Running Openindiana (solaris branch) and using some csw tools too.
csw stuff is installed at /opt/csw. Since my root pool space is
shrinking I thought I might move all of /opt off on a different zpool
on a different disc. Then just put a symlink in place at /opt.
I decided to do it with rsync and after rsyncing everything to /t1/opt
(rsync -avv /opt/ /t1/opt/ )
But when I check the result with du I find a huge difference in size.
the original /opt shows 355 MB but the copied opt shows only 173 MB
I thing tried with copy using gnu copy and did 'cp -a' /opt/t1/
Again it comes up with the big difference in size..
Any ideas what could explain that?
