I have installed ubuntu on the nexus 7 and have noticed through conky and the file manager that ubuntu says I only have 6gb of disk space. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening or should I file a bug report?
There is already a bug filed. For raring, only "8g" images are being made, which produces a 6g rootfs. One of the issues with flashing a larger image is that when you flash the Nexus7, it first copies the image to memory and then writes it out. This limits the image size. Android does offer a "sparse copy" which will split the .img files up during the copy operation. However, when we tested this prior to UDS, installs had a 30% failure rate. On promising route might be to resize the image after it copies, when it unpack
