WOW...that's actually a VERY GOOD QUESTION.


  • Combined includes the full kernel and OS, the "EXT4" and "SQUASHFS" part should be obvious

Can either of you gentlemen help @tmomas and incorporate this into current wiki?

I don't have editing privileges on this page.

Just rechecked: Everybody who is logged in can edit this page.
