hi there, this is my
first post at uml list.
I been playing with
uml for a short while. and I have a few questions and
for eacjh point i
will post a separated email.
Background: I built
a new filesystem running uml_builder_gui. ( afterwards i had to build my own
command line to boot, cause ./control did not work, i may write another
email on this point.)
afterwards I used a
cow file, made some changes that later though that where worthy to merge at the
original filesystem so my cow files from now on would be smaller and therefore
save space at my hdd.
running ls -lsh
shows the size of the files and the real size on disk. My original root_fs was
1.8 GB but 500MB on disk, my cow file was 200MG on disk.
Action: i run then
uml_moo <cow file> <new fs>
Now after running
uml_cow the new filesystem is 1.8GB and "1.8GB on disk". Even do it is true that
my new cow files will be smaller, i was specting an smaller grow on the
can someone explan
me the situation and if there is anyway to shrink the new
