UFS file system corrupt


I'm in the process of moving from Linux to FreeBSD, because I'm tired of dependency issues, ignorant package managers, and feature cripling of software pacakges because of patent issues. I have a major issue though, while configuring Xorg the system froze big time and I hit the reset button after 15 mins. of idle time, and my file system had a major corruption, and now it's very unstable, to me this is just too big a mess to clean up, so I'll just reinstall the OS.

But here's my question to you guys: Will a repartition and reformat fix my file system errors, sometimes these file system things confuse the heck out of me.

Repartitioning and reinstalling should fix your problem.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure.

Anyway, as I like to say: "Don't go with that OS X stuff, get the real FreeBSD!"
I'm off typing: pkg_add -r kde

I'm quite tempted to try OS X but I am not willing to pay a premium for the luxury. Maybe the move to intel will result in cheaper Mac OS based pc's then I can try it. If I am not keen on Mac OS, I can always install Linux or FreeBSD on the hardware.
