thecoolone19am i the only one with a wierd problem like this ??
jennamWell usually you can take it to be a filesystem issue but with that the entire filesizes differ
thecoolone19yeah
peercethe two different disks must have different cluster sizes
thecoolone19is it because the destination is a Virtual Machine Guest OS ?
peercetoo, the source disk's directories may have formerly had more files so have lots of empty blocks
thecoolone19; that shouldn't matter.
thecoolone19so how can i free up the empty blocks ?
jennamdefrag I guess
thecoolone19but how does rsync copy empty blocks ?
peerceI dunno if ext3 ever colesces old directories
coelesces? grr, whats that word?
coalesces, I guess.
compacts probably be better.
is there a defragger for ext2/3 ?
thecoolone19so there is nothing that i can do
jennami dunno..looking for one now :/
thecoolone19or can i use the shrink option in VMtools ?
jennamhttp://lists.amesfug.org/pipermail/amesfug/2003-January/012843.html
i think vmware has a built in defrag tool
go to the properties of the virtual disk
thecoolone19ok
peercethat doesn't defrag the guest file system, that defrags the host OS file that contains the virtual disk
jennamah
thecoolone19no there is a shrink tool that frees empty blocks too i guess
peercei always statically preallocate my virtual disks. they run faster that way
and all my virtual dissk are on a dedicated file system on the VMware server
thecoolone19do you have seperate disks for each VM ?
guys whats the command with /list to find a particular room ??
jennam/list <text>
thecoolone19are there any windows platform channels in freenode?
jennam#windows perhaps
thecoolone19i tried /list php but it doesnt work
Channel Users Topic * End of /LIST
jennamperhaps it is private
peercemost channels are private to reduce spambots
thecoolone19oh i see
peerceer, many are.
not most
I think its +n that prevents outsiders from seeing who's in the channel
