#12490 closed enhancement (invalid)

Cannot create large filesystems - Fix

Reported by: rossb@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: toolchain Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Ran into the situation that required rootFS size greater than genext2fs capable of creating (since builds FS in memory, as opposed to on disk). So, needed a genext2fs that used disk as opposed to memory malloc. I am not claiming this as my own work, found it on the net and modified for my own purposes. I use 8G rootFS, have regression tested for last year.

It is my hope that the core team incorporates this package (and capability) into trunk and takes over maintenance.

Makefile (with pertinent comments), patches attached.

Please submit this as a proper patch instead of a gzip content, and post it to the development mailing-list.
