First of all, glad to still be running FBSD after all these years.
I tried following some docs I found online in order to make my /usr
partition bigger and made it all the way to growfs -s, which is where I got
First of all, here was my original dilema, what I did, then a descript of
where I am regarding growfs problem.
System (aka firewall): Pentium60 40M RAM 2 NICS, running FBSD4.5-stable (a
great firewall running 24/7 since OCT 2000.)
I tried to upgrade (make buildword make installworld to 4.11-stable).. I
made the new world and installed the new kernel but not quite enough space
to do the last steps (mergemaster and then installworld).
So I built a spare box, and installed FBSD on it.
I put the hard drive from the firewall as secondary master, and a larger
drive as secondary slave.
* I ran dd and imaged the old drive onto the new drive
old drive seagate 1.2gb
new drive quantum 4.3gb
* I put the new drive into the old faithful P60 (firewall). It boots up
fine running 4.11-p22 and is currently online as my firewall.
What is left to do:
Finish the 4.11 install which ended on make kernel KERNCONF=CUSTOMKERN.. I
just need to mergemaster then installworld as single user.
Obviously, /usr partition (/dev/ad0s1f) is basically full w/ 8.6MB free.
** soo.. I did some fdisk magic and got stuck on the growfs (final step) in
order to growfs /usr
fdisk reports my 1 partition @ full size of disk but no idea how to properly
Here is what I have:
cylinders=8895 heads=15 sectors/track=63 (945blks/cyl)
media sector size 512
partition 1 sysid 165, start 63, size 8405712 (4104 Meg), flag 80 (active)
beg: cyl 0/head 1 / sector 1
end: cyl 1023 / head 14 / sector 63
basically I need help filling in the following blank (/dev/ad0s1f == /usr
# growfs -s ______ /dev/ad0s1f
as shown above, fdisk sees the correct geometry as 4104MB partition but
/stand/sysinstall disklabel editor sees ad0s1 as 2888MB, which is the amount
of space I thought I was to be adding to /usr via growfs. Currently, my /usr
slice is 975MB and really needs to grow. :)
Please let me know what other info I can provide that will help you help me
solve this problem. I have read man growfs and some docs online, however,
I'm stuck and dont know exactly how to resolve the problem.
