I was just given a dell mini 9. Joy a new toy
The SSD has failed, so I installed Slackware -current to a 2GiB SD card. Everything is working fine except I'm worried about killing the flash drive due to excessive read-writes.
Not being concerned with persistent storage, I've mounted a couple of dir's to ramfs -
none /tmp ramfs defaults 0 0
none /home/user/.mozilla ramfs default 0 0
I'd love to mount the entire drive as read only. Then certain directories that need written to as ramfs. However this mini 9 only has 512MiB, and I'm affraid I'll quickly run out of space. I am not using swap.
ramfs and tmpfs are new concepts to me. I did a little research, but was hoping for some user input on their experiences.
