Hey Revolverve

PackIt is a GUI for archiving/compressing random stuff, so creating an executable AppImages is kinda out of its scope, just like creating pet, deb, rpm, flatpack, snap, etc. packages.

The thing is that AppImage is not "just" an executable SFS, it's an SFS (used to be an ISO, before that) with prepended i686/x86_64 binary that handles mounting and executing the payload.
Also, the input content must meet specific criteria (.desktop file, AppRun launcher, etc.) - you can't just create an AppImage from anything you want.
Well, technically you could, but it would be just an SFS with useless binary attached to it. Wink

Have a great one, too &
Greetings!

Hi SFR, just wondering with V1.9, is there an easy way to make a LZ4.sfs?
And there is a new block size option, what would be optimal, 4k?
I wanted to experiment with a few sqooshing up formats, only ever used GZIP and XZ so far.

Yes, LZ4 should be available on the drop-down list below the mksquashfs radio button.
But it shows only if squashfs-tools in your distro support LZ4.

Depends on what is your priority.
If you prefer performance over compression ratio, go low and if the opposite, go high.

Hi SFR, not sure if I asked this before, but I am getting an error on Packiting an SFS with no compression option. Says it was not successful almost immediately.
There's no relevant information in view log. Got LZ4 working thanks.

Thanks Smithy, please try v1.20.
___________

Version 1.20:

- mksquashfs: remove '-noId' option, which is not supported by older versions of squashfs-tools
- add missing ; in .desktop file

First post updated.

Greetings!

On a quick test with a smallish Adrv, No Compression works A OK.
Thanks SFR!
