Recently I've run freebsd-update on my desktop machine, but it failed
saying that it cannot save its files anymore to /var because the
filesystem is full. now df shows something like this:
/dev/ad0s1d 253678 250630 -17248 107% /var
If this is what I think it is, a 256k /var, then I'm not surprised. Handbook,
online tutorials all recommend at least 1G for /var ever since the 4.x days.
I use 5G, but I save logs for a year.
I faced the same problem last week while trying to update to 7.1-RC1 on
a disk with 197MB /var.
Here's how I fixed the problem:
# freebsd-update -d /path/to/big/path/directory/ upgrade -r 7.1-RC1
# freebsd-update -d /path/to/big/path/directory/ install
Simply use freebsd-update's -d option. man freebsd-update for more info.
