Should soft updates be disabled before using growfs? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
I'm merging my ext2-partition with my /usr by shrinking ext2 and doing growfs on the free space. I did it with soft updates enabled and it seemed to work until I tried to use /usr which resulted in kernel panic (ffs_valloc: dup alloc). After plenty of 'fcsk -y' I got it fixed while losing few random files. :( The errors were mostly related to soft updates.
