Hi,

I was trying to do MorphingMorphix with Mainmods

lightgui-2007-02-26_0400.mod

and

lightgui-2007-02-28_0400.mod

I observed that the extracted mod doesn't have /var directory so couldn't do any apt-get operation. I was wondering what could be the issue.

Also bug with `morphix-chroot` is, in a 1st attempt I could add new packages to lightgui-2007-02-27_0400.mod then I did `exit` out of chroot environment. It increased the double of it's original size (which was expected). But what was unexpected that it shd not reduce the mod size when I do `morphix-chroot` again on the modified mod. And when I did `morphix-chroot` second time, it reduced the mod size less than half of the original one (original was 249mb and reduced was 125mb), that means it removed some of the subdirectories from the extracted fs. BUT WHY?

Is it the thing that compression and extraction algorithm has some bug in it?

Please rectify this one ASAP.

Regards

Priti

    Hi,

    I am having problem reproducing these errors. In 02-27 I get /var directory. In 02-28 I get the same size after morphix-chroot.

    Could I have more information ? Does the HD run out of space ?
