boot using different configuration of mydata.tgz ?
« on: June 25, 2010, 03:35:59 AM »
Let's say if I have 2 different TC configurations installed TC1 and TC2. In order to save space and maintaining packages separately can I just use like onboot1.lst + mydata1.tgz  or onboot2.lst + mydata2.tgz  in one  /tce directories instead of 2 separate dir during boot ?

I guess no. Better to have two different tce directories and scecify which one you want to use with a boot option.

Yes it works to have separate directories but doesn't mean it's better or more efficient.  ;D Imagine if you have 5 or 6 or more.........

To save hard drive space create an "optional" directory symbolically linked to one location in each of the new directories.

This would not work on FAT* file systems though...
