When building from ports it's quite easy to change back to fam, just put WITH_FAM_SYSTEM=fam into /etc/make.conf For existing systems/binary installed systems, you can just pkg_delete -f gamin* and install fam instead, so gamin libraries wil be replaced by the fam ones, it works well to me. One nasty thing is that when afterwards installing a package requiring gamin, it will fail with errors. To prevent this you could just "fake" the pkg db that gamin is installed however actually fam libraries are installed. > Whatever gamin is doing, it is not showing up in lsof, but the file > system is still busy.

Maybe because you just unmount on exactly the right moment, when gamin is not occupying the file system? Or just all windows and processes are closed cleanly. /Bastiaan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
