Description tymm 1999-12-05 15:59:26 EST
Would it be possible to add a --bytes-per-inode flag to the part command?
Currently to make filesystems with extra inodes (for qmail queues and the
like) it is necessary to create everything, copy all necessary files over,
unmount the partition, mke2fs, remount, copy files back on to it.  Seems
that about 1-2 lines of Python in the loader source would make this a whole
lot nicer...

I'd do this myself (in fact was working on it) but to get a boot disk to
build nicely from a slightly nonstandard system it appears is not exactly a
walk in the park, and I don't have any particularly standard systems around
here to play with.

Thanks!
