My churches web server is having problems compiling world for FreeBSD
7.0-p10 (I believe I just did the csup last night). It gets to this point
and then stops with this error:
touch: No such file or directory
A little history for what's going on; the server was not responding at all
so I took it home to diagnose (it was at a friends house, where it's
hosted). I turned it on and it booted up ok for me, which was a little odd
because he told me that it wasn't doing "anything." So, I began looking the
system over. Within 10 minutes the system became slow and was rather
unresponsive to things. For example, saves while running vim took 20
seconds or so. Within a few minutes the kernel panicked and I had to reboot.
Before the panic I noticed that there were some background file system
checks going. So, since it was rebooting anyway I went into single user
mode and performed fsck on all of the partitions (except the root, that was
marked as clean). There were many problems fixed especially on the /usr
partition. I'm betting that this missing file, gtype-desc.h, happens to
have been one of the many problems fixed.
At any rate, after running the file system checks I rebooted normally and
everything appears to be fine. I then updated the system and kernel source
code and that's when I found this problem. The kernel built ok and I've had
the system running for up to 2 hours since fixing the file systems without
incident. It's apparently corrupted file systems rather than hardware.
Never the less, I will be turning up what smartd is monitoring because I do
have it running and received no e-mail about hard drive problems.
So, basically, the question for everyone here is, what's the simplest way
to get a fresh source code tree so that I can build the world applications?
