error: Filesystem full !? FreeBSD


Hi!

Last night I was compiling azureus with java and a kernal at the same time and I get the error: Filesystem full. All I have is a / (7.5Gb) and a swap partition (512Mb).

du -h gave me that /usr uses 6.5Gb but I only installed like 6 programs, and small ones too !? My guess is that ports uses a lot of space while compiling but how do I clear this space so I can start compile again. Reboot didn't work. Also, how much space does port need? I meen if I can't use ports on that computer I'll be damned!

Thanks in advance!

Java takes up a lot of temporary space during its build (I think about 2 gig is the recommended free space for the build, but I could be wrong). You can delete some of the categories in /usr/ports to make extra space for the java build. When java has finished building you can then cvsup and get you ports back. I have just had a similar experience with NetBSD. I reserverd 7.5 gigs for /, but when I used cvs to get pkgsrc, I was left with 1.5 gigs but I only have XFCE installed and a few other packages.

Ok thanks but I need get the space back like before I tried to port azureus. I'm making a /usr/ports/ make distclean now but it seems only to give me 650 mb so... Where is the other 5-6 gig? Is it the uninstalled ports that steals so much space?

The uninstalled ports seem to take up a reasonable amount of disk space. On NetBSD, I managed to reclaim quite a lot using "make distclean" in /usr/pkgsrc (similar to /usr/ports).
