Hi folks, I encountered problems after running
# portupgrade -aRrvO At completion following warning popup; ..... ...... Backing up the old version /var: write failed, filesystem is full bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out. Possible reason follows. bzip2: No space left on device Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout) ** Backup failed. ---> Uninstallation of linux_base-7.1_5 ended at: Mon, 24 May 2004 22:20:19 +0800 (consumed 00:00:09) ---> Upgrade of emulators/linux_base ended at: Mon, 24 May 2004 22:20:19 +0800 (consumed 00:18:22) [Updating the pkgdb <format:dbm_hash> in /var/db/pkg ... - 260 packages found (-0 +2) .. /var: write failed, filesystem is full ---> Session ended at: Mon, 24 May 2004 22:20:22 +0800 (consumed 20:46:59) /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.6/pkgdb.rb:241:in `origin': dbm_store failed: Cannot update the pkgdb!] (PkgDB:BError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.6/pkginfo.rb:178:in `origin' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:709:in `do_upgrade' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:686:in `main' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:685:in `each' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:685:in `main' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:207:in `initialize' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:207:in `new' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:207:in `main' from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:1846 # Reboot PC. Gnome could not be started with a warning something like server configure error..... I have no chance to write down the complete warning because it jumped to another empty window after a while. Nor I have an editor to copy the warning down. KDE started properly. Following problems were found. 1) # /usr/src/etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate updatedb Rebuilding locate database: /var: write failed, filesystem is full cat: stdout: No space left on device 2) # df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/ad4s1a 253678 45872 187512 20% / devfs 1 1 0 100% /dev /dev/ad4s1e 253678 4672 228712 2% /tmp /dev/ad4s1f 36354884 4619692 28826802 14% /usr /dev/ad4s1d 253678 249478 -16094 107% /var 3) # portsclean -C portsclean: Command not found # cd /usr/ports # make search name=portsclean No printout 4) On KDE desktop Konsole window - Font characters being huge Settings -> Font -> Custom started 'request font' window. It was possible to select font. But Settings -> Save Settings seemed having no function. On starting a new Konsole window fonts were still huge. That were the mistakes having been discovered. Others unknown yet. Kindly advise. 1) How to free space. The HD is of 40 G in size solely for FreeBSD 5.2 2) Where can I find 'portsclean' package 3) How to discover the cause of failure in starting Gnome 4) How to set fonts on Konsole window TIA B.R.
