You put in your subject that /root file system is full and in the body of your message you put / is full. These are acutally two different things. Are you using the 'root' account to log in to the system? Are you installing ports for the 'root' user or another system user (for ex: your own personal user id)?

You want to make sure you are using a different account than 'root'. You should use su(1) to get to superuser access. Read more about it in the documentation. I could be wrong, I just wanted to clarify. Glad every thing has been going well. // Asenchi _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
