tmpfs for the build area,
/var/cache/pbuilder/build, to speed up the build process. Files in there can get fairly large, for example right now I've 2.2GB of data in that folder. In addition, cowbuilder works by making shallow COW copies (using hardlinks I think).
Would it be feasible to mount the build directory under
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, but will be moving shortly to the prerelease of Maverick Meerkat. My machine has 4GB of RAM.
