    I was wondering how to set how lessfs uses compression?

    The docs talk about it using LZO or QuickLZ, but I don't see where to set that.

    Thanks

      Lessfs now defaults to using QuickLZ compression because it provides slightly better performance and there is no need to install additional software. To compile lessfs with LZO compression download the tarball from this location:

      http://www.lessfs.com//wordpress/wp-content/software/lessfs-0.2.0-lzo.tar.gz

      I will change the autoconf/automake scripts to enable LZO compression as an option at a later stage.

        Mark,

        thanks for getting back to me.  I see the code has LZO logic in it, and was just wondering.  Looks like QuickLZ is better for smaller sizes.

        Thanks

      I just checked the syslogs from the current lessfs, and it all says LZO, is that just wrong?

      Never mind, I just saw the code and it's hard-coded to say lzo for now.
