My FreeBSD-4.9 setup uses one drive in "dangerously dedicated partition"
where all of my partitions live in one slice:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a 64462 37886 21420 64% /
/dev/da0s1e 64462 4 59302 0% /tmp
/dev/da0s1f 516062 6086 468692 1% /var
/dev/da0s1g 2064302 1464672 434486 77% /usr
/dev/da0s1h 10660096 720 9806570 0% /data
procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc
I almost run out of space during a buildworld, so I'd like to expand
/usr from 2 GB to 4 GB by taking space away from /data. Since my
filesystems will remain in the same slice, is it correct that I don't
need to use fdisk(8)?
So my procedure to do this is to recalculate the size/offset/cylinder
settings for my partitions "g" & "h", change those settings via
disklabel(8), then use growfs(8) on /dev/da0s1g? Seems simple enough,
and the data on /usr should be preserved, correct?
But will /dev/da0s1h be okay? Is editing the disklabel enough? Or do I
need to reformat the partition --- and, if so, how? I'm not too comfy
using newfs(8) directly. Can I just run "newfs /dev/da0s1h" after
running the growfs(8) command and it will use the disklabel settings?
Or can I be a wuss and use /stand/sysinstall? :-)
Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks in advance!
