- Subject: AR Soft RAM Disk BLODA
I tried to hardlink my build dir to a ramdisc to speed up compilation.
There's only one free ramdisc available > 32MB, a freeware from AR Soft.
The build went fine, but then errors started to crop up.
All more extensive and fast file io (find and tar) started to bail out
with "Ressource temporary unavailable".
Not on the ramdisc drive, for example tar xfj
/usr/src/setup/release/perl/perl-5.8.8-4.tar.bz2 -C / never succeeded.
Disabling the ramdisc didn't help, uninstallation did help.
Hope this helps, and I hope someone can suggest a working ramdisc driver,
the windows ramdisc has max 31 MB.
My perl builddir is about 80MB, clisp 120 MB.
