I bought a second hard drive for my computer since my /usr partition was getting full. I don't want to deal with hardware raid since I don't want to be dependent on a certain hardware vendor or chipset,
you probably don't have RAID hardware to deal, unless you bough 300 or more $ card.
so I'm wanting to go with geom. I'd prefer to not have to backup all my data(I know I should anyway, but it's a 500gb hard drive, and drives are growing faster than backup solutions). Would it be possible to do a geom stripe to expand
/usr > and keep all the data or would I just need to backup everything, and then put gconcat will do. gstripe not. if usr is on partition x, and you want to add partition y do: unmount usr dd if=/dev/zero of=y bs=1m (*) gconcat label usr x y growfs /dev/concat/usr fsck_ffs /dev/concat/usr now /dev/concat/usr is your /usr make sure gconcat in kernel is available when booting. * - only to make buggy growfs work without a mess _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
