You're welcome, but setting USR_RAW_SIZE to 2890 is a bad workaround
because 2890 is the size that /usr takes in ram, whereas 1930 (the original
value) would be enough.
I've just found out today that what is lacking on USR is not space but
inodes ! In my case, USR was formatted with 248 inodes when 298 were
needed. So I increased the number of inodes to 350 by adding in mu file, in
USR section, around line 272, the option "-N 350" to the mkfs.ext2 call.
This line now reads :
eval mkfs.ext2 $MKFS_OPT -N 350 USR

I hope it will be helpful to you.
