[ltp] cloning 14G drives
Tue, 23 Nov 1999 15:37:41 -0600 (CST)
I just used dd to copy my whole 14 GB drive to /dev/null:
# dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/null bs=1024k
13481+1 records in
13481+1 records out
I'm using the Mandrake 6.0 kernel (2.2.9 + various patches). It's quite
possible that one of the patches makes this work.
| that's what i thought originally. but empirically, it isn't so.
| i tried 'dd' and a small perl program (based on sysread). both
| stopped at approx. the same barrier: 7,560M.
