Hey you are wasting a lot of space for your portage directory.
Read this report I wrote and learn more 8)


Actually I had problems with my portage beeing to big, but I found a post on it and changed the blocksize to 1024. The reason why my portage was filling up was that I had the distfiles in the same directory. I've moved it now, and portage is treating me OK now.

If the problem with portage filling up (ie. the filesystem says the disk is full but it's at 51%) it is possible to check the amount of free inodes. I had 51% of disk space free, but 0% inodes. Now it looks like:

Code:
Inodes:
/dev/hda6       483K    136K    348K   29% /usr/portage

Disk space:
/dev/hda6       905M    633M    224M   74% /usr/portage

One Short Question concerning the abuse of the "copy/format/copy back"-thing
as a defrag-alternative:

Wouldn't it be easyer to image the whole system disk (which I do regularly for system backups) and then writing back the complete image?

I guess the image thing wouldn't be as effective, since I always took an image - correct me if I'm mistaken here - to be a bit-by-bit representation of things on the volume. So you'd be writing back exactly the same thing, wouldn't you?

Complete with any already existing fragmentation. At least using the dd method anyway.
