View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.04.1 Server preseed tmpfs /var/log/

Hi All,

I've spent a week googling with little success in figuring out how to do this:

I've got a pretty comprehensive preseed set up on a 12.04.1 server install off of a USB stick. I need to be able to declare a tmpfs or aufs mount for /var/log/ from the preseed file for the final install.

<Offtopic on why I want /var/log/ as a tmpfs or aufs>
The systems that this installer is for are thin clients with flash storage. The flash memory on these don't have wear-leveling tech so I'm trying to cut down on writes.

I'd like to avoid having to put any custom scripts into the extracted ISO to make it easier in the future to migrate to >12.04.1 releases.

Has anyone ever tried this before?

Thanks all!
