As it is a family machine I know when I am the only one using it.
Well, fsck-ing /var on a fully multiuser system is hairy, at best, since /var is almost always being written to by something or other. Single user mode is the simplest way of dealing with this, since none of the logging, mail, or one of any of a 10^4 daemons will be trying to write to it, while you're trying to fix it. With mysql, I would assume* many of the same problems with /usr (or /usr/local, if that is its own filesystem). *given that I know meow-all about mysql: where it may wish to write, or what horrible perversions it commits while running. -- -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
