I'm trying to install FreeBSD 7.0 on our new server (Intel Xeon 2x4- core machine), which has a 250GB SATAII disk. I used -bootonly CD image, and assigned whole disk to FreeBSD. Breakdown is:
/ - 2GB
swap - 4GB
/var - 9GB
/tmp - 4GB
/usr - 213GB

As soon as I start copying files from FTP, this is the error I get:
/: write failed, filesystem is full

This shouldn't happen, since sysinstall did newfs on these partitions.

What to do?

Something went wrong when specifying the disks where the OS
is to be installed to. As it has already been mentioned, /
is placed on a RAM disk. Extraction of the OS's components
has to go to the mountpoints where your correctly created
partitions reside (which are more than big enough, especially
regarding /, I think).

Did you do the installation via the sysinstall utility? If
not, make sure the correct mount points are given for the
software installation, e. g.

        /dev/ad0s1a -> /mnt/
        /dev/ad0s1d -> /mnt/tmp
        /dev/ad0s1e -> /mnt/var
        /dev/ad0s1f -> /mnt/usr
        /dev/ad0s1g -> /mnt/home

The structures in / (/bin, /usr/local etc.) are not the
structures you want to have on the disk you're installing on.

PS. Where's your /home partition? :-)

There used to be an issue with the installer that if you crashed out of the install process somewhere then restarted it from within sysinstall without rebooting you could get a similar issue. Maybe it's been fixed by now though. Sorry not to be more specific, it's been a long time since it has happened to me, maybe someone who knows more could confirm.
