I have a virtual server from Bytemark, running what was installed as
Sarge and upgraded along the way to Etch.
For some reason there are two tmpfs mounts, both 72MB in size - about
half my memory each:
# df -lh
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/ubdc 9.9G 1.8G 7.8G 19% /
tmpfs 72M 0 72M 0% /lib/init/rw
tmpfs 72M 0 72M 0% /dev/shm
I tracked these down to /etc/init.d/mountkernfs.sh and
What is this used for? Bearing in mind that I'm still running the 2.4
kernel (UML - I can select a different one through the console but since
this one is working I'm not about to fix it), is it safe to stop these
two services and unmount the two tmpfs mounts?
