I'm running -current on my ThinkPad 1480i at the moment (thanks
Todd for your pointers last week about my build probs), but I've
botched one aspect of the install. I have a 30G disk, and because
it was late at night when I installed 3.0, I made one partition for
the entire disk. Everything works, but it dawned on my peabrain
that I've just set myself up for trouble in using new kernels, once
I'm using more than 8G of my disk.
So my question is--and I know this is a horrid kludge--can I
create some number of 5M files (/file1, /file2, ...), since I'm
still below 8G of usage, and when a new kernel comes long, simply
cp the kernel to use of those files? Would that guarantee that
the kernel would still be within the 8G boundary?
Yes, I know that reinstalltion os the right way to go and
I'll do that, but I was wondering if this kludge would work.
