Mount with bind flag to root filesystem
Mandrake's automatic partitioning has left me with no space on /
I figured I could just chuck in another drive and mount + bind it to the / filesystem to add additional space.
Is this 'actually' possible and how would I set it up to mount and bind on boot to allow the system to access any important files which might be stored on the extension.
Failing that, Is there any way I could mount a new disk for /home and re-allocate all space on the existing /home to /
This, however, seems like a more long winded approach.
added and partitioned new disk with filesystem to match that of / on existing disk
mounted new disk partition to /mnt
mount --bind /mnt /
to no avail
