Don't forget, k1dd13s, always backup to /dev/null ... it's faster than burning to CD. Much faster. *evil laugh*
So I know I promised some of you a large number of (not-public) posts today, and I would have followed through, except my laptop kinda ran out of space.
So I spent most of the afternoon and evening repartitioning it ... I had a very brain-dead partitioning scheme before that wasted a lot of space (because this used to be dual-boot to Windows, believe it or not). All is fixed now, and I can actually get around to thinking about what I wanted to think about to begin with. Or something.
In case you're curious, here is my new partitioning scheme:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/hda2 252M 130M 122M 52% / /dev/hda6 37G 11G 27G 29% /d0 /d0/usr 37G 11G 27G 29% /usr /d0/opt 37G 11G 27G 29% /opt /d0/var 37G 11G 27G 29% /var tmpfs 253M 0 253M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 1.0G 236K 1.0G 1% /tmp /d0/home 37G 11G 27G 29% /home /d0/uml 37G 11G 27G 29% /uml /d0/pub 37G 11G 27G 29% /pub
/ and /d0 are using ReiserFS 3 (*looks around nervously and hopes it doesn't crash* :p), and the /d0/... filesystems are bind mounts (i.e. they're not real filesystems, they're just links from one place to another).
As a semi-interesting side note, ReiserFS is definitely noticeably faster for syncing Portage than XFS is ... but I don't trust Reiser as much. (Could have something to do with that accident a while back involving PartitionMagic, resize_reiserfs and my MP3 collection ... :p)
Now, to restore my music and backups from the server ...
