Subject: Re: a (documented) way to get the Ext2+ filesystem size?

Hi, Ivan,


      Do you want use mkfs.ext2 to make a small ext2 image file
     and write the image to mmc or some devices?

     when you write it to block device, the tool can modify the sb info
     about the file system size?

    for example:

           You must cost  60s to write a 64MB ext2 image
           You want to make a 8MB ext2 image
           So you can cost little time to write image to block device
           and use 64MB partition space?


    Is this?




Best Regards?
