Hi guys, I know that in the mailing list a while ago people were wondering why SoftUpdates were not enabled by default at install time on the / partition.
Now I installed FreeBSD 4.7 RELEASE into a 4GB slice. I did not create seperate bits for / or /usr and such - but one large big space. So I enabled SoftUpdates when I was busy with FDISK at the install time and now it seems like it may have been a bad idea. Now I know 4GB is not much but it seems that there is no more space left. And at times df -h will tell me there is -180MB available on / ! [ Dont get me wrong here, I am not saying that SoftUpdates is causing me lack of space. ] Now I know that I should just du to see whats taking up the space and I will investigate that this weekend - but I was wondering if it was a bad idea to have gone and enabled SoftUpdates on / seeing as it is one big "slice"/"partitoin"? This machine is just a setup that I've got to play with - I'm sharing it with WinXP but would like to move across to FreeBSD full time. So I have no problems with having to re-install it!
