I agree. > However, in theory, if you had free disk space, you could use growfs > to expand the root partition without repartitioning, but I am dubious > about using that command against /. I believe, with growfs, the space that you add must be contiguous with the partition it is joining. So, unless there is a partition that could be shrunk next to root, (maybe swap is there) it wouldn't work. If there is room - maybe by mucking with swap if it is the next partition, then it might be do-able. But, I would also be leary of doing it with /. ////jerry > > -- > -Chuck > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
