Thread: flashfs size

  1. #1

    Question flashfs size

    How much can be stored using flashfs?
    Is there a way to check free space?

    I'm asking because I'd like to add some executables in there that would start even if /opt is not available.

    Thanks, Buld

    how can i check free space?

    if the wl500gp has 8mb flash am i right thinking that the first 8MB-4MB-64K is the firmware an the rest of it is usable with flashfs?

    what happens, when the flash.tar.gz is too big?

    can i somehow the how it is partitioned?


    edit:

    found following messages in boot protocol:
    Jan 1 01:00:03 kernel: 0x00000000-0x00040000 : "pmon"
    Jan 1 01:00:03 kernel: 0x00040000-0x007f0000 : "linux"
    Jan 1 01:00:03 kernel: 0x000ec4e4-0x007f0000 : "rootfs"
    Jan 1 01:00:03 kernel: 0x007f0000-0x00800000 : "nvram"
    Jan 1 01:00:03 kernel: 0x003e0000-0x007f0000 : "flashfs"

    so its exact 4mb for flashfs?

    as you can see from your data it is:
    0x007f0000 - 0x003e0000 = 0x410000 = 4064kb

    (sure, you're right )
