I checked my result again. Build took 31 minutes. I was using an
XO-4 with 2GB RAM, 4GB swap on SD card, 500GB USB HDD.
My build was without Sugar activities.
I was also using two performance changes:
I tested the hardware to establish performance metrics:
1. internal eMMC, sequential read, 49 MiB/s, (operating system),
2. USB HDD, sequential read, 27 MiB/s, (osbuilder filesystem),
3. USB HDD, filesystem write, 27 MiB/s,
4. external SD, sequential read, 15 MiB/s, (swap),
Sequential read test method for each device was:
yum install -y pv
pv -i 30 /dev/sda1 > /dev/null
