Clearly, the generation output with 1.xx is much slower than the 2.xx While with the 1.xx should operate on a daily basis, with the 2.xx should run on a schedule. Here are some key features of "Package DataBase View": · it does not require clear / gtk + / qt libs or other large. · It requires no web server - but it can be used with a web server, like any other · HTML files. · it does not require an X server running, you can use a text browser that support frames · as links. · it does not require special privileges to access the exit. · But access may be restricted using chmod / chown (file) or. htaccess (apache). · Since the output is generated by a cron job, access to exit is as fast as your computer · can read / use text files.
