Description tymm 1999-12-05 20:59:26 UTC
Would it be possible to add a --bytes-per-inode flag to the part command? Currently to make filesystems with extra inodes (for qmail queues and the like) it is necessary to create everything, copy all necessary files over, unmount the partition, mke2fs, remount, copy files back on to it. Seems that about 1-2 lines of Python in the loader source would make this a whole lot nicer... I'd do this myself (in fact was working on it) but to get a boot disk to build nicely from a slightly nonstandard system it appears is not exactly a walk in the park, and I don't have any particularly standard systems around here to play with. Thanks!
