First of all, try to track down where all the space has gone, by
using `df' and `du' with the -x option.  For example, you can get
a good idea of which places in your root filesystem are the top-10
users of space with:

# cd /
# du -xm . | sort -nr | head -10

If this doesn't show up a lot of stuff, then there's probably a
rogue process which has opened a file and then removed it, so
it's not directly visible by traversing the tree with `du', but
you can still look for it with:

# fstat -f / | sort -k +8

After you get this sort of information, we can make more informed
suggestions about the best way to move forward :)

 I have been trying to track down a similar problem! Using the 
above method I think I have found 'natd' to be the culprit. Should 
'natd' receive a signal when 'alias.log' rolls over? Restarting 
'natd' seems to have releases some megabytes.

 Greetings people!
 
 I am using FreeBSD for quiet some years now, and I just recently
 upgraded my PC. Along came a Radeon x1600 (PCIE). Before that I
 was a happy-happy joy-joy nvidia (-module) user - it just worked. ;)
 
 Now I am having a dickens of a time to get the Radeon x1600 working
 under Xorg (latest) to work - even 2D would suffice. But google'ing
 around just yielded my own questions in several forums.
 
 The ati and radeon drivers (native from xorg, which i am using
 out of a currents ports tree) did not work with that card.
 Unless, of course, some magic incantations are required.
 Just to be on the safe side, I am hording virgin blood right now.
 
 Using the vesa driver my screen yells input not supported, and
 forcing the vesa driver didnt work out. I got a TFT that can, and
 should do 1280x1024.
 
 Using FreeBSD 6.0 Patch 4.
 
 Any help would be more than welcome.
 
 Kind regards,
 Christian Reiss.

I asked a similar question earlier and got the response...X1600's are
unsupported.
Does your X1600 show up in dmesg, mine doesn't. I would think that
whether or nor Xwindow System supports it doesn't matter until FreeBSD
actually detects the card.

   That depends on your shell. You're probably used to a
   bourne-shell variant like ksh, where ESC is used for word
   completion. In csh, use the TAB key.
 
   And note this is not line completion but file name completion
 - it will fill in as much as uniquely possible of the path starting

 If the command is in your history, arrow-up does line completion

cd to /flash_drive as non-root user:
flash_drive: Permission denied.

FWIW:
vfs.usermount: 1

(Mounting is no problem, usbd does that for me. It's _how_ it's mounted
that is the problem)


 As a side note, the device has a little slider that is supposed to lock
the drive from being written to. Does FreeBSD honour this? Is this a 
software or hardware lock?
 I'm pretty sure in the above case it is in the unlock position.

 At this point, you'll probably have to rebuild all the ports that
 depended on the old gettext.  The portupgrade tools minimize this risk
 by preserving old shlibs in /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg, so you can
 upgrade dependant ports at your leisure.
 

 Before upgrading just about _everything_ (which you will do if you
upgrade dependencies in gettext) try upgrading your GNOME-ish ports, I
found these were the holdouts when doing as you originally did.

 You don't *need* it, but xmms will lock the sound-device while playing
 and thus hindering kde-apps using it. One solution is to use vchans,
 but it sound *awfull* with my HW. An arts-plugin to xmms would be
 really nice, but I never got the plugin working apart from crashing
 everythin IIRC.

 I have 'artsd' set-up to use /dev/dsp0.1 (while xmms uses /dev/dsp) and
both co-exist nicely.

Re: Undo MBR

2003-09-04 Thread Paul Murphy
 Thanks for the replies.

  I have just installed FBSD-CURRENT on a test box. During install I
[etc]

 So, if there is nothing to be lost, just try it out and see what
 happens.  Smoke testing is a tried and true technique.

 Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

 You kind of have to read the disklabel man page in conjunction with
 the fdisk man page to make any sense of things, and then it may still
 take some experimenting.

 Yes I think that's where I got my previous command line from (or
someplace similar) although the example I read said 'count=15' vs.
'count=32'

 If you have a bootable DOS disk with fdisk, you can clear the MBR
 without destroying partitions by executing:
 
 fdisk /mbr

 I did know that, I just wanted to do it The FreeBSD Way(tm).

 corresponding switches/parameters, but the questioner said there was 
 nothing to save on the disk

 Yes

 and wanted to wipe it, so...

 Not necessarily, if I could do it without (potentially) destroying any
data, that would be the ideal solution (for future reference).

 Hmm, problems...

 Now, a little bit of history:

 This is a new install if FBSD-CURRENT from binaries, after which I
realized I shouldn't have installed BootMgr. Then I tried to 'undo' it
but having no success I did the email thing.

 _Meanwhile_ I did a CVS upgrade to FBSD-HEAD (for unrelated problems).

 I shouldn't think this would cause the boot0cfg error though. The
/boot/mbr file is pretty stable code isn't it?

 You might also like to try:
 
   mplayer -vo xvidix -zoom -fs (etc.)
 
 This also requires root privs, like DGA (curses!). Unlike DGA, you
 can't fix it with SGID perms on mplayer and /dev/mem (which implies
 that GtK GUI mode won't work, as this stops running if the EUID is 0)
 
 Xvidix seems to needs to open the video device as root, and there
 are only a limited number of built-in graphics devices (happily
 from my POV, Mach64 is one of them).

 rage128 too!

 To OP (I forget who that was), all these methods work fullscreen for
me. The best description of my card is:

[earth] /home/paul: scanpci

[snip]
pci bus 0x0001 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x1002 device 0x5046
 ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 PF/PRO AGP 4x TMDS

 If it is not just a mis-configuration on your part then I guess there
is a (major) difference between the Rage PRO and the Rage 128 PRO.
(Where I bought the computer from, they called it Rage Fury PRO)
