings!
