Compressing the vmdk
|Reported by:||wildintellect||Owned by:|
So when we moved to remastersys for the building the iso we missed the part about ln 62 in setdown.sh
cat /dev/zero > zero.fill ; sync ; sleep 1 ; sync ; rm -f zero.fill
This is run to help compress the vmdk image. However the iso generation is run after this currently. Which means the vmdk will contain the iso and it's tmp files.
2 options, shutdown, shrink and package the vm before iso generation OR run a cleanup after remastersys and the upload of the iso.
sudo remsatersys clean cat /dev/zero > zero.fill ; sync ; sleep 1 ; sync ; rm -f zero.fill #rm tmp, etc
Then shutdown, compress and provide the vm.
