Dynamically changing number of inodes ?

Dynamically changing number of inodes ?

Post by Ralf Kraus » Thu, 29 May 1997 04:00:00



Has anybody an idea how to change the number of inodes , without
constructing a new file system on an raid system ( CMD 5400 )
running on an sparc20 under Solaris 2.5.1.

best regards and thanks for any idea.

1. VFAT inode numbers change on remount

Hello there,

I have a problem with the VFAT driver. My system has an ext2 and
a vfat partition. The problem is that the inode numbers of files
on the vfat partition change on each (re)mount of the vfat
partition.
This is irritating tar's incremental backup (-g) and makes
incremental backups of my vfat partition nearly impossible.
Does anybody know who's responsible for this driver and where
how to contact him? I tried to contact Gordon Chaffee
