I have been wondering for quite some time what the best way for me to offload variable data from the nand flash to avoid unneeded write operations.

This has just become even more important to me as I have just replaced my internal microdrive with a RiData 150x 8GB compactflash card biggrin.gif

I have thought of the following possibiliies:


1) simply create symlinks from /var /etc /home /usr /tmp to folder on /mnt/ide
I have tried this before with 1.10rc12 just with /home and had some issues with resuming.

2) mount folders with the bind option in fstab

3) actually mount /var /etc /home /tmp /usr to partitions on hda.
I think this would involve editing hotplug or pcmcia files to work properly with suspend?
Can anyone tell me which ones?

4) Use a pivot-root installation like the C3000.


Please let me know your thoughts and any advantages/disadvantages you see to any method.
Thanks.

Dont use FAT 16 or 32 .... use EXT3/EXT2 this use the space better and use less CPU then any other filesystem. wink.gif
Make a swap partition is better then use a file like it...
