cleanup freeBSD


hi

I'd like to upgrade my freeBSD according to:

http://www.daemonology.net/blog/2007...n-upgrade.html

to freeBSD 6.3, but my 6.2-RELEASE-p9 seems to be full:
Code:
# df
Filesystem  1K-blocks    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a    507630  506204  -39184   108%    /
devfs               1       1       0   100%    /dev
/dev/ad0s1e    495726      14  456054     0%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1f  10965486 5859070 4229178    58%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1d   5948558  993076 4479598    18%    /var
linprocfs           4       4       0   100%    /usr/compat/linux/proc
I'm getting these errors:
Code:
# sh freebsd-update.sh -f freebsd-update.conf -r 6.3-RELEASE upgrade
Looking up update1.FreeBSD.org mirrors... none found.
Fetching metadata signature for 6.2-RELEASE from update1.FreeBSD.org... done.

The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:

src/gnu src/include src/krb5 src/lib src/libexec src/release src/rescue
src/sbin src/secure src/share src/sys src/tools src/ubin src/usbin
world/base world/dict world/doc world/manpages

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:
kernel/smp world/catpages world/games world/info world/proflibs

Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y

Attempting to automatically merge changes in files... done.

The following file will be removed, as it no longer exists in
FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE: /etc/defaults/devfs.rules
Does this look reasonable (y/n)?
howto cleanup freeBSD and find out unneeded files from other freebsd-update.sh upgrades ?

Hi, sorry about that. I had posted a friendly but smartass remark about how this is a Linux forum. I had never noticed the "other *nix" forum on this site. I always just go to the "0 reply" threads.

I would have deleted my post altogether if I could have.

I'm sorry. Good luck with your FreeBSD issue. I'd help if I could, but I haven't run FreeBSD since before 2000.

David

Oh, have you tried freeing up some space on / ? I've noticed that 3D games, openoffice, and java take up the most space on my /. You could just get rid of a few larger programs on / just to find the room to upgrade, then see what you can remove/add later.
