Compressing the vmdk

Reported by: wildintellect Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: vmware


So when we moved to remastersys for the building the iso we missed the part about ln 62 in

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.

Something like

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.

Works most of the time, on 3.0 rc3 it failed on 3.0 rc4 it was done before iso building step and worked fine.
