Can you Make an MD run on a disk?
« on: December 31, 2006, 07:27:25 am »
I am experimenting with Pluto and I don't have much for hardware. I am low on ram and don't have enough to run an MD very well if at all ("512") and I have a comp that I can dedicate entirely to pluto. How can I trick it to use the Hard disk with Swap?

Since it network boots, I believe it treats the Core's filesystem as its own local filesystem - so I would Imagine it uses the core as its swap, but this is just my best guess. While not as fast as a local disk, i'm sure it could keep up just fine on a gigabit network if thats the case

the md's filesystem are running on core, so if you're planing adding space do it on core
