RE : dealing with mke2fs -T option



Title: RE : dealing with mke2fs -T option

OK.
But as stated in the mke2fs man page, the -T option is for 1 inode per X bytes.
Except a lower number of available inodes, if 1 file == 1 inode whatever the -T option used, what is this option for ?

Because the FS creates one inode per file (unless you create a hard
link, anyway), not one inode per X bytes.  You only created one file
here.  ;-)
