           Summary: VMware image doesn't have enough free inodes
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Tools
           Version: 2.4.x
          Platform: i586

            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: VMware Image

The VMware image doesn't have enough free inodes. According to ajorg, this
problem is caused because when the filesystem is formatted, it's formatted at 3
gigs. The formatter therefore only allocates enough inodes for 3 gigs of space.
Upon first boot, the filesystem is resized to the correct size, but the number
of inodes stays the same.

This problem affects anyone who wants to use the vmware image for large
projects. For example, if a user tries to check out the mono source and compile
it on the vmware image, they will run out of inodes.

There are 2 fixes being considered right now:
1. Format the ext partition with a ton of inodes, so that once it's resized,
it'll have the correct number.
2. Use reiserfs because it doesn't have a restriction on the number of inodes,
and it creates them dynamically.
