Hello!

I work with the x86_64 images on APU2 hardware (APU2D4).

Since Build 10-10-2019-r41269 are now additional images in the x86_64 folders available with the appendix xxxxx_2GB.

What is the reason for this and when must I work with this images?

regards

There is nothing in the changelogs that I can find to explain it. Your guess is as good as mine.

internal storage on /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3 (both for me, each), public versions is 128mb. before both versions was 32mb. its the /jffs equivalent for x86. when i went x86 i was confused why my adblock file kept failing to completely transfer to /usr/local/. spoke to BS and he settled on this.

So in basic lame terms say if I created a new boot drive for DD-WRT and used the 2GB images the boot drive partitions will be split into 2GB size instead of the 128mb sizes?
