Hi,

using bz2 format instead of tar.gz will reduce quite a bit of size for linux builds.

I downloaded a tar.gz linux build, ( size above 9mb)

ls -l phoenix-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz gives 9573832 (9.1 mb) as the size

i unpacked it, made it a tar file ( tar -xf phoenix phoenix.tar )
and did
bzip2 -9 phoenix.tar

the resulting size of phoenix.tar.bz2 is 8952819 (8.5 mb, i think)

why not u post the bz2 image? it will reduce a lot of download time.

Well that was a Mozilla bug... doesn't mean that Phoenix can't do it.
