Hello,

I'm trying to have more room on my rootfs partition. I don't want to repartition if possible.

My large partition is /mnt/hda

Can I move /usr to /mnt/hda/usr and link it back to /usr ? That would free a lot of space.
My concern is: if anything that runs BEFORE mounting /mnt/hda needs /usr I'll be in trouble.

Second question.. the ramdisk seems to be 10MB. I understand it is usefull because it keeps the logs, and allows the drive to go to sleep without the logwrites waking it up ?

Since I don't care about the drive sleeping, can I somehow disable or shrink the ramdisk and re-use the memory ?

Thanks,
Eric

What do you need more room for?

What I did is to move /usr/local and /home to the data partition and then install any new software on the /usr/local subtree. By doing that my system partition never grew beyond 60% and is pretty stable. Just a very few occasional need of installing libraries or something that I forget to configure against /usr/local

That's more than enough for me not to worry about disk space when trying new things.

I was trying to compile Apache and MySQL and ran out of room.

Your suggestion of putting everything new in /usr/local and moving that to the data partion seems solid.
Currently my system partition is at 65%, but that could be because I compiled and installed 'nano'.
