Have FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE, and I've run out of space on the slice /
I really want to avoid having to backup and reformat, or doing anything that's super-time-intensive - from reading various posts and blogs related to FreeBSD, it appears to me that I can resolve my issue by using growfs - the next slice after / is /tmp which has plenty of room free, and can afford to be reduced by a little. It doesn't seem to be affecting system use except that I can't add new users.
Here's what I look like now:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/ad0s1a 128990 127682 -9010 108% / /dev/ad0s1f 257998 1254 236106 1% /tmp /dev/ad0s1g 18359694 4955608 11935312 29% /usr /dev/ad0s1e 257998 8400 228960 4% /var procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc
I understand the process in general, but am a little afraid of hosing the box in the process; most of the stuff I've seen assumes a greater familiarity with tools like disklabel than I have. Does anyone know of a step-by-step tutorial or article on doing this? If not, would anyone be so kind as to give me a high-level breakdown?
Alternatively, if anyone knows how I can free up some space in / perhaps by moving something to another slice, I'd be open to that possibility.
Thanks in advance Jeff LaMarche
