16:25 <gewt> the only non-slow storage i have for staging a risc-v os image is /dev/shm
16:25 <gewt> it will take hours if i am sourcing it from the sd card
16:25 <maldridge> ...
16:25 <maldridge> I know I do deliberately byzantine things with in-memory filesystems, but /dev/shm is a bit far even for me
16:26 <gewt> it was mounted as tmpfs and it has about 8G free. which should be what i need
16:26 <gewt> if that runs out of space, it's time for xzcat | dd
16:27 <maldridge> :o
16:27 <gewt> it did not run out of space
