Idiot test report #10
Cooled down a little. Now a muggy 25c, better than muggy 30c.
Discovered that main takes up 122110k extra on slink1 & slink2 than in the
mirror. A total of 2252 packages. Total space taken on the discs is
863206790 bytes. I have tracked the problem down to mklist. I was using
unmodified 1.06. The same problem occures with 1.04. I didnt have this
problem with 0.96 (?) Unfortunately I dont have any versions before 1.04.
The good news. A bug that is a feature. The sysmlinks are retained in
slink3-4 using the "flatten" option. These discs can then be burnt using
the patched mkhybrid.
