comment 9 Mb Slackware distro - possible?
If you are trying to examine a black box, I'd look to see if there was a connection you could use... whether it is serial or something else. I'd also connect it in a secure network environment and use a network traffic sniffer to see what network traffic is being generated. I'd also use nmap to determine what network services are available.

comment 9 Mb Slackware distro - possible?
The /proc /dev /sys directories are pseudo directories and take up no physical space. You could certainly combine /bin and /sbin... For networking capabilities, I'd check the output of ifconfig -a ...that doesn't tell you if the env supports networking but rather if it contains any network hardware (which implies networking support)

Two did drop out - one because it was faulty, and one because...... ? That's the question.

comment RAID 5 with 4 disks fails to operate with one failed disk?
There were no spares listed in that list - so how did I wind up with two when the disk failed?

It's very much like what you said: mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=5 --raid-devices=4 /dev/xvdc /dev/xvdd /dev/xvde /dev/xvdf --chunk=128K

comment RAID 5 with 4 disks fails to operate with one failed disk?
This is enlightening, but its not an answer: there were four active devices - one fails and we suddenly have two spares and a down RAID... why?

Nope. Just set up the library search path as desired and be done with it.
