Linux compressed file-system???
I'm looking for ways to fit Ubuntu on a 5GB partition. I suppose there are lots of files on my hard disk which I don't use (like /usr/share/doc/*). I'd compress them manually (tar.bz2), but I don't know how dpkg will react to that.
So my question is: is there any compressed file-system option for Linux (like NTFS compression on that other OS)?
Googling hasn't been much help.
