No, /compat should be pointing off to your /usr partition, so it isn't using any significant space. The question is how to figure out where the space is going, because you do indeed have what *should* be plenty of space. Use "du -x" to figure out what's putting a lot of data on /. > Is there another way this should be done? Depends on how you use your box. For an average desktop, I'm not sure it's worth splitting up your partitions at all. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
