How about this. the dreamplug is an image intended to install in real
hardware and the vdi is just an image intended to play with and i dont
see a point in such a constrain.

Anyway maybe you are right and 2Gb is enough. I run into space
problems with 1G and had to resized the partition and thats why i
thought it was too little

Well, if the are ways, those changes should be pushed, because the
image is intended to be worked on remotely.

'ny way... just my thought... since im still pretty noob :/

ill add a .diff file next time... I thought changes where too small to
turn it into a patch and was just going to name the changes instead of
a patch but since i already had the output of the diff i stood in
middle ground and pasted a incompresible diff instead u.u

noobish yet to contribute larger patches u.u
