squashfs-tools: A compressed read-only filesystem for Linux1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Squashfs is intended to be a general read-only filesystem, for archival use (i.e. in cases where a .tar.gz file may be used), and in constrained block device/memory systems (e.g. embedded systems) where low overhead is needed. The filesystem is currently stable and has been tested on PowerPC, i386, SPARC and ARM architectures.
