inodes in mtab?

Post by Tony Gonzal » Fri, 20 Sep 1996 04:00:00

Anyone know what I do to mtab to get it to create extra inodes?

rc.system in my live file system CD floppy has the following:

mount -n -o rw,remount /

rm /etc/mtab
echo "/dev/ramdisk / ext2 rw 0 0" > /etc/mtab

and I'm trying to get it to create a file system like
mkfs.minix -i 1700 /dev/ram 1000
but I'm not sure how to include it in that echoed mtab...if indeed it should
go there.  All I need is more inodes than the 300 default it's giving




1. I have filled up with inodes on /usr, can I change inode withour reinstall?

I have FreeBSD 4.5, a recent install. When trying to install Pine, and a couple of small apps, I
ran into inode trouble.
I am full of inodes in /usr and have searched everywhere for information about it.
The best so far is
However, I do not know if it is possible to change inode on /usr without corrupting what's there
already? Is it, and if so how?
Furthermore, if it isn't possible, how do I change the inode during sysinstall? I don't think I
have seen it anywhere.

Another inode question. when using the pc, will the inodes slowly increase until I have filled it
I am concerned that after xx months of use, I decide to install another application, and i run
into the same problem again.
If I delete an application, will the inodes connected with that app. disappear, and will it be
available for the next app?

So many questions and hopefully so many answers.
Please cc: me if replying.
Thanks in advance for all help.
