Vivaldi on a btrfs file system.


  • Vivaldi Team

    Hi,

    i was wondering if there's anyone here running Vivaldi on a btrfs file system. If so, what's your experience as far as start-up and performance compared to other file systems? Even if you only have Vivaldi on btrfs and can't compare to others let me know what you think of Vivaldi start-up and performance.

    This is not a discussion on btrfs as such. That discussion has been going on for years and there's no reason to have it here. 🙂

    Hi, Opensuse use Btrfs regular for / and XFS for /home.
    I copied vivaldi-snapshot from /opt to /home but cant get it to start from there, it always start /opt/vivaldi-snapshot/vivaldi-snapshot
    Any hint for this?
    I can test the two file systems one one system, would be interessting.
    Vivaldi start very fast on my Linux systems, all with SSD, < 2 second speed dial only and 5 extensions.

    Cheers, mib

    The Vivaldi installer puts files in /usr/share and /etc in addition to /opt so you will run into path issues moving it to /home. You can probably hack the .deb or .rpm to use another install path, but I have never done it. If someone has feel free to chime in.

    In your case your profile will be stored and loaded from xfs. it's the performance of Vivaldi where both application and profile is stored on btrfs I am interested in. But good to know that you have a -2 second start-up! 🙂
