root filesystem

Post#1 by feng » 12 Jun 2012, 14:56

hi !

porteus mount the root filesystem on ram.

my question: is it possible to mount root filesystem on a directory of the hard drive? /abc on /dev/sdb1 for example.

this idea is trying to have more and more space for the root filesystem.

hi feng,

the only way of doing this is to use 'changes=/dev/sdb1/abc' cheatcode. root filesystem will have the same size as free space on /dev/sdb1 partition.
be aware that you wont be running 'Always Fresh' mode anymore.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
